Been going for 40 years. One of the many great local spots for hoagies and steaks and some Philly attitude. They have salads too but stick with the sandwiches or pizza.

Never a bad meal in almost 60 years. Best pizza steak period Breakfast lunch or dinner the T Bird is the best fast food. Great salads if I am eating healthy. Monday pizza specials are legendary

The last few times my husband and I have gone here have not been worth it. They have cut down on the quality of their food considerably. They really didn't care to hear any comments from long standing customers. We won't be back.More

The T Bird is my must stop when in town. Great cheesesteaks, chicken cheesesteaks, pizzas, wings, burgers, grinders, hogies, salads and more. Great atmosphere and long history.

Another institution in the Broomall area. Been going here since I was a kid. Cheesesteaks are delicious as are the wings. Good comfort food but of course as is always the case with comfort food. It's bad for you - but so good.

Thunderbird is family owned and operated since 1956. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a friendly environment with a hometown feel. Known for our cheese steaks, said to be the best around. Plenty of other good food options from salad to stromboli. If your passing through town stop in. We have summer hours so please call ahead. Thank you.
