The food here is delicious and full of flavor. Highly recommend getting a sandwich from here. The restaurant itself is a little dingy and dirty.

This sandwich shop promotes their Philly cheese steaks, which are not made to Philadelphia tradition. They have been modified for local tastes. Our group stopped by for a quick lunch. Service was fast at the register and the sandwiches came out quickly. The decor is extremely plain. The tables and chairs are mismatched. Some chairs should hit the trash, they... More

As far as the food goes, they make the tastiest Philly Cheesesteak in town and at a decent price. If you're looking for classy surroundings, don't go there. It is the stereotypical hole in the wall. I really like their fries too.

They are a little dive that serves the best philly in the valley, quick and fresh- Try the fried mushrooms, they are hand dipped not frozen and off the charts good.

This is a great place for a philly cheese steak. Great sandwiches. Place may not be well kept, but I go for the food and it's very popular.

When I visit my In-Laws in Sandy, Utah. The trip is not complete without a stop at the Phily. In fact it has become a family tradition to get me my 8" Hot Combo and Fries.

Terrible service. Overheard a young girl ask an employee if they had fry sauce, the employee said "we do but I'm not getting it for you". Service was also very slow, employees were not wearing their hats properly to catch hair from falling in food. Gross place.

This place is so filthy I refuse to go back (my husband really likes the sandwiches). It is absolutely gross, I don't understand how they are allowed to operate this way. The sandwiches have kind of gone downhill in the last couple of years, it seems they are not as tasty. But such a turn off to see everything covered... More

I had fond memories of this place from about 15 years ago. I was back in the area and decided to revisit. I arrived at about 11:30 am and best the crowds. The place is definitely a dive. It reminds me of being at your divorced alcoholic uncle's house. Not super clean. Horrible decor. Weird ways of doing things. A... More

The cheese steak is colossal!! Hey its a sandwich shop so don't expect fine digs when you get there only a good selection of well made and tasty sandwiches! When I went the place was packed with people lining up outside waiting their turn. You order and pay at the register than find a table or wait on the side... More
