Ended up here a few years ago after a concert and went back this year on my last trip to NYC, loved their cheesesteaks once again and the waffle fries are great as well, price is pretty good too, nice spot!

This place gets it right on many levels - rolls, correct amount of meat, very distressed interior - just like the steak joints in PA. Food quality was horrible. Meat was tasteless, not enough onions or cheese. I will not be back.

We go to 99 Miles to Philly every week or two, and it's a great cheesesteak. The bread is top notch. Waffle fries are very good too. Limited menu, but when you want a cheesesteak, this is a great place to go.

The place was clean, quick, and very friendly. The sandwhich was larger than I expected (probably a full foot) and they stuff it full of goodness. The criscut fries were deliciously crispy. They will give you a ton of napkins and handwipes to use while...More

Delicious cheesesteaks to stay or go. Build it yourself...choice of cheeses, with or without onions. You are the boss. Eat and enjoy. Favorite of neighborhood students and police trainees from the nearby academy.

I'm British, and Ive never been to Philly, so I know nothing of what a Philly cheesesteak is meant to be like. However, I know what I like and this is it. I had a cheesesteak with provolone cheese, and waffle fries. Man it was...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
