I lived down in Philly for many years, and I have to say that these were the best cheesesteaks I've had since I've moved back to NYC... The size of the sandwiches could be a bit bigger, but overall worth trying them!

Always appreciate the effort, but it is not recommended. For $5, who cares - worth the snack if you're walking by. But have no expectations, especially if you've ever had a real cheesesteak.

My husband and I were very excited about trying this place, since we are natives of Philly. The meat and onions were very good, they reminded my husband of the steaks his grandpa used to make. The bread was poor for a hoagie and the size was very tiny. Good for lunch or a small dinner. If you are really hungry, you may want to order two steaks. Fries were very good.

Stopped in to check this new joint out and was very impressed. The owners seem passionate and commited to delivering the real deal. I asked the cashier to give me what she considered the best combo of ingredients. "Gimme your favorite" I asked. Without flinching she was up for the task and ordered me a steak/whiz/onion combo. It was so good, my mouth is watering as I write this. Give these guys a try--you won't be dissapointed.

I love cheesesteaks but normally only get them when I'm in Philly because I haven't found anything up to par in NY. Now I have. The steak was awasome and the rolls were nice and fresh. I had it 'wit whiz. It took a few minutes to get my food but you can't really blame them as the place was packed. A nice change of pace from the usual slice. I'm anxious to go back.

As a Philly native, I'm always up for trying what passes for a cheesesteak at most delis or pizza joints. Toasted rolls and chewy slabs of meat have been the norm, until I recently passed this new 3rd avenue storefront. It was packed but I went back the next day and have been at least 3 more times since. Soft rolls, minced meat, and even the same ordering process as Pat's and Geno's ("whiz wit'out, etc."). Not quite on par with those two, but easily the best cheesesteak I've had in NY. A little on the small side, but their enormous plasma screen on the wall makes up for it. If you're looking for an authentic cheesesteak, you can't do better.
