I visited upon a recommendation from a friend. I'm originally from NJ as is he, so we know a good cheesesteak (I've eaten at Pat's in Philly a ton of times). A touch pricey, but man the cheesesteak was good. It's cooked just right on...More

Being from Philadelphia, it's hard to find a REAL Philly cheesesteak here in Florida. This place GOT IT RIGHT! After speaking to the amazingly friendly owner, he himself is from Philadelphia so this guy knows what he's doing. My husband is a cheesesteak fiend and...More

We are from just outside of Philly in Pa. Cheesesteaks were a way of life. If you haven't been up there and are down here wondering what it is like, don't try anything else, this is legit!! The owner is great as well, stop for...More

My wife and I stopped in for a late lunch, as I stated it is really overpriced. The sandwich was good but just not worth the price paid.

Only one other party seated when we arrived. Being gluten intolerant my wife ordered the cheesesteak without a bun and I ordered the same. There is much to be said when the food is good but the personality of the staff leaves a bit to...More

I stopped by last night with zero expectations and they were one of the few places open late. The Philly cheese stake was awesome! Must go.

Walked to lunch at South-A-Philly, had a salad loaded with Salami, cheese, and veggies. They are very generous with their toppings on the salads. You don't walk away hungry!

We are a staff of friends and family who are proud to bring you the best tasting cheesesteaks and hoagies in Florida. Our bread is shipped down par-cooked from South Jersey, then baked fresh throughout the day, so you can enjoy authentic flavor straight from the oven. Each day we slice our rib-eye by hand to ensure our steak is tender and delicious; we would never dream of serving that pre-sliced stuff! We have original Cheez Whiz to give your cheesesteak that real Philadelphia flavor, the same way we ate them growing up. If that’s not your thing, we also offer American, Provolone, and Swiss cheeses, all from Dietz and Watson, who also provides all of our Italian meats (for an unforgettable Italian hoagie that will make you think you’re right back in Philly!). We have put our hearts into creating sandwiches we are proud to serve, and we hope you enjoy eating them as much as we enjoy making them.
