My husband and I are from South Jersey and have not found a decent cheesesteak in the south. We found the South A Philly cheesesteak to be authentic and absolutely delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked and the roll - just like up north. The...More

Wow - I grew up in Philly and therefore, I think by some location related genetic altering, love Philly cheesesteaks. I have long since moved around the world, and have always looked for authentic Philly cheesesteaks outside the Philadelphia area. I have mostly been disappointed...More

The Philly cheese steak sandwiches were great! Good service, clean and well decorated restaurant. The restroom is in the foyer and accessed by key. No view because it is tucked away in a large multi unit building.

I'm from Northeast Philly and grew up with Philly cheese steaks. This places serve the best I've had in years. Rolls are awesome and meat and cheese is cooked to perfection. Mitch knows who to make a great steak sandwich.

A lot of reviewers have reported that South A Philly has great cheese steaks. I do not agree. The roll was good. But the cheese steak itself was average at best. The onions were few and far between. I got mine with provolone cheese and...More

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.
