I lived in Philly for nearly 5 years and these cheesesteaks can compete with Pat's and Geno's! The owners are great and so genuine! It's just like being in Philly, except they're friendly!

Saw the reviews and made it one of the places we visited while in Sarasota. The cheesesteak was excellent and the owner was super nice. It should be on everyone's to do list while in Sarasota you won't be disappointed.
