They have good gyros, philly chicken and philly steak sandwiches. Its a small restaurant, but good food and good service. You can order take out too. The cost is very reasonable about $10 per person.

Being from the Phiily area, I'd like to think I have a right to rate and review Philly's. I lived here years ago, moving back and just ate there today. It's just as I remembered. And if I'm not mistaken, same owner. That's consistency!

I love some Phillys! The food is excellent. The service is excellent. You get what you pay for and so much more! I suggest getting a belly buster if you're real hungry and want a challenge. The lasagna is my second best thing!

If you want a huge sandwich this is the place to go. Even a small individual sandwich is too big for me. I usually order a tummy tickler that has a small Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and as my side I get the out-of-this-world baked potato salad!

Have previously reviewed Philly's but on a return trip to Charleston (the greater CLS area) we certainly had to visit again. Very good - no doubt they set the standard. We arrived early, but within 10 minutes the little restaurant had filled up. We both ordered - what else - cheesesteaks - very good and cooked perfectly - as other... More

Good food, fast service. Sit indoors or out. Enjoy a hot delicious sandwich and cold drink then go right next door to Here Be Books and Games to browse your favorites. A great location. Lots of menu items to choose from and the food is always fresh.

Well if you are from the Philly area and want a cheesesteak, this place feels like home. They make great cheesesteaks and have a great menu to choose from including other sandwiches and pasta dishes. Yummy
