My husband and I frequent Philadelphia often and to date our favorite cheesesteak place has been Dalessandro’s. We have tried a few other places but are usually disappointed. Chubby’s is located across the street from Dalessandro’s and is the first place we have tried that rivals Dalessandro’s cheesesteaks. I ordered a chicken cheesesteak and my husband ordered a traditional cheesesteak;... More

Steak sandwich was very good, a little wet but great taste. The service was awesome for a busy Friday. Worth a try if you are in the area.

Overall a good cheesesteak hoagie.. They stuff the roll with tons of steak and onions! Plenty of seating at the counter or booths. Parking lot holds about 12 - 15 cars. They also serve beer and can make you a cocktail or a nice drink. No coke for the Captain ( they have Pepsi products) - my girlfriend was a... More

I enjoyed the local atmosphere of this restaurant but to be honest cheesesteaks and hoagies just aren't my thing. The chicken was pretty tasty but it was just pretty plain to me. I liked the fries but the best part was the Hank's wild cherry soda. My friends seemed to really enjoy their sandwiches so I guess it is recommended... More

You won't leave hungry, that's for sure. The $9 cheesesteak is about a foot long, and absolutely stuffed with delicious chopped steak. I had mine with provalone and grilled onions, but stuff yours with any of the large variety. Service is prompt and and friendly at this small, modest spot. Parking is a bit tight. They also have a nice... More

Modest looking fast food joint from the outside, but inside - oh such good cheesesteaks; moist succulent beef without being greasy, onions, mushrooms, choice of cheese. And a cold cabinet packed with interesting beers. We picked Commodore Perry IPA.

Great service, as soon as we sat down the waitress was there to answer any questions about the menu. There were 4 in our party, we ordered our sandwiches and drinks and didn't wait very long. The cheese steaks were excellent, Each of us got something different and they were all good. The onion rings were very good and the... More
