Philly's Famous is a small "hole in the wall" shop located at the corner of Ray and Alma School. It is relaxed and clean and reminds me of just a cool old school "by the slice" pizza or sandwich shop. As you walk in, a large menu showing lunch combos is right there; a full menu is on the wall. Just ask any questions you may have for clarification about the menu- the owner & staff were very helpful. Place your order at the counter and they get the meat going on the flattop grill.
The lunch combo comes with 8" sandwich, fries (regular or seasoned, which I had) and a medium drink (w/ free refills). The rolls were fresh and chewy- perfect for the cheesesteak. There was an average amount of meat, I wouldn't call it stuffed. I added tomatoes and lettuce for $0.50 extra. They have a marinara, garlic sauce that was good to dip the sandwich into, but most have the meat cooked with it.
I could see during the lunch rush they could get backed up since everything is made to order.
Lunch was $8.00 each and we left satisfied.
