Reviewed 15 April 2014

No longer have to drive to Jim's in the Northeast. Finally have a decent cheesesteak right here in town.

“Nice setting, cheesesteak ok but not Philly caliber”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I am a big fan of going to neighborhood, non-chain restaurants. This one is in a strip shopping center. The interior is very nice indeed -- brick with widescreen TVs on sports, and though the store is narrow, it doesn't feel that way. Spotlessly clean, too. However, if you are going to call yourself Philly It Cheesesteaks and you're one town over from the city, you better have really good cheesesteaks, and as much as I wanted this to meet that standard, I can't say it did. The taste was off -- I think that partly might be the sauce, which was billed as cheddar sauce and might well be, but it did not seem to go right with the steak. Onions were hard to notice. The steak quality seemed fine when tasted alone, and the bun was very good. Cheese fries were crinkle cuts with the aforementioned cheese sauce, ok but unremarkable (though very large for the price paid). In other words, OK, but not quite worthy of its name.
