After our tour at the US Mint we found this little gem a few blocks away! Certainly not a fancy place but the food and service was awesome! We experienced our first Cheesesteaks here and all we can say is they were YUMMY!! The sandwiches were served HOT off the grill by a great waitress!! This is a mom and pop operation for sure and it felt good supporting a small business!

My wife and I stopped in because we were in Old City and there was clearly no cheap places around. Old City Pizza was the cheapest place that also sounded good.
We ordered a large meet pizza and it was very good. Not too crispy, not too greasy, and the price was quite fair.
There is not much to complain about. The server did seem to disappear after our food was delivered.
We were also going to come back in the morning for breakfast. The menu says that breakfast starts being served at 9:00 a.m. but when we showed up at 9:40, they still were not open. It was more their loss than ours, but the times should definitely be posted correctly.

Just happened there really for change for a parking meter. But the 2 guys running the place on Christmas Eve made my day with good food and informative information. Give this place a shot.....you won't be sorry.

We spent the day walking around Center City and stopped here for some pizza to go. The pizza was incredible, and I'm a New Yorker--their pizza was delicious. I would have given the place a 5 star or "Excellent' if it wasn't for the very angry waitress who was slamming things down and cursing in front of our kids. Her anger was not directed at us, I think it was about her boss, but she was so rude to her co-workers, slamming orders down for the cook, cursing and complaining about this guy to a co-worker right in front of us that we seriously thought about cancelling our order and going somewhere else because we felt uncomfortable. I'm glad we didn't though, because the food was incredible.

This is a great local neighborhood spot which mostly deals with take outs, but there are nice tables and booths if you want to sit and enjoy your meal. This is not linen tablecloth dining,but the food is fantastic, home made and tasty. You can order Philly specialties like cheese steaks or a home made lasagna (home made noodles, yum) dinner or order a pizza to take out.. Whatever you can be sure it will be good. We also ate breakfast here one morning and can highly recommend the omelets and breakfast sandwiches. One big plus was we enjoyed taking with the owner and the staff.
