Today we visited this awesome place with the team. This restaurant is almost more than 25 yrs old and had very good reputation. I loved the veggie sandwich with fish and curl chips. Fresh and tasty. It has many branches with in the US. Love to visit again.

Th Philly steak sandwich was PERFECT! The beef was great quality and the portion size was big. The cheese was tasty and the excellent bun pulled it all together. And the fries were really fresh tasting. The food reminded me of being back in the northeast. You order at the counter and they call your name when the food is... More

Came here for lunch, was ok but nothing great. Had the 10inch BBQ steak special sandwich. A lot of filling, but the steak was more like mince. Fries were quite chunky and the oil looked looked like it needs changing. Have had better philly cheese steaks elsewhere

Great place for lunch or a quick simple dinner. The cheese steaks are great, hot and cheesy. The rolls help make the sandwich so tasty. Try the onion rings! And for a sweet snack, try a Tasty Cake. The restaurant is a bit small but worth the visit.

Saturday was not too busy so that was fine with us, I was just wondering why food prep was not that fast. My son did not like his "gaylic" cheesy bread. I had the philly steak sandwich, it was not as good as I remembered. The hubby however liked his sandwich. You order at the counter and wait for your... More

I have been here before & I have gone back each time I am in Pleasanton. What can I say? I like it here. The King of Philly with sweet peppers & onions is great. The onion rings are great too. The only thing that could improve this would be the addition of fresh brewed iced tea instead of the... More

I spent my college years in Philadelphia and have had a great opportunity to sample Philly's finest. I was so excited to see that there is a Cheese Steak shop in Pleasanton, as there are very few places to get a true cheese steak. They've done a good job making sure to have Tasty Kakes and Amoroso rolls, but that's... More
