Philly Me Up is the second cheesesteak shop I have tried in Baton Rouge. It has so long since I was at the other one, so I really can’t compare. But it could not have been better than the one I had here. It is...More

I moved to Arkansas last year and have missed this place so much. They have nothing like this in NWA and really wish they did. I love their food and can always rely on them to deliver on a delicious philly.

Good food, not great. The meat was not sliced like I expected, but that's not a bad thing. It was fresh cooked/made, and the bun was fresh and soft. I would go again but not drive across town for it.

We lived in Philly for 7 years so we are always on the look out for a good cheesesteak. Everyone claims to have a good one but very few actually do. Philly Me Up is pretty darn close to a true Philly Cheesesteak. We ordered...More
