I've driven by Thunderbird a thousand times and have always wanted to try it. Finally tried it and was not disappointed. Their pizza is delicious! The cheesesteak is good, but was a little on the dry side for me. Staff was friendly. Definitely worth a...More

Been going for 40 years. One of the many great local spots for hoagies and steaks and some Philly attitude. They have salads too but stick with the sandwiches or pizza.

Pizza and sandwiches are just average. Ordered from here a few times and just think there is better in the area. They seem to get good reviews from other folks so maybe there is something else on the menu that is good that i have...More

Never a bad meal in almost 60 years. Best pizza steak period Breakfast lunch or dinner the T Bird is the best fast food. Great salads if I am eating healthy. Monday pizza specials are legendary

The last few times my husband and I have gone here have not been worth it. They have cut down on the quality of their food considerably. They really didn't care to hear any comments from long standing customers. We won't be back.More

The T Bird is my must stop when in town. Great cheesesteaks, chicken cheesesteaks, pizzas, wings, burgers, grinders, hogies, salads and more. Great atmosphere and long history.

Another institution in the Broomall area. Been going here since I was a kid. Cheesesteaks are delicious as are the wings. Good comfort food but of course as is always the case with comfort food. It's bad for you - but so good.

Never disappointed. Platter is always very nice. Sandwiches were excellent. Cheese steaks are a great treat

Solid food. I invariably order their cheesesteaks (with provolone and onions), and although I don't think it ranks up with the likes of Chubby's (or Dalessandro's), it keeps me satisfied. What I'm most impressed with is how friendly and personable everyone in the place is....More

Thunderbird is family owned and operated since 1956. We serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a friendly environment with a hometown feel. Known for our cheese steaks, said to be the best around. Plenty of other good food options from salad to stromboli. If your passing through town stop in. We have summer hours so please call ahead. Thank you.
