We ate here 7/22/17 while staying in town. Ordered a Philly cheesesteak and onion rings. I could only eat a couple bites of the sandwich. Cheese was literally Cheese Whiz, and it made the sandwich horribly salty and so gloppy it was falling apart from...More

Subs were very similar to what we tried in Philly. It was good but I wished they heated the bun since enjoying a hot steak and cheese sub on a cold bun doesn't gel in my opinion. Still would recommend it.
