One of, if not the best hot sandwich places in Utah. I love the Super Philly Burger with Pastrami. The fries and onion rings are awesome!

Love this place!!! Yes it is a dive!!! The food is worth it!! Cooked fresh to order, with a great selection of sandwiches but the Philly is the best. Love their homemade fries. Have learned to always order a half fry order as it is very large. I work very close to this place and eat at least once a... More

The Philadelphian is really a great restaurant. The only real downside is that the building inside looks like it would be loaded with health code violations. After some research though, they actually have less violations than the local Olive Garden and Applebees. The food here is great though and we visit it frequently. Everything is cooked where you can see... More

The food here is delicious and full of flavor. Highly recommend getting a sandwich from here. The restaurant itself is a little dingy and dirty.

This sandwich shop promotes their Philly cheese steaks, which are not made to Philadelphia tradition. They have been modified for local tastes. Our group stopped by for a quick lunch. Service was fast at the register and the sandwiches came out quickly. The decor is extremely plain. The tables and chairs are mismatched. Some chairs should hit the trash, they... More

As far as the food goes, they make the tastiest Philly Cheesesteak in town and at a decent price. If you're looking for classy surroundings, don't go there. It is the stereotypical hole in the wall. I really like their fries too.

They are a little dive that serves the best philly in the valley, quick and fresh- Try the fried mushrooms, they are hand dipped not frozen and off the charts good.

This is a great place for a philly cheese steak. Great sandwiches. Place may not be well kept, but I go for the food and it's very popular.

When I visit my In-Laws in Sandy, Utah. The trip is not complete without a stop at the Phily. In fact it has become a family tradition to get me my 8" Hot Combo and Fries.

Terrible service. Overheard a young girl ask an employee if they had fry sauce, the employee said "we do but I'm not getting it for you". Service was also very slow, employees were not wearing their hats properly to catch hair from falling in food. Gross place.
