Fast service, consistent quality. The best cheesesteaks around here. Excellent steak and cheese subs, get the cherry peppers. Good burgers too.

We used to go here, all the time, when Paul was the owner. When we went there a couple weeks ago, we discovered that Paul retired and sold to the current owners. I agree with comments that the atmosphere is a bit different, now. The food is still good. I am going to give them a chance to grow into the business. The cheesesteaks are still the draw, here. There is no better cheesesteak in Livonia, in my opinion.

The good: food is fresh and hot. Sandwiches are big and mostly worth the money. Fries are fresh and hot. Pepsi instead of Coke.

The bad: Pricey. $5 for a burger. $2 for a pop. $8 for a cheesesteak. The cheesesteak is probably the closest to a good value. Needs more cheese. They charge extra for everything.

The atmosphere is very different now. Used to be a friendly comfortable place. Now it seems loud, rushed and less welcoming.

The new owners seem more "entitled" and less welcoming.

Food is still very good. But for $24 for two meals, I will probably head over to Bench Pub or Stables.

Lefty's Cheesesteak Hoagies have always been our favorite. Probably the best anywhere, including Philadelphia. However, the previous owner and his wife have now retired, and as of about 3 months ago, there is a new owner. He may or may not have the same recipes, but the atmosphere is very different. Both of our cheesesteaks had grizzle, and mine even had what seemed to be a small bone in it. The prices are a bit high, and any sides such as spicy peppers or ranch dressing are served in a very, very small container, not much bigger than a thimble. As for the atmosphere, it is really geared to a younger crowd, and is not as family oriented as with the previous owners who took a genuine interest in their customers.

If you haven't eaten at Lefty's Cheesesteaks in Livonia, you have missed a lot. Go eat there right now...you won't regret it. The cheesesteaks are just delicious, generous, and a great value. Don't listen to the cheapskates with reviews saying this place is expensive. Everything is homemade from high quality ingredients. There is nothing I hate more (food wise) than processed, cheap, GFC type restaurants who buy everything frozen and just fry it up and serve it. This place makes it's own food. The Cheese, Steak, & Mushroom Cheesesteak is the best, EVER. Get extra cheese on it. Great onion rings too.
They are nice people, fast, and you get what you pay for. DELICIOUS!
