    GREAT cheesesteak! I got an original with cheez whiz, hot and sweet peppers and onions. The hot peppers are VERY hot. Loved it. Fries are also great. Highly recommended. Best cheesesteak in NYC?

    Always get the Old Bay fries for a taste of home... And if you want something lighter than the (delicious) cheesesteaks, try the Turkey Hoagie Salad. Also, best onion rings I've had in NYC.

    I've devoured one of their classic cheesesteaks with onions every week, and found myself happily sated while listening to my coworkers complain about their limp salads and disappointing sandwiches. Read more

    Cheesesteak with Whiz is very good but the Italian fries are the best. Perfectly crispy, and is delicious with herbs and cheese on it.

    Philly cheesesteak was surprisingly amazing. Rivals anything you would find in Philly. Definitely a bar joint type place, but if you're here, the Phillys' are a must.

    While the cheesesteaks take top billing, don't sleep on the yuengling rings (beer battered onion rings) -- they are excellent. Order 'em with a little ranch and hot sauce on the side.

    Their cheese steak is the best this side of Philly. Their Italian Fries are excellent, and they have Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in bottles... a personal favorite. Great ambiance, too.

    If you crave Geno's, Patsy's, or Tony Luke's, this is the place for you. Philly sandwiches are the best, and the bread here is almost as good. Order a cheesesteak whiz wit, or a roast pork with rabe!

    OMG! Heavenly food at reasonable prices! Cheesesteak with provolone and fried onion a must plus the mozz sticks and Italian fries...delivery is good but the location even better when sports is on. Mm!

    Whiz wit. Philly born & raised, I can attest it's the closest you will get in NYC. Although rolls are shipped in daily from Philly, they are more doughy and heavy than the real deal-- my only issue.

    Perfect spot to watch a game. Has nooks to sit with groups. Even if you don't like sports come for a beer with a group

    I don't know what they do to these fries but they're the perfect combination of creamy interior with pleasingly crunchy exterior and I cannot get enough of them. Read more

    Solid Philly-style cheesesteaks and sandwiches; we're particularly fond of the roast pork and broccoli rabe.

    Long lines and a bit of a wait, but the cheesesteaks are definitely worth it. As are the bacon and cheese fries!

    I'll be honest, I was surprised how fun this place was... staff was accommodating and funny (on a St. Patrick's day) and prices were good.

    Go 30 mins before kick off for seats. Chilled out vibe compared to more football watching bars. Vegetarian options are good. Esp sliders.

    A solid option for a Philly Cheesesteak in NY, though nowhere near as good as what you can get in Philadelphia itself.

    Fries here are double-fried & have a bit of batter, which make it taste denser than they really are. So, they're not my fave.

    The mayor says, "eat everything on the menu. It's all good. The Italian fries are delectable and I don't even like fries.

    I can't appreciate things from Philadelphia since they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl, but this place doesn't entirely suck.

    Their hot buffalo wings were hotter than we get at the UES location.

    Food is good, service sucks! I noticed 15+ taps asked for a beer menu, she handed me the faded out/somewhat laminated paper from my own table (which I already perused and couldn't decipher half of)
