Reviews for The Cheese Steak Shop

What a great find. Stopped in here for some takeout on my way to a picnic at the marina for a little fresh air. It was perfect. The staff was great and the food was on point! I'll definitely be back. Thanks for staying open and for your awesome service and amazing food!!

It's not a Philly cheesesteak but it's still a good sandwich. They use sirloin instead of ribeye, yellow instead of white onion, and they put salt and pepper on the steak (not sure why). Amoroso rolls suck but I suppose it's decent for a west coast sandwich. Bottom line, it's not authentic but it's still good.

I'm from Philly. I know a good cheese steak. This is a great cheese steak. If you hear the clacking of the metal spatulas and they are routinely scraping the grill... you've arrived. Meat flavorful, cheese melted the right way, rolls. That's right rolls. Not cakey bread that falls apart. Amarosso baby! The portions are literally over the top. And ohhh, you probably will be waiting in line and looking for a table. That's a good thing.
