What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Translation Guide: Rude Servers
The East Coast seems to spawn all the cheap thrills of the epicurean world: the best bagels, the “real” massive slabs of thin-crust pizza, and the original cheesesteak. Today’s Groupon brings the latter mouthwatering mess to the West. Give your taste buds a trip to the City of Brotherly Love without letting your tongue leave your mouth: $10 gets you $20 worth of cheesy, beefy delight at Phat Philly.
The sandwich artists at Phat Philly aim for accuracy, beginning with the bread. Chewy Amoroso rolls (imported directly from Philly) are stuffed with hormone-free Masami Ranch American Kobe beef, caramelized onions, and an explosion of the oozing cheese of your choice (white American, provolone, all-natural, housemade cheddar beer sauce, or plain old Cheese Whiz for the purists).
The expansive menu offers tons of takes on the classic. Try the BBQ steak, a mouth-watering missile dribbling with sweet Phat’s “Mr. P” BBQ sauce and melted provolone cheese. Carnophobics will revel in the plentiful veggie options; there are mixed veggie, Portobello mushroom, tofu, and seitan versions. Each sandwich is available in two sizes—7” or 12”—and prices average $6.25 for a veggie regular to $11.25 for the whole shebang phat-sized sammie.
This deal is perfect for working professionals too busy to cook, sports fans looking for an easy snack to bring to tailgating parties, or anyone hunkering to nosh on an exotic regional delicacy without leaving the state. With your Groupon, you’ll have value left over for an order of waffle fries or beer-battered onion rings, both $4 for a regular order. Phat Philly is open every day from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. This Groupon is not valid for delivery.
Yelpers give Phat Philly four stars and rave about its deliciously authentic ingredients:
- Finally! I've had real Philly Cheese steaks from Pat's and Gino's, and this comes closest! I got it w/ onions and wiz. – Valerie D.
- The only thing not authentic was the super nice west coast service ; ) – Mauby N.
- The best cheesesteak I have ever had. Me and my girlfriend got the 12' classic cheesesteak and it was really tasty. – Mike W.

One Yelper says that the only inauthentic thing about the Philadelphia experience at Phat Philly is the “super nice west coast service.” Should you ever order a philly in Philly, don’t be put off by the comparatively rude service; just use this handy translation guide to see what the surly East Coasters are really saying:
What They Say: “Wiz? Onions? Fries?”
What They Mean: “What toppings would you like on your sandwich? Also, are you interested in ordering french fries? They’re quite good here, and not frightfully expensive.”
What They Say: “This moron wants to order a chocolate shake! We ain’t go no shakes, dipwad!”
What They Mean: “I’m sorry, sir, but we don’t sell shakes. Maybe we should. I’ll look into it. You look handsome today. May I cobble you some shoes?”
What They Say: “Seven bucks.”
What They Mean: “My deceased grandfather gave me this wristwatch, but please take it. It complements your skin oh so delightfully. I love you.”
