The service was great! The guy/owner that helped me was very friendly and even though my groupon was expired he didn't hesitate to let me use it for the amount that I paid for it. That is the groupon promise, however, some establishments seem to not know this. I was very pleased with my visit and will go back again as well as recommend this place to others!

What You'll Get

Like the Earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mustard magma run with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of cheesesteaks, specialty sandwiches, and more at The Cheese Steak Shop.

The Cheese Steak Shop pleases palates of all types with a menu stocked with savory steak options, including specialty steak and chicken sandwiches, classic Philly-style cheesesteaks, and meatless-but-hearty steak fries. Pizza sauce, mushrooms, and provolone top thinly sliced grilled steak to form the 10-inch deluxe philly cheesesteak sandwich ($6.99), and the King of Philly sandwich employs 50% more protein and dairy products to halt hunger with the beefy authority of a bovine traffic cop ($8.49). Chicken-tempted customers may put a spin on classic sandwiches by outfitting them with piquant poultry instead ($6.75 for a 10" sandwich), siding their selections with large orders of steak fries ($2.49) to dapple tongues in flavorful shades of ketchup. Each satisfying stack is mouth-delivered on a soft italian roll and comes customized with your choice of grilled onions and hot or sweet peppers.


65 Yelpers give The Cheese Steak Shop a four-star average, and Yahoo! Locals give it a 3.5-star average:

  • the cheesesteaks are awesome. flavorful, meaty, ooey gooey on the perfect bread. they've got a ton of options from extra cheese/meat to pepperoni and other less traditional ingredients. – sean g., Yelp, 1/31/11
  • Our Cheese Steak came out steaming hot and OVERFLOWING with steak and other goodies. Hands down, I have never had so much steak in one sandwich---there was NO way they could have fit anything else in it. SCORE! – Nam N., Yelp, 12/17/09

About The Cheese Steak Shop

Above the counter at The Cheese Steak Shop there’s a sign bearing the warning, “CAUTION: MAY BE HABIT FORMING.” Once you’ve sampled the shop’s Philly-style sandwiches—made with thick-sliced beef loin served on an Italian roll—you’ll understand why. Guests can customize their sandwiches with different toppings, adding zest with chili peppers or the flavors of a summer cookout with barbecue sauce. Those with oversized appetites can take on the King of Philly sandwich, a hefty 10-inch cheesesteak loaded with 50 percent more meat and cheese than the shop’s classic offerings.
