Philly Home away from Philly home – Great food. A real taste of Philadelphia. Since leaving Philly in 1982, I have searched across the country for a place that comes close to serving a true Philly Cheesesteak.
Both my wife and I are originally from Philly. Our first visit made the drive from Riverside well worth it. We have hit this restaurant twice, and now that I work in Costa Mesa, I will frequent it more often.
Originality is the key. As onyone from there knows, a true Philly cheesesteak starts with the bread. But they don't stop there. All imported items from Philly - Amorosso Rolls, Frank's Soda's, Tastykakes, Wise Potato Chips. I thought I was back in Germantown.
Excellent is the only word that truly expresses my feelings towards this establishment.
Oh, man, are they good – Though I've never been to Philadelphia, folks who have swear that this is the closest you'll get to authentic outside of Philly proper. They fly in their Amoroso rolls, drinks and all kinds of pre-packaged East Coast comfort foods like Wise Potato Chips and Drake's Cakes direct from the City of Brotherly Love. You must go with the pepper steak (sweet sauteed peppers with onions) with Whiz (there's provolone available, but it's just not the same without the CheezWhiz and it's the only time I'll eat the stuff) Heaven! I'm drooling just thinking about it. Look for the signed drawing from Matt Groening of Simpsons fame on the wall among polaroids of happy Philly transplants enjoying their grub.
Great Philly Cheese Steak (for CA) – I've had their cheese steak as well as their yummy cheese fries. Both are sooo delicious! The food doesn't even seem too oily. The price is descent, and if you in Orange County, you might as well come here for lunch and try it out. I don't even live in the area, and often go because of the craving.
