Foursquare Tips

  • One of the few places in NYC you can get a legit cheesesteak served on a real Amoroso roll. Order like a true Philadelphian and get it Whiz Wit'. Read all about my visit on WinstonWanders below!!
  • Not bad for outside Philadelphia city limits. They use Amoroso's... legit!
  • New-comer to the downtown food truck scene, Phil's serves up the best cheesesteaks in the city. Ask for 2x cheese: American + Wiz. Usually on Water + John Thurs., but check @philssteaks
  • Keep it simple. Whiz 'wit is the way to go. If you're eating with a friend, split an order of friesit's more than enough for two.
  • The provolone with onions was the way to go! And from May 1-15 2012, they are helping to raise money for Citymeals-on-Wheels. So get something delicious and make a donation!
  • Great cheesesteaks! Def best in NY, and better than most in Philly too
  • Awesome cheesesteak!
  • The vegetarian cheesesteak was an underwhelming mushroom, peppers, and cheese sandwich. The bread was too wet so I scraped everything off and threw it away. The plain fries were outstanding though.
  • Good ole American cheesesteak!
  • The American cheesesteak with fried onions was better than any cheesesteaks I've had in NY or Philly (yes, Philly).
  • Got the steak with American, onions & mushrooms. Really good. Fries were only so-so.
  • It's ok, expensive for what you get in terms of size of portion and quality of the meat. Te bread is ok, and the onions are always undercooked.
  • Great steaks! Long line to get one, but well worth it! Definitely as good as most places in South Philly!!!
  • When Phil's is in FiDi it's a much better option than Shorty's. I like the Special with Wiz. It gets messy to eat though, I wish it came with a wetnap.
  • The Wilson .... nuff said!
  • Full, American, wit, sweets: one tasty cheesesteak.
  • Amazing. Perfect amount of messy and cheese. Get the wiz (I think that's what it's called) with lots of hot sauce soooo good!
  • Pretty good steak. Not as good as Philly, but good.
  • NYC's first cheese steak food truck! Order online and skip the wait at
  • Phil's Steaks will be rollin' to the Village Voice's Choice Streets food truck tasting event on 4/24 at Pier 86 / The Intrepid! More info here:
