|★★★★★ well worth the drive from NYC to Philly!|
|★★★★★ We were in love with this place. I'd given up on finding a zabihah authentic cheesesteak. This place was very cheap, and honestly I wouldn't have been bothered if I had to pay more for this kinda food. However, the last 2 times we came here the doors were locked. And no one answers at their phone number. I really hope they haven't closed down, but it seems like thats what happened. :(|
|NR After reading the excellent reviews on this establishment, I went to this restaurant last Saturday, but was disappointed to find it closed. There is a banner outside announcing 'Grand Opening' but no other info. Some men were doing repairs to the outside of the building & they said they had no information on the business.|
|★★★★★ I love Southside, their hoagies are so good. Everything is very reasonably priced and the staff is very friendly masha Allah. I'm in love with their pastrami hoagie lol|
|★★★★★ I came to this place on a trip and I can honestly say that this place has the best cheesesteaks that I had tried while I was in the city. The actual restaurant may look a little beat up, but the food is excellent. It took me less than 2 minutes to gobble down one of their subs and go order another one|
|★★★★★ ALLAHU AKBAR ! This is what a Philly Cheesesteak is when I imagined eating one.|
First of all, there are two types of cheesesteaks. One is a mini, that is the size of a subway footlong sandwich. Then they have the regular cheesesteak, which I wish I tried.
These sandwiches are sooo amazing. It was worth it coming from NYC to get this. It is sad that I overheard brother Rafiq tell someone he is closing the restaurant after 37yrs. It may not be a 5 star decor restaurant like those new places that are open nowadays, but you feel the love of a brother opening his own place and striving on his own.
May Allah grant him good in this restaurant and he stays open. Truly, an institution of Muslims in America.
|★★★★★ omg the sandwiches were soo good, i only wish i had gotten an extra for the trip home. highly recommended! |
|★★★★★ bismillah. my pregnant sister says "the hoagies are the bomb," mashaAllah. she liked her turkey hoagie more than the mushroom cheesesteak, and she plans to try "the Muslim hoagie" on her next visit -- which will be soon, inshaAllah. i thought the mushroom cheesesteak was very good, but i would have liked it more with provolone than cheddar. alhamdolillah alaa kulli haal. my dad did not look to enthusiastic till he applied hot sauce to his cheesesteak -- then he ate the whole thing and was the first person to finish. we also tried a (beef)-"bacon" burger, and it was delicious, though i would have preferred it without the bacon. my sister wants me to wrap this out, but she permits to mention that "the service was very friendly." mashaAllah, la quwatta illa billah. alhamdolillahiladhee ataminna hadha.|
|★★★★ I called in earlier and had a very delicious cheese steak sub ready for me by the time I got to the place. The neighborhood did not seem very nice, but the brother at the counter greeted me with Assalamo Alaikum. I paid 5.75 $ for one sub which is pretty good. All in all, a very positive experience!|
|★★★★★ Thier philly cheesesteak is the best in the city, and so are thier roast beef and chicken sandwhiches. Thier fish sandwhich is unreasonably huge, the size of a football!|
|★★★★★ Southside has been a West Philly icon for nearly thirty years. A wide range of delicious sandwiches are complemented by equally mouth-watering platters prepared on site. The cordial and efficient staff appear eager to satisfy. What better way to top off a fine meal than by crossing the street to thank ALLAH in the equally historic Masjid.|
|★★★★★ I had my first Philly Cheesesteak here. Mashallah! The brothers are so nice. The place is called South Side Sandwiches now, though. The place is in the middle of remodeling right now but the food is fantastic! It is very cheap and comes in very big portions. I would definitely go there again!|
|★★★★★ These cheesesteaks are the best in the city. Period. Mashallah, the brothers are very kind and welcoming. Well worth the trek.|
|★★★★ The new addition makes it a nice place to eat with friends. Food is pretty good. The philly cheesesteaks are the best Halal one's I've ever had. Service is great; every time I go to Philly I try to come here.|
|★★★★★ Huge hoagies that are really good! Although I love Saud's cheesesteaks, Southside defintely beats them on size.|
|★★★★★ 100% halal. The chicken cheesesteak, and the fish hoagie is sooooooooo good. The fish hoagie has a lot of fish, so much that it falls out the sandwich. Also the Akbar drinks are sweet and good.|
|★★★★★ The best halal philly cheesesteak. On 60th street in West Philly|
|★★★★ Great steaks and hoagies. Tasty barbeque on the weekends. Highly reccommended!|
