If you love ooey-gooey, melty-cheesy, sizzled steak, or chicken, cooked to perfection and real deal Amoroso hoagie rolls straight from Philadelphia – oh yeah, you know what I’m talking about – then you will absolutely love Best of Philly Cheesesteak House off of Seven Springs Boulevard right on Woodgate Plaza.

Jen Simon says, “BEST, BEST cheesesteaks aside from Philly itself! It’s like a little piece of home. I love coming here; it’s always a pleasure! Plus fast and friendly service, with affordable prices. Thank you!”

Since taking over Best of Philly in March 2020, owner Ben Cellini has continued to amaze regulars going to the Cheesesteak house since former owner Mike was running it. 

“Ben was super nice and made my food the way I ordered it. I want to thank the horrible sub place across the street for telling me about this place. Ben, you were right, I will be back,” says recent customer turned regular Jennifer S.

Regular Samantha O. says, “After trying so many spots, I finally found my ‘go-to’ place for authentic Philly Cheesesteaks! They are so delicious!!! They taste just like the ones up north, or better! Ben does a great job!”

Serving the Trinity community and surrounding areas for over a decade and known to the locals as a “sandwich lovers’ dream,” Best of Philly Cheesesteak House boasts the best Philly cheesesteak sandwich around! And not just any cheesesteak – an authentic cheesesteak with natural Philadelphian ingredients, cooked by a Philadelphian native who knows how to make it “just right,” and in my opinion, even better. The quality of the real Philly meat tastes fantastic, and the cheese melts into the perfect combination of flavor surrounding the authentic Amoroso roll. If you want a genuine and delicious Philly Cheesesteak in a family environment, you’ve come to the right place. 

As Ben always says, “Best of Philly’s cheesesteaks only rival his old home of South Philly regarding flavor and quality.” Another cheesesteak enthusiast named Sharon agrees: “Best of Philly has amazing cheesesteaks!!! The only place I’ve found after 13 years in Florida that is comparable to the ones from home (and is actually better than some of the places I used to order from up there!).”

“Absolutely DELICIOUS! This place is the sandwich place I had been looking for! I suggest you get ‘The Florida’ with mushrooms, onions, and sweet peppers,” says recent customer Nicholas N. in his 5-star Google review. This particular Philly happens to be the Best of Philly’s “favorite and most popular item” of them all! This Philly “does this thing where it just makes your mouth water,” says Ben, who also enjoys gobbling up one of these delectable sandwiches when he gets the chance. And you know that if Ben, a Philadelphian native, likes it, it’s going to be good! “I’m just proud of the product,” Ben says, and of course, so many others are pleased too.

“People love our cheesesteaks so much that they rarely try anything else, but we have so many delicious choices on our menu,” says Ben. “I always try to encourage our regulars to try something new, but that is a hard battle to win once they have tasted our Philly!

You obviously can’t go wrong with a Philly Cheesesteak from Best of Philly, but keep in mind that there are many other delicious items worth trying as well.

Start your order with a fresh and healthy salad or whole deli pickle. Indulge with some fried ravioli, mac and cheese bites, jalapeño poppers, or with one of my favorite treats; their fresh-cut french fries! These fries are the perfect side for your Philly, or just on their own with a side of gravy or hot cheese. Gravy for your French fries is the ultimate comfort food, and you will love them!

Local food guide Mary LaPierre says, “This was my husband and my 1st time at this phenomenal dining establishment and as Ben said, ‘It won’t be your last time!’ Well, Ben, you were 100% right. The homemade fries w gravy were out of this world!! The Philly steak sandwiches doing it the “Florida” way proved to be the “Philly way!!!!!” Highly recommended!!!”

Pair those mouth-watering fries with any one of their delicious clubs (BLT sandwich, BLT club, turkey club, ham club); or any of their hot sandwiches (grilled chicken, chicken parmesan, sausage & peppers, sausage & peppers parmesan, breaded fried chicken, breaded fried fish) or cold hoagies (Italian, Ham & cheese, salami & cheese, turkey & cheese, extra cheese) and you’ve got yourself the perfect meal! 

Other favorites are their bone-in wings, boneless wings, burgers, fried mushrooms, crispy onion rings, and breaded fried shrimp. There’s also a kid’s menu that includes favorites such as chicken tenders, grilled cheese, and hot dogs. Every kid’s meal includes fries or chips and oreo cookies. 

Enjoy the Best of Philly without leaving the comfort of your home!
