    the Wicked Philly packs some massive flavor, too. That's due to the loads of tender steak and onions, blankets of nutty provolone cheese, slather of mayo and the seriously delicious hot giardinera! Read more

    These steaks are 10 times better than anything I ever had in Philly. I ordered the Papa Genos Steak with provolone and no mayo. Minga this is a tasty steak!

    So delicious! I would choose this over Philly Connection. Not very greasy either. Give them a try as any of their sandwiches or hoagies are great!

    Best cheesesteak in houston! I love the #1 original but my boyfrind loves the #4 wicked philly. We rave about this place to our friends!

    The "Wicked Philly" should be the default sandwich. It's like the regular #1 but with spicy Italian peppers.

    STILL the best cheesesteak place in town, from the bread to the cheese and toppings and the super greasy steak. wow.

    close your eyes and point at the menu... I guarantee it will be delicious (well... not an actual guarantee... but you get the idea)

    The Disco Fries are fries with cheese whiz and brown gravy. a southern version of poutine

    You can't go wrong with the Pappa Geno cheesesteak and fries with gravy. Perfect food for a hangover.

    The burgers are nothing special. Get them only when someone in your group does not like phillies.

  • Anthony F.

    Wicked Philly is my favorite. You got to try the disco fries (gravy and cheese whiz)
