    Great to be able to partake in a Philly food tradition! And good French fries. Daughter and I both feel fine after.

    My boyfriend is a celiac and we go here often! Their chicken cheesesteak with american cheese is amazing. The bread is homemade(or it tastes so at least!!). They have a small and a large size roll option. Their fries are gluten free too!!!! YUM

    Not celiac friendly. They can't say they never fry chicken tenders in the same fryer as the fries. I specifically asked for them to change gloves and the cook did- after he put new meat on the grill with the same gloves he handled regular rolls. The regular rolls are grilled on the same cooktop and then placed where the meat and onions are to get the meat and onions on the roll. My very sensitive celiac daughter did NOT even eat her cheese steak. $12.69 later and I'm eating a mediocre cheesesteak. I'm partial to Jim's on South street. Joe's cheesesteak had less flavor - not counting the GF roll, which isn't that good either.

    They made our fries in a separate fryer. Made sure to be aware of the gluten free bun. Very friendly and great service. GF Bun was tasty!

    Got carry-out for a birthday gathering. Three people in group had celiac. Everyone enjoyed their cheese steaks and fries. The people with celiac really enjoyed the roll. Staff member on the phone was helpful; took time to get our questions answered. Loved the pizza fries and the Old Bay fires. The (plain) fries need ketchup or some seasoning. The "Small" sandwich was pretty big and had a lot of meat (I recommend this size)

    They have really good food for a good price. fries are gf. I was quite disappointed with the person from the waitstaff who was quite snappy with us when we asked about gluten free (since it's on the menu), saying that they just had a gf roll, and then just said curtly that they couldn't tell us if any of the meat had gluten in it. Made zero effort to answer those questions and seemed put off that we were asking. I try to do good research before going to a new place--from what I had read i was not expecting that. :/ Maybe they were having a bad day, but that was our experience. Anyways, I could see the cook change her gloves, and there was no issue with the food at all, which, as I said, was quite good.

    Sooooo good! I always get the buffalo chicken one. I never get sick and they're super attentive to being gluten free.

    Good cheesesteak and they don't toast gf buns so no contamination worries. A pickle bar too that was without contamination issues!

    They're good about cross contamination, kind staff, and the cheesesteaks are pretty good.

    Amazing buns from taffets kept completely separate and they also only used meat from a grill that no bread touched. So good!
