What is Spanakopita?

Spanakopita is a Greek savory pastry stuffed with scrumptious layers of spinach, feta cheese, chives, onions, and Greek seasonings wrapped in smooth phyllo dough and baked until golden brown.

What is a Philly Cheese Steak?

Our Cheese Steaks are built with thin-cut, premium Rib Eye steak (these come direct from Philadelphia!), chopped up with fried onions on a cast iron grill and loaded into our baguette bread with White American (American Swiss) Cheese. It is truly the Philly-E-Sota experience!

You use American Swiss Cheese? But I thought Cheese Whiz makes the authentic Philly Cheese Steak?

Actually, The Original Philly Steak Sandwich did not have any cheese! Shortly after Provolone or White american was introduced, and much later Cheese Whiz was added to the mix. Most Philly natives lean towards either Provolone or White American. Cheese Whiz took off in popularity due to the fact that it was faster and cheaper to make. We wouldn't be able to call ourselves The Original Philadeplhia Style if we used Whiz, we would have to call ourselves The New Philadelphia Style and TNPS doesn't really roll off the tongue well, does it?

What are your hours?

We are open 11AM-10PM Monday-Saturday and 10AM-10PM on Sunday.

What does T.O.P.S. stand for?

T.O.P.S. stands for The Original Philadelphia Style, a tribute to our traditionally crafted cheese steaks and Philly Roots.
