If your craving a great cheese steak this is the place. It’s in the same ballpark as the original Cheese Steak Shop. So if your a fan of The Cheese Steak Shop this is the place. Really it is. The sandwich has a perfect blend of cheese, meat and peppers on an awesome roll.
Philly would be proud Cheesesteak shop stays true to roots. It is bold of a place to name itself after an area’s iconic food such as Chicago’s deep dish pizza or New England’s clam chowder or even Baltimore’s crab cakes. But that is exactly what has been done by Philly Cheesesteak at 1619 E. Hammer Lane #110, Stockton. We were told the owner of this 2-year-old sandwich shop is from South Philadelphia, home to Pat’s, Geno’s and other cheese- steak meccas. Philly Cheese- steak delivers an impressive representation of this Philadelphia specialty. The restaurant is one of a 10-year-old franchise started in South Carolina. The Stockton shop is tucked away in a shopping center on the north side of Hammer Lane, but has visible signage on the street. The 26-seat shop’s yellow, orange and red décor may shock the eyes but the food more than appeases the palate. Philly Cheesesteak **** Where: 1619 E.

Tried for the first time 11/19 Wife was picking up food on the way home from work and did not have the coupon we ordered 2 15″ sandwiches but they wouldn’t throw in the free 10″. Not a good start but we’ll see how the food is. If it were my place I would rather provide a good customer experience and keep a customer who might get at least 4 sandwiches a month coming back rather than be stingy
