The Best Cheese Steak Place Outside PhillyIf you feel like taking a bit of a trip, Philly is still the best place to get a cheese steak. However, 99 Miles to Philly isn't what you'll have to travel to get a comparable one if you live in NYC; ...
Great PhillysWhen you're in the mood for a Philly cheese steak (or chicken!) sandwich, this is a great place to come. The service is quick, the cheese melted just right and the bread is warm but not soggy. I pro...
Real DealThis place rocks! If you are looking for the real deal cheesesteaks this is the place. As good as philly. The steaks were tender, greasy, perfectly cooked onions, and the bread was spot on. The staff is friendly, and it is a comfortable room, with a warm brick wall adorned with old philly photos, an amazing original rocky poster, and who can look away from there huge flat screen.
Good EatsWhen I'm in the mood for a greasy cheese steak, this is the ONLY place I consider. The kitchen is fast, but you sometime may have trouble getting a seat, since this place is very small. It's worth the risk though.
Bad!This place is a mess! Two things stand out 1) The meat on the cheesesteak sandwich was so fatty I couldn't even chew it and 2) the owner was behind the counter screaming and swearing so loudly at an employee (who he fired in front of everyone) that no one could possibly enjoy their meal. Everyone just exchanged "can you believe this?" looks.
GreatAll I can say if you've ever had a real cheesesteak, then you'll appreciate what this place has to offer. It is the best I've had outside of philly. The staff is friendly, the place is clean. I will definatly be back.
almost like being homeI grew up in Philly, and I gotta tell ya, these steaks are the real deal. Go now! You'll be glad you did. It's a bit pricey for what it is, but it's money well spent.
A Philadelphia Native Says "Not so Great"As a Philly girl with lots of cheesesteak tasting under her belt, 99 miles to Philly does not compare. The steaks are just too greasy. By the time they were delivered, they were literally wet. The Provolone was chunky and not smooth like Pat's, Geno's or Jim's famous style. The role was also thin and not able to absorb the grease. My advice is to spend some real time in Philly learning from the experts!
not a philly cheesesteakIt was ok. But it is not the same as a philly cheesesteak; the steak was too chopped up, and it was small.
Slightly Better than DecentUnless you're going to hop in a car or on a train then this is your best bet for finding a good cheesesteak outside of Philly. While I agree it's nothing stellar, it at least tries to get the job done. I have family from Philly and have spent a lot of time at both Pat's & Geno's. This place serves up the best thing you'll get in the City...remember, the name is 99 Miles to Philly; not "Just Like Being in Philly."
cheesteak sliderstasty steak, but WHY SO SMALL? Granted I ate @ the bleeker st location, but it was more of a cheesesteak-slider or appetizer than a steak sandwich. Much farther than 99 miles from philly.. go uptown to carls
AddictiveThis place is addictive. I used to go to there 3rd Ave store, but they just opened a new spot on Bleecker Street which delivers to me. This could be a problem for me at 250lbs, I'm finding myself ordering 2 to 3 times a week. Like I said addictive, and filling Steak with Provolone, onions, and Mushrooms with a side of rings fills me up. Delivery time is usually quick within 30 minutes. I highly reccommend this place.
Great drunk food, BEST waffle fries!My friends and I love to eat at 99 miles all the time - sober, drunk, whatever. Their cheesesteaks are tasty and huge (i can usually only eat half) and their waffle fries are amazing. The food is made pretty fast, so it's perfect for takeout, and they stay open late on weekends so it's a great place to go after the bars let out.
Least Greasy Philly Cheese in NYCI really like that the phillysteaks at 99 miles to Philly are not greasy. Carls is good too-and the rightful pioneer but they are too greasy.
BEST CHEESESTEAKS AWAY FROM PHILLY99 Miles is so delicious. If you're drunk, sober, out with kids, or just want home food, the cheesesteaks and waffle fries are done to perfection. They also have Tastycakes, so you can really have a Philly experience. Obviously, I love the place.
Moving, and I'll miss them when I'm gone.99 Miles to Philly has great Cheesesteaks! Sure, they're a little on the smaller side, but I don't mind paying for quality instead of quantity. They have the perfect amount of meat to cheese to bread ratio. They're still plenty big enough when you order them with fries. Which also happen to be awesome. I make a point of going there anytime I'm within 1 mile of the place. I will most certianly miss these cheesesteaks when I move back to Chicago where I can only get Italian beefs! Ramble on ramblers!!
One of the best places in NYCVery close to famous Pat's cheese steaks in philly 99 Miles is the best restaurant I've come across in NYC to get a really delicious cheese steak. The waffle fries are to die for as well. Enjoy!
Native Philadelphian has found her cheesesteak placeSo far out of all the other cheesesteak places in the city this is the best that I've had so far. Just like how they make them in Philly down to the roll. The waffle fries are great too and their open late night so if you're in the area definitely stop by for a great fix :)
Never again...out of both good taste and principle!This place seems more like worlds away from Philly (or NYC even!) than any distance that can possibly be measured in miles. I had a better cheesesteak in Lincoln, Nebraska once (apologies to anyone reading this who is from Lincoln. I just wouldn't have expected to get a decent cheesesteak there!).
Feels like PATSI went there with a bunch of my friends the spot is small but the foood was awesome man. You gotta wait like 6-7mins but its worth it. I would drive from nyc to philly to go have PATs. Since gas is high i would rather go to 99 miles
