Damn. Damn. Damn.
We say a fond goodbye to Phi-lly Cheese Steaks & Things. The restaurant was located at 1050 Riverside Drive at the former site of Fender’s Restaurant and Rax.
We reviewed the restaurant here on SouthsideCentral and it was a terrific place to eat. The main problem was that the restaurant was in a bad location on Riverside Drive. There was almost no chance for people to impulsively stop into there for a meal because the restaurant was hard to see and they didn’t have great name recognition.
The owners did a lot to try to attract customers. They simplified the menu, dropped some prices and even went to $5 cheesesteak sandwiches for a three-month period. It just wasn’t enough.
I’m gonna miss this place.
