Disappointed – Had the Philly Cheesesteak with peppers and the Philly Cheesesteak Supreme, both with hot peppers. The hot peppers had a bitterness to them. The bread was not fresh. While there was plenty of meat the flavor and quality fell short.
Get your cheesesteaks here! – We have eaten here a few times and find the owners always very friendly. They are especially nice to the kids who get a cool "bendy guy" when they go. The food was been great every time. We have had the Philly Steak, the pizza steak and their very delicious portabella sub. Totally satifies all of our Philly Cheesesteak cravings.
Dont waste your time! – The meat was dry & had absolutely had no flavor! The owner (wife) then offered me pasta salad or chips but then told me I would have to pay for whatever I chose! No chips, no pickle just a dried out sandwich! This is a poor substitute for a Philly cheesesteak....then they dont even offer the wiz, which is what makes a Philly Cheesesteak! The owners were crass and had no personality with a "I dont care what you think" attitude. I will discourage anyone from going to this place. Not a welcoming atmosphere!
Finally, a great Philly Steak Sandwich (outside of Philly) – I rarely write reviews because creating accounts and getting spam is a pain. But after eating at Anvil's I just had to spread the word.
I grew up in Philly and eating at Pat's in South Philly was a part of my up-bringing. I later moved on to Jim's Steaks on South Street as my favorite steak place.
I left Philly in 1983, I have lived in several parts of the country, and have traveled widely, but I have never found a steak sandwich that tasted like an authentic Philly.
Until a few weeks ago when I discovered Anvils, just 5 minutes from my house!!!
This is the real deal.
If you're from Philly, try this place.
If you've never had a real Philly steak sandwich, try this place.
Delicious sandwich! I had the cheese steak with prov and onions and the flavor was awesome. The bread is delicious, fresh and warm.
Everyone needs to give them a try:)
"The Real Thing" – Just enjoyed the best cheesesteak I have had in a long time. I miss the real thing from Philly but this is real close. Great flavor, grilled onions, sauce, just like Philly.
They also have Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer which is awesome. Family run place and real friendly. It is in the same shopping center as Barry's Cafe which makes the best Burger in the area. Well worth the drive!
Great Cheesesteaks – We are from Philadelphia and always searching for a good cheesesteak. Finally there is one in Cary! Excellent cheesesteak. The homemade sauce is wonderful. Friendly people, excellent service.....we will become regulars.
Great Cheesesteaks! – Went to Anvil's for the first time and will definitely go back! The mushroom cheesesteak was hot and delicious. My friend had grilled chicken with fresh spinach and loved it.
