Over 30 years Of Bringing Philly To Hampton Roads

Over 30 years Of Bringing Philly To Hampton Roads

Our Story

We’re from Philadelphia. We know cheesesteaks. For over 32 years “That place on Tidewater” has brought you the best cheesesteak you can find in Hampton Roads. Period.

The History

Our aim is to bring a little piece of Philly to the residents of Tidewater. We strive to sell the best product possible, at a price that is fair to both our customers, as well as us. We cut corners on everything, except the quality of the food and how we handle it. Some might use less meat or a cheaper grade to offset the cost. We don’t and never will. 2015 is our 32nd year in business. Thank you for letting us serve you for the past 30+ years. It’s been hard work, but fun and we hope to continue to bring a little taste of Philly to you.

Each sandwich is prepared to order. This, at times, creates a wait, but we think it is well worth it. Who else cooks a whole turkey to make their turkey subs?

2015 is our 32nd year in business. 2013 marked Carrie’s 30th year with us, but, unfortunately, health issues forced her to leave us. She is sorely missed. Martha was our next “30 year girl.” She was with us at the beginning and is doing a great job keeping the place going . 2015 is also the 26th year for Chris, who along with her sons, Marques, 17 years of dedicated service, and Marvan, 17 years off and on (mostly on) have worked their butts off to make this place great. Ava reached her 21st year with us. She has never turned us down when asked to pull an extra shift. Tamika is back running our night shift.

I cannot fail to mention some others who put in years with us, but have moved on to bigger and better things: Donnie, Vanessa, C.J., Dennis, Pam, Scott (Martha’s hubby), Bonnie, Janey and her family (we hired them out of the customer line our first busy day), Rashaad, Julius, Detric, and many more. Thanks to all who have helped make it work.
