Best cheesesteaks without going to Philly. Have been going here since little, as well as the rest of my family. It's a must try local eatery.

Giant steaks and hoagies; great value. Sandwaiches are not always the same size, consistency or taste--need to get a handle on this.

Before they moved to their new location I never had a problem. I guess being the best sandwich shop in the area has gone to the owner's head.

A must try, if only for the size of the sandwiches.

Going here since I was little. So delicious. A must try for cheesesteaks and onion rings. I've had the same order for the past 10 years..... and don't plan on changing it any time soon!

I stopped by with my grandson to treat him to a Philly cheesesteak. My grandson was never in Philly before, but the staff were extremely patient and helpful. The sandwich was delicious and HUGE. I don't see how the taste could be beat any other place. Only issue? I wish they would get a larger place, but I will return.

You have got to try their cheesesteaks, they're loaded with meat and you usually can't finish it because it's so big. Prices may seem high for a sandwich shop but you definately get your money's worth

This is the best place for a cheese steak. I have been going to Pudge's for years! If your going to eat in on Friday night it is a small place and it gets crowded, but the service is really good and you get your food pretty fast for how crowded it gets. Take is a good idea for a Friday night.

I used to eat from here a couple times a month through work, and it was always good. Their sandwiches were big and filling. Prices are good also. Everyone in the office really loved their cheesestakes.

This is a hole-in-the-wall kind of place, but OMG their Cheese steaks are the best I've ever eaten! I'm not a big fan of those Pat's/Geno's Steaks. I just don't care for them. Pudge's is incredible. They are huge, cheap, and fill you up in a matter of a minute.

I usually take out their steaks because the place is so small and so busy. We order them for work too. One whole steak can feed three people.

The young girl who waitresses and a young guy who cooks have been lazy and rude on too many occasions, so I can't go to what used to be a weekly visit for me. I never minded how dirty and crowded Pudge's was because the food was good, but the young kids have been rude enough that I know go to Lee's in Norristown or Pudge's 2. Pudge's 1 has too much attitude these days, and its a shame!

Cons: Young girl and guy give attitude, wrong food, more attitude, or close early!

I dont know too many people that have been eating at Pudges as long as me. I used to live in Plymouth Valley. I was about 10 years old and I used to walk to a little Pizzeria right down the street called Pudges Pizza and even at that young age I liked their sandwiches best. I am somewhat older now Pudges has moved to Blue Bell and stopped making pizza but continues to make the absolute best cheessteak known to man. Dont forget to take home one of the greatest Italian Hoagies in existance.

I know there is a long standing debate about the *best* cheese steak in Philly. I'm not going to get into that...as a native Floridian, I don't really have the credentials. All I'm going to say is the gigantic and delicious cheese steaks at Pudge's are MY personal favorite.

Pudge's is a little hole in the wall dive on the side of strip mall on Dekalb Pike. It's old and kind of dingy but the staff is always smiling. But you better get there early if you coming in at lunch time because they fill up quick.

Oh, and don't order the full sized cheese steak or you'll need a table all to yourself just to hold your sandwich.

I have been going to Pudge's since I was little. My mom has worked their almost my whole life! I have never been able to find a cheesesteak that even comes close to this one! The person that said their rolls are 2 different sizes is crazy. The large is 18 inches the small is 12 inches! So unless you are ordering 2 different things you get what you pay for. So come in and try them out. You will not be disapointed! Tommy the cook makes the best cheesesteak ever!!!!! And the Hoagies are pretty darn good too:)

I lived in Blue bell for years and missed the steaks at Pudges since I moved to Elkins Park. I just found out that they just opened a store around the corner from me. If they are any bit as good as the original I will be there often.

Pudge's makes one of the best cheesesteaks in the area, bar none. However, there are a few caveats! Do not take out. For some reason, the size of the takeout cheese steak is half the size if you dine in. Dining in has its drawbacks as Pudge's is real hole; tables are old and crowded together, chairs are not the most comfortable. It's a real shame they don't update their restaurant or just move to a larger facility.

Cons: ambiance, take out, service

I grea up right accross the street from Pudges' and now living in lancaster county, my family and I STILL make a point to get a steak from Pudge's. Besides the amazing fact that they LOAD the steaks, they actually melt the cheese into the meat, making a perfect balance of meat and cheese melted together. I drool every time I think of their steaks. They use fresh, quality ingredients, so you won't find any unwanted surprises in your lunch. -and a trick to reheat your pudge, take it apart, reheat the meat and toast the roll-

I had my first cheesesteak from "Pudge" the other day. Heck of a drive from Philly (so much cars). I was curious all day that i was eating it. It was HUGE, but what kind of beef was that? It was stringy and tuff. It was just average. Im not sure if it was worth the trip to get a cheesesteak.

best cheesesteak outside of philly and better than the namesakes - jims, pats, genos, etc. bring a friend because the sandwiches are huge. folks around the country have even had pudge's cheesesteaks fedxed to them they love it so much. a big miss it's not usually on the best cheesesteak in philadelphia magazine's annual list.

Pros: enormous sandwiches

If you live close to Blue Bell, PA, then it's worth the trip to get cheesesteak. If you live on the other side of the bridge (NJ) then forget it (traffic will kill ya). These are ordinary cheesesteak, and the only reason i would come back is because the size are enormous...that's a plus.

I grew up on Pudge's, and while I grant it's A LOT OF CHEESESTEAK FOR YOUR BUCK, it's relatively bland. GOD FORBID you should get one with sauce to go, because even in-house, the juice (grease) will soak your roll to falling-apart within a minute.

Words cannot describe...simply the best in the country. Don't buy into the hype of the "other" guys downtown, the best steaks are in this unassuming little place in Blue Bell. Little known fact: The reason US Healthcare (now Aetna) put their headquarters in the Philly area was because one of the founders was a HUGE Pudge's fan! Give it a try and you will understand.
