Carl's steaks are amazing. I am not even big on red meat or beef in general, and after I tried their cheese steak a year ago, I am ADDICTED. It is like a drug, and I often crave it. It is like those late night cravings for White Castle, or

Unbelievably rude staff. The sandwiches aren't that good - alot of bread, few choices and most of the time the people that work there act like they're doing you a favor. Don't be surprised if you can't call in an order because they often

Pros: great cheesesteak

2 1/2 hours for a cheesesteak sandwich. Called after an hour and they said it just left. It doesn't take 1 1/2 hours to deliver. INSANE!!!!!
They don't care about the customer.

Cheesesteak is great, which is why I have ordered there in the past. The past five times I have, the people are horrible. I put in an order thru the website, and 15 minutes after the delivery time they call saying they just got the order

Delicious cheesesteaks! I'm a big cheesesteak lover and this is one of the best places to find them in the city. Not expensive and they get you in and out the door quickly. Fries are so-so and don't travel well if you're getting delivery.

After placing a delivery order, waiting an hour, calling to check the status, a staff member literally barked at me that the order had left and hung up on me.

The food is good here, but for whatever reason, the staff treats customers like

Being a native Philadelphia I don??t take this review lightly. I routinely travel and stop for lunch looking for god cheese steaks. Well a client of mine recommended Carl??s and said it is one of the best around and inside I said I will judge for myself.

The Cheese steak does rival a Pat??s cheese steak in Philadelphia. It had ample amount of meat. The roll is not south and not to hard and big enough. They give you a variety of cheese options and a good amount of fixens. I would highly recommend if you are in the NYC are at 3rd and 34th it is well worth the visit and better than most I have eaten in my travels outside of Philly.

It is really not a dinning place more a pick up and run; order get your number and git .

I don't know if theres anything better than a cheesesteak from Carl's @ 4:30am after bar hopping. These things are delicious... the line is out of the door usually after last call. You can choose types of cheese- true Phillie-goers usually

Pros: Amazing cheesesteaks!!! Choice of onion or no onions/few types of cheeses

Cons: If your health conscious this may not be the best place for you!

I live above this mouth watering place that the drunk crowd flocks to, but I have to say that the chicken cheesteaks are below average. They are famous for keeping pre-cooked chicken in a metal bin for hours at a time. i have never seen

Cons: sometimes they get mixed up, but they are apologetic and make it right!

Make no mistake, Carl's has the best Philly cheese steak in NYC. If you are into Jim's of South Street in Philly, this is as close as you are going to get in the big apple. Sometimes I sit around just dreaming of my next Carl's cheese

These cheesesteaks are made the way the were supposed to be made: sloppy, greasy, tasty, and with tons of meat. Carl's does a killer job of replicating Philly steaks, and offers both Wiz and provolone. The fries are not half bad as well.

Pros: Cheesesteak, fries

Cons: You smell if you spend too much time in there

SO. I'm from Philly. I've eaten tons of my share of steaks from Pat's, Geno's, and Jim's (which, quite frankly, is terrible.) But really the best steaks ever are at a tiny place in Manayunk and i can't remember the name. ANYWAY.

Pros: good sandwich, good price

This may be the best in NYC but Philly has nothing to worry about. I had the opportunity to try this place 3 times and each time came away with the same thoughts, the meat was too dry and there was no flavor. I did notice this last visit

These New Yorkers have been fooled to think this is what a cheesesteak is suppose to taste like. I've had way better at a place in Atlanta, GA. Go to philly for the real thing.. the only thing that carl has gotten right is the bread

Philly Cheesesteaks are hard to replicate. So far, I've sampled each and every cheesesteak place in NYC, and I've got to say that this is as close as it gets. Problem is that unless there is a crowd, the meat sits out too long. By too

Pros: Cheap, Filling, Location

Cons: Closes early weeknite, Limited Seating

Not even close to Philly cheesesteaks! They aren't horrible, but they let the meat sit too long and it congeals. My main issue is that they are WAY too salty. The bread is good, though. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here unless I

Carl's makes a decent steak sandwich. Nothing to write home about. Steve in Tudor is high to say it's better then Philly. The meat is too dry, they have a huge pile of meat on the grill and wedge you off a slab when you order. It's

Pros: Decent Sandwich, good fries, free refills

Cons: , could be cheaper, a little dry

.

While Carl's sandwiches may look like a Philly cheesesteak, nothing about it tastes anything like one except for maybe the bread. The meat is subpar and dry, the onions are too large and overcooked, and they are skimpy on the cheese wiz.

We've got it better than Philly. Our NYC Carl's is better than can be found in Philadelphia--plus, our's is friendly and helpful. Delivery service great.
I've lived in Philly and Wash, DC (where there are some cheesesteak outposts),

Best place to get something to eat that is filling after you have spent all your money drinking! The steaks arrive fast and hot! Service is fast and employees are very cool cats! You may even meet some girls that actually like to eat!

NYC finally has a solid cheesesteak (B&B is good but not the real thing). Carl's does its best to crank them out in the traditional Philly style, with soft rolls, cheese whiz and onions.
