Sonny’s Famous Steaks
The late-night cheesesteak shop in Philly’s Old City neighborhood
What Pat’s, Geno’s and Tony Luke’s are to South Philly, Sonny’s Famous Steaks is to Old City.
Sonny’s, located just steps from the Liberty Bell and National Constitution Center, offers a quintessential Philly cheesesteak experience. In fact, GQ ranked Sonny’s the No. 1 Best Cheesesteak in Philadelphia in 2014.
With Angus beef sliced in-house daily, Amoroso rolls and all fresh ingredients, Sonny’s serves up cheesesteaks of all sorts, rib-eye burgers, cheese fries and onion rings to residents, visitors and partyers who need to fuel up before going down for the night. (The restaurant is open until 3 a.m. on weekends.)
With a friendly demeanor, Sonny’s welcomes newcomers and is eager to teach folks everything and anything about cheesesteaks — from ordering to history. Happy to serve large groups and easy to get to by foot, cab or subway (SEPTA 2nd Street Station is nearby), Sonny’s delights tourists and locals alike.
