The sandwiches are great and the menu has a lot more to offer too. Hoagies, pizzas, grinders, calzones, sides and more! I'm working nearby temporarily and will be back tomorrow! It was clean inside too.

The cheese steaks are fresh and heavy you can also go online on their wesbite and get a coupon. The delivery of the food was fast and they even brought over napkins and played without asking!

After an okay experience with a cheesesteak from another spot, we decided to try Philadelphia Cheesesteak Factory. Right off the bat, I knew I would like this place because the first Community question was "Does this place use cheez whiz for the sandwiches?" and the answer is YES. I know not everyone understands this but give whiz wi ... read more

Alright, cyber bullies, Emilie is here to give the lady at the counter some praise since you all are total douche tools.

I've been to most of the big cheesestake places in Philly; Jim's, Pat's, Geno's, and Ishkabibbles. Considering this place was in NOVA, it was pretty good! The bread is perfect, the place feels authentic, and the service is fast. However, if you get cheese wiz they just pump it on top of the cheesestake and then when you eat it, you j ... read more

Pretty good overall, but I think it's a wee pricey for the portions and cuisine. The cheesesteak tasted pretty good, but my roll was a little soggy. Wish it came with some fries for the price. But it was a decent meal. Delivery took a little while, but wasn't awful. It was a pretty okay experience.

People are haters, I LOVE this place! I work up the street and they take care of me. When I was renovating they would even call before they turned off the grill to see if I needed anything.

I live close to PCF and love cheesesteaks so was excited to try this. Noticing they had like a ton of pizza on the menu, we ordered a cheeseburger pizza and two cheesesteaks.

For my money, the best cheesesteak in the DAV (District and Virginia, heh).  Believe me, I've tried to find a better one in the area (including Del Ray and every "pizza" place in the area), but none compares.  Is it as good as the ones in Philly?  Mo, but this is NoVA and we will take what we can get when it comes to regional America ... read more

IT's not a bad substitute for the real thing
Look if you are from Philly this place won't compare. My dad is Philly born and bred and all I have heard since I was a child is that you can't find good cheesesteaks or hoagies outside of the city. I was hoping this place might be a contender, however I can't say this place is wonderful. I think the cheesesteak I had was good and th ... read more

We ordered from here trying to find a decent pizza spot that wasn't super expensive. The wings were small, not worth the money you spend for it. The ordering online system is kind of funky. The pizza was $9.99 but it's a $2.00 for each additional topping. It's a typical NY style pizza. We had a sausage and mushroom pizza. It took ove ... read more

Being from Philadelphia, everywhere I travel or move, I try to find a legit cheesesteak. This one was pretty standard Philly cheesesteak. I usually get American wit and wiz on the side to dip it in.

It's actually a pretty decent quick take-out place. I like to get Provolone on my fries instead of Whiz, they comply with my requests all the time and it's always melted just right. The burgers and steaks are pretty good, and the fries are also good, large steak fries type which always goes well with provolone. Having been born an ... read more

For fast food, this is a good option.  Been here a number of times because it's close to work.  Service has always been prompt.  I'm no expert on cheese steak, but they make it better than I would have done it.  Not as greasy as the famous Geno's in Philadelphia.
