Each cheesesteak is prepared to order. First we slice fresh rib-eye beef in house daily. Then, without adding oil, we cook the beef in its own natural juices. We combine local cheese (or wiz) and toppings. The sandwich is placed in a fresh Amoroso roll (delivered daily), wrapped, and ready to go. Because we use top quality fresh ingredients — and now offer gluten free cheesesteaks rolls — some say we serve “healthy cheesesteaks.” We simply say we serve delicious cheesesteaks. Check out our menu.
Only Blocks from the Liberty Bell!
Philly’s official tourism site, VisitPhilly.com, awarded Sonny’s number one on its “Top Places for Lunch Near the Liberty Bell” list. Why? Delicious cheesesteaks near the Liberty Bell — why else? We’re located in Old City — the heart of Philadelphia — only a six minute walk from The Liberty Bell! Check the map above or click here. Also nearby are the National Constitution Center, Independence Hall, and other attractions. Check out our location page for more travel info or if you need a hotel, our friends got ya covered!
Best Cheesesteak Awards!
We’re recognized locally and nationally as one of the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia! GQ Magazine’s food critic Alan Richman taste-tested all the big-name cheesesteak shops only to proclaim Sonny’s, “The best cheesesteak in town!” U.S. News & World Report featured Sonny’s in, “The 5 Best Cheesesteak Shops in Philadelphia.” Locally, The Inquirer places us on their list of top cheesesteaks. We’ve been discussed and praised in Forbes. Foodies will appreciate Sonny’s appearance in blogs such as Serious Eats and Eater.
Late Night Food on Weekends!
After a night on the town in Old City or Center City, you get hungry. Unfortunately, your choices are limited when the bars close at 2 am. Don’t worry –- we got you covered. Sonny’s is open late. We serve our entire menu from the Pizza Steak to the Bacon Bleu Cheeseburger until 3 am every weekend! So stop by –– we’re happy to have you!
We Host Groups Visiting Philly!

to Our City
We grew up in Philly and we love this place. So, when people come from out of town to visit, we take pride in all Philly has to offer. For our part, we even help them order to make sure they have a delicious sandwich. We even offer school group specials. Behind the scenes, we get involved with the community. Growing up in Philly, this is a dream come true – we love the community, welcome others to it, and give back as often as we can.
