I read a previous reviewer's slam and had to respond. This place is awesome! The sandwiches are huge and priced reasonably. I recommend the cheese steak with provolone and fried onions. It is a long roll stuffed and I mean overflowing with quality meat, seasoned perfectly from the hot grill. It is enormous and delicious! There is not a whole lot of atmosphere or alot of room in the place at all. However the deli guys are nice and the rest of the staff is helpful. It is a true hidden gem and hope it stays that way! Top three in Philly for sure.

First off, I'm a cheesesteak conniseur and I have eaten at over 20 places known for their cheesteaks. I also love good cheesesteaks as I am 6'3, 265lbs lol Anyway, I ventured to try this little deli in a tiny stripmall in Philadelphia and it was hands down, one of the worst cheesesteaks I have ever eaten! The meat was bland and there was too much of it. Bottom Line is that I have tried this once, I don't recommend it but can recommend other places that have quality cheeseteaks like 1) John's Roast Pork, 2) Talk of the Town, 3) Tony Luke's, 4) Phil's Steaks on Passayunk, 5) place on Oxford/Cottman, across from Dunkin Donuts

I was working in Baldino's Italian Restaurant in Tequesta Florida, when I found out about Gooey Looie's. With in three months I had moved back to philadelphia, so i figured i would check it out. Let me tell you, you get your moneys worth. and tasty at that. the place is tiny and the people do have that south philly thing going on, but who cares im there for the food. in short you should goand go again.

Ok this will be my first review every written and the spell checker is off. I read to reviews about Gooey Looies and can’t agree more, the sandwiches are to die for. I have never had a bad sandwich from them. Now as far as customer service goes sometimes you get what you give and really who cares about the cook’s attitude, besides he is behind a hot grill all day not to mention the summer time. They have rules like the soup Nazi, you can’t be on your cell phone when at the counter to place an order, I bet the person who complained about the service was running their mouth on their cell phone at the time, just a reach but I'm sure I'm right. South Philly does have a certain tude to it and you either like or dislike it. I can tell you that after a couple of visits over several years the cooks know my name when I call my order in over the phone and during my top 10min visit I feel very welcome and will always return! I wish I could own a business just like this on day, GL keep up the good work! For all out of the out of Towner you must visit this place if you really want a good steak please don’t make the mistake everyone else does and visits the more advertised butcher shops, I will not mentioned any names. I have to go now I just made myself hungry and need to order me a sandwich and visit the folks at GL's Regards, VING

This place is sheltered in a small shopping mall, entering the store it looks like your topical south philly deli.. The food is adv. but you get a lot of it, they put no love into the sandwiches or their customers. The guy making the sandwiches looks as if he hates life and his job. He acts as if your putting him to work when ordering , rushing you order and gives a major attitude to the customers. when dealing with the pubic you should always keep it professional and give a smile, let people feel comfortable and at home. Why would you really want to order food from a place where you feel as if you are bugging the people making your food by placing a order? Like I said food is OK, its well worth it's money.. That's if you want to feel like a victim when placing a order!

This is THE place to go for a steak or sub in Philadelphia. No, it's not the spiffiest place, but what it lacks in neon signage or fresh paint, it makes up for with gut busting sandwiches and a taste of South Philly "charm". $7 gets you a jumbo, which you can easily divvy into 2 or 3 sandwiches. Definitely order extra cheese because it'll get lost in all that meat. My only complaint is they don't have wiz but provolone will do in a jiff. To the guy complaining about the service: This is South Philly. The attytood is part of the experience.
