Direct From Philly (Deerfield Beach)
*****. Direct From Philly, 1201 South Military Trail, Deerfield Beach, Florida 33442, (954) 428-7035.
Got something absolutely terrific for you guys into- Philly chicken and steak- cheesesteak subs…Direct From Philly in Deerfield Beach.
The story in a nutshell…
Direct From Philly- located in a Chevron Gas Station convience store- makes some of the most delicious Philly chicken and steak- cheesesteak subs that you have ever eaten (well, at least- that Jeff Eats has ever eaten!). Order/pickup at the counter. The joint’s menu- chicken/steak- cheesesteak subs and hand-cut French fries! Handful of counter seats!
Jeff Eats first told you guys about Direct from Philly on 10/6/10. Since that date, Direct From Philly has basically been a wandering nomad, opening and closing in various South Florida locations. Anyway, something like 4-weeks ago, Direct From Philly returned to its original Deerfield Beach “cool-like you gotta be in the know” Chevron gas station- and is back pumping out (pun intended!) amazing-delicious chicken/steak- cheesesteak subs!
Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats stopped in yesterday for “lunch” doing chicken/steak- cheesesteak subs and French fries- and I am telling you- absolute dynamite!
Direct From Philly is open 10:30am-7:30pm 7 days a week.

I am now going to tell you guys about an absolutely terrific sub joint…Direct From Philly, which is located in Deerfield Beach. Nothing for nothing, I guarantee you, that unless I told you about Direct From Philly, in 100 years, you’d never-ever find it. This joint is located in a Chevron Gas Station.
Check Direct From Philly’s website www.directfromphilly.com for menu/prices.
But, I digress–don’t really have time to go into detail…suffice it to say–there are two rival subs shops in Philadelphia that for years have battled it out, as to who makes the best Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich…namely Pat’s King of Steaks www.patskingofsteaks.com and Geno’s Steaks www.genosteaks.com. If you GOOGLE these guys you will find tons of articles about the “battle.” I have eaten at both and both joints make a great Philly cheese-steak sandwich.
Anyway…Direct From Philly in addition to a load of breakfast sandwiches, salads, hot-cold subs—does a great job- in shall we say, replicating the sandwiches that Pat’s makes and that Geno’s makes…I tried both of Direct Philly’s “versions” and they were absolutely delicious. As good as the originals? A very-very close call. I think the only difference between the sandwiches that Direct From Philly makes and those that Pat’s and Geno’s serve-up- is what we call ambiance…not much ambiance eating in your car at a Chevron Gas Station…
You now know about a tremendous sub joint.
Direct From Philly is open Monday-Friday 7am-7pm and Saturday 8am-7pm. The joint is closed on Sunday.
