Back in their hometown of Philadelphia, Big Al and his son, Adam, enjoyed authentic Philly Steak Sandwiches while watching the Phillies, Flyers, 76ers and Eagles play… Actually, they enjoyed them when they weren’t watching sports too… Naturally, when they arrived in Florida they went looking for that authentic Philly Steak Sandwich that they craved. Sadly, they couldn’t find anything that even came close to that juicy, tender steak sandwich that they loved from back home. Sure, lots of Florida restaurants claimed to have the real thing, but this father and son duo knew the difference.
With the idea of opening an authentic Philly Steak Sandwich shop, the two guys went back to Philadelphia and made arrangements to bring to Florida the finest rib-eye steaks and best steak rolls Philly had to offer. Once they put it all together, they knew they had a winner. And so Big Al’s Steaks was born – to share the authentic Philly Steak Sandwich experience with their Floridian Friends and Neighbors.
After much success, and many awards, Big Al and Adam decided to turn their authentic Philly Steak Sandwich shop concept into a Philadelphia Cheesesteak franchise. What differentiates a Big Al's Steaks franchise from other Cheesesteak franchises is the cleanliness of our stores, the real sliced ribeye steak (never chopped), and the real Philadelphia steak rolls which result in the only Authentic Philly Cheesesteak outside of Philadelphia, and the only Authentic Philly Cheesesteak Franchise anywhere.
