Steak N Fries will satiate hungry palates yearning for authentic Philly-style cheesesteak. Hailing from the City of Brotherly Love, owner Angel Pagan’s mission is to bring cheesesteaks — and a slice of Philadelphia — to San Diego.

“This is our first [restaurant], my wife and I,” said Pagan, who’s observing his two-year anniversary at 1039 Garnet Ave. “We were thinking of doing it in New York or Philadelphia, but the market there is saturated. We decided on PB because we like the location along the beach. There were a few (cheesesteak places) here already. But we thought we could come out and have it be a little unique.”

Pagan likes where he’s at.

“We get some pretty good lunch business in the daytime, dinner business and late-night,” he said. 

Philadelphia memorabilia, lots of sports teams as well as the iconic Liberty Bell, grace Steak N Fries’ walls.

“We want people to come in and not just buy cheesesteaks from us and fries, we want them to come in and have an experience,” said Angel of his family-owned business. “We’ve had guys come in here and say, ‘I thought I was in South Philly for a second.’”

What sets his sandwiches apart?

“The ribeye is fresh and we slice it in-house daily,” answered Pagan. “No one else has that. That's what separates us. When you order it: We make it. And we use rolls from Philadelphia.” 

And cheesesteak is exactly what you’ll get at Steak N Fries. Along with chips and sodas, patrons can select from steak, cheesesteak, loaded cheesesteak, pizza steak, chicken cheesesteak, grilled cheese, steak n fries, chicken n fries, fries and cheese fries costing $4 to $13.

In naming his eatery, Pagan tried a bunch of permutations of names referring to his family or his native city, before settling on the mainstay of what he serves.

Steak N Fries opens at 11 a.m. every morning, seven days a week, and doesn’t close until midnight. 

Angel praised the loyalty of his customers, whom he said come from all over. “That’s what’s making us successful,” he said. “We have support from locals, the military and colleges around here. We have support from tourists.”

It doesn’t hurt that there are pubs nearby on Garnet that cater to Philly sports teams.

“We get a lot of people from the tri-state area, Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York all the way up to New England — Boston, Connecticut,” Pagan said.

Pagan added: “I just want to thank everyone for their support, and accepting us into their community as a business. We’re looking forward to being here for a long time.”

Cure for HSV with doctor Ahmed Herbal roots

Most fake doctors on the internet will claim they have cure for Herpes virus, when you contact them they will end up demanding money from you. I was once a victim of such scam, because I was really curious of finding the cure to my Herpes Virus. A good friend of mine introduced me to a doctor named Ahmed Usman that the doctor cured him from diabetes, at first I refused to contact the doctor because of my past experience. Later that they when surfing the internet I came across a testimony of a young lady who was cured from HSV-1 with the-same doctor Ahmed, so I decided to give the doctor a try, I contacted him and after much deliberation he prepared the Herbal medicine which I paid for and he sent it to me and after receiving it he prescribed the usage for 21 days that I will be cured. Truly after using the Herbal medicine for 21 days I discovered that there was improvement on my health and the outbreaks I used to have were gone I decided to go for another test and my result was negative the doctors were surprised there was no trace of the virus on my blood, you too can be cured with this doctor, email him on; text/Call 2348064460510  He has cure for Diabetes, Cancer and Liver diseases.
