LA Weekly's Description

Is Philly West Bar & Grill on Westwood Boulevard responsible for the overall lack of great Philly cheesesteaks in Los Angeles? Perhaps.

    It’s not fancy, but it doesn’t need to be - with Eagles, Phillies, and Penn memorabilia on the walls, the Eagles on the sets, and a juicy cheesesteak, it’s a little slice of home.
