Philly Steak Subs opened in the early 70s as B.J. Munchies, and quickly built up a large following. Down the line the name changed to Philly Steak Subs. In 2002, Elias Totah, who had 45 years of experience in the restaurant business, purchased the shop. After he retired, his son, Ronnie, who has over 20 years of catering, food service and restaurant management experience, took over. He added a deli counter, increased the sandwich portion size, added fresh salsa to the menu, and added more space. Elias is now retired, but still comes into the shop for a few hours almost every day. The Totah family has been active in the food service business in San Diego for many years, and were actively involved in the legalizing of lunch trucks in San Diego in 1984.
The shop is intimate, with pub-style seating inside and tables outside. The kitchen/cooking area is right in front of the shop and you can watch your sandwich being prepared. In addition to the dine-in and take-out options, Philly Steak Subs also does catering and special event parties.
