Tastes of Philly Finally Arrives to the Queen City

More than just a steak sandwich, the Philly Steak is a delicacy and a way of life in Philadelphia. Now, that authentic Philly steak flavor has come to downtown Cincinnati through the new restaurant Balboa's Philly Steaks and Pizza located at 628 Vine Street.

Importing all of its bread and meat directly from Philadelphia, Balboa's uses tender seasoned top loin steak and authentic Amoroso rolls to create an authentic Philly steak sandwich. Customers have the option of fresh veggies including green peppers, onions, banana peppers or mushrooms, as well as provolone, American, or Cheese Whiz –the cheese of choice for the original Philly steak sandwich.

Balboa's also offers thin East Coast style pizza, made fresh daily with only the best dough, mozzarella and provolone cheeses, and specially blended seasoned pizza sauce.

"Our crust is baked perfectly for a thin pizza texture that people across the east coast love to fold and eat," say Balboa's staff. "Now, Cincinnatians can enjoy this same pizza! Grab a slice or two for lunch, or a whole pie for the entire office."

Customers can experience Philadelphia flavor once more through TastyKakes, also imported directly from the factory's Philadelphia bakery. These single serving size deserts are packed with rich taste and freshness.

"There's a TastyKake flavor for everyone. Whether it's butterscotch crumpets, KandyKakes, or Lemon Pieces –there is no better way to top off a real Philly meal."

Balboa's Philly Steaks and Pizza is located at 628 Vine Street in downtown Cincinnati (this space was formerly Dink's restaurant.) Hours are Mondays through Fridays, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Thursdays through Saturdays, 8:00 p.m. to 4:00 a.m. Philly steak sandwich prices range from $4.99-7.99 and pizza prices range from $2.29 a slice to $12.99 for an 18" pie.

There was no toilet paper, no paper towels, and no lock on the female restroom. No one wore gloves or hair nets. Unauthorized personnel was allowed to go behind the counter, at which time said person's cell phone fell in the pizza platter. This food was not thrown out. One of the cook's shirt touched every bun that went on the grill as he leaned over to reach the back of the grill. One bun was fallin off the grill, at which time he forced it back on with his stomach. We asked for a refund and was cursed at by the owner's son ( the cook who was touching the food with his shirt). We then were asked if we wanted to take it out to the stree.
