Ms. Bernadette Acuña, the co-owner of this place and together with her sister based in Philadelphia are the brains behind RBY’s Steak and Shake. “We want our customers to feel Philly through the food we serve, the same quality of cheese steaks you will get in Philadelphia” – says Ms. Bernadette. Some of their ingredients were flown in from where her sister lives and their suppliers were meticulously chosen to conform to their gastronomic scheme.

Let’s now tickle your sweet tooth fancy. RBY’s Steak and Shake has a roster of the best desserts; their strawberry cheesecake has an authentic cheesecake taste. The thing with cheesecakes is that our palate easily gets tired of it - some may be too sweet or too creamy. But RBY’s Steak and Shake versions are truly great with just the right amount of creaminess and subtle sweetness to make you want for more.

Each and every pasta dish is served with al dente pasta; Bernadette looks into the kitchen operation personally to make sure that the quality is consistent in every serving. The Penne Vodka is sausage and herbs galore tossed in penne pasta with cream and a hint of vodka. Don’t worry about the vodka, the spirit has well been taken cared of so you don’t need to worry about being drunk. The vodka however adds a distinct strong flavor that is both interesting and nice on the palate.
