Now I'm hungry! But I'm not driving 3 hours to Philly for one. ;)

I love Chicago's version of a Philly cheesesteak, can only dream of tasting an original. That looks awesome!

"Best cheesesteak in Philly" is a serious question and provokes loud arguments.

Here's an interesting ranking based on meta-analysis of the bazillion (OK, 49) lists ranking Philly cheeseteaks. I concur with the #1 ranking of Jim's.


I enjoys me a good Philly cheesesteak ("wiz wit"), but am more enjoying roast pork with provolone and long hots.

THIS is EXACTLY what a cheesesteak is supposed to be. I’m currently in an area where they think it’s ok to use provolone…🤮

Provolone is one of the 4 acceptable cheese orders. Your choices are: None, Whiz, Provolone, or American.

God help you if ask for cheddar.

I’m sure you are correct, and I’m not even from the Philly area. I just know that nothing tastes better than American on a well made cheesesteak. I will die on that hill. 😂

You can get good cheese steaks pretty much everywhere here, so top ten lists are kind of ridiculous to me. Still, I haven't had one in a while. I should do something about that.

Thinly sliced beef with onions, fried, then dumped into a long roll, with melted cheese or without it. One of the world's greatest foods for having a few beers with.
