I like mayo on beef sandwiches, including what we get for local "steak and cheese" grinders. I've not yet had the pleasure of a true philly cheesesteak - my first one I promise will be as they make it, but I reserve the right to add mayo for future sandwiches if I so desire.

I don't put mayo on anything. I will occasionally put ketchup on a cheesesteak, but that's only if it's not very good, but I'd rather have A-1.

For me, the Philly cheesesteak is perfect as it is, and mayo truly does not seem to belong.
 
But we have always used either mayo or ketchup on cold leftover roast beef, depending on mood.  The delicious sandwiches later are after a pot roast dinner are a bonus for us.  Sliced beef, salt & pepper, and the condiment, simple and delish.
 
But after the mention of roast beef po' boys , I had to google around for some pictures, and now I've gotta have it!

You purists are killin' me.
I once stood behind a old blue haired Jewish woman who ordered a corned beef on rye with mayo and lettuce.  Another time a buddy of mine ordered a cheesesteak and put mustard on it.  A local Chicago dog place won't give you access to the condiments.  It's their way or the highway.   kakakakaakaakakakakaka

Foodbme:

Interesting that the original Philly didn't even come with cheese, and even when they started adding cheese, it was provolone. From what I understand from people I know from Philly, it's not considered a "real" cheesesteak these days without the Cheez Whiz.

Which reveals the problem with being a food purist: a new dish is created, than others put their own stamp on it, it evolves, and eventually, the accepted — heck, the "pure" version — bears no resemblance to the original creation.

Which is fine with me. If I ever get to Philly, I plan to get a "real" Philly cheesesteak. I may even try one with Whiz and one with provolone. And no, I won't add anything else to it. But in my hot dog vending days (here in Florida), I actually had customers from Chicago berating other customers for putting ketchup on their hot dogs. That's just wrong, in my book.

What's wrong? Berating Customers or putting Ketchup on a Hot Dog???

When it comes right down to it, if you want mayo on your cheese steak that's fine.  If you want ketchup on your hot dog that's fine as well.
What the heck, people look at me funny when I put salt on my watermelon and apple butter on my scrapple

Putting Salt on fruit is not unusual. Many Mexicans put seasonings containing salt on their fruit regularly. So Do I.
If you're in Tucson, AZ you'll see it everywhere.

If you handed one to me at the moment I'd say thank you and consume it immediately.
 
I'd prefer it without the catsup if you're thinking about it.

While I'd sooner eat worms than have mayonnaise on a cheesesteak, I have been known to put salt on cantaloupe and sugar on tomatoes.

I ate many cheesesteaks during my five years in New Castle and Wilmington. I don't know whether it was a counter person or a friend, but at some point I was shown The Way. Provolone, onions, little ketchup and hot peppers.
Plenty of creaminess from melty cheese mixed with beef fat. The idea of mayo mixed in there makes me queasy.

I had never had a cheesesteak or even knew what one was when I first started to travel in the Phila. area in 1978.  I was working with a Phila. native and he took me to Pat's so he could introduce me to this local specialty.  After that I was hooked.  I found out that there are many variations of the cheesesteak, including a cheesesteak hoagie.  Personally, I like ketchup & mayo on a cheesesteak hoagie and just ketchup on a steak or cheesesteak w/peppers & onions.  That's just my choice.  I am not all that hung up on tradition, BUT I will say that the biggest difference in a true Philadelphia cheesesteak and those from outside the region is THE BREAD!!  You can do everything else EXCEPT the bread.  That is why I have my daughter bring me A REAL Philadelphia cheesesteak when she visits me in CT.  A good one has enough filling in it to make TWO steaks.

 Our own Roadfood member Chefbuba uses Amoroso rolls, Tender Roast Beef, and onions then topped with provolone cheese. I don't see any reason to mess with perfection.......Nice and juicy, just the way it is..........

Dear Gawd......Dare I mention that sometimes..usually in a fit of being "creative"....or perhaps drinking the same..I have been known to add Hoisin and/or Garlic chili sauce to my cheesesteak?  Oh, the shame!......Will I still be able to attend the Mummers Day parade?
 
 
And as many have said, and as the latest song goes......."It's all about the bread, bout the bread, bout bread!"  Don't know why, but the "mouthfeel" of an Amoroso roll is hard to duplicate and it does a lovely job of sucking up the juices w/o getting too soggy.

we sell a lot of cheesesteaks in out of our trailers and I've seen everything put on them. our number one is horseradish sauce. about 75% use it on their steaks. we do keep mayo in the fridge though.

Out here in Lancaster and Berks County (1 hour west of Philly) most places use American cheese. Tomato sauce also is standard. Most will make it any way you want, but the default is steak, onions, American cheese and sauce. I believe most Philadelphians call a cheesesteak with sauce a pizza steak. But I think Pizza steaks usually use mozzarella or provolone cheese. Just order a sandwich the way you like it and if they wont serve it walk away. Plenty of places will accommodate you.

Maybe it's weird, but I don't think so, I like mayo on my cheesesteaks. It's all my daughter has on hers, (she's not a fan of onions or 'shrooms). Folks like what they like and there's rarely a "wrong way" to order something.

Mayo on a cheesesteak is just as heretic as mayo on a corned beef or pastrami sandwich is to a "true Philadelphian"
 
To each his own only goes so far to me.

I once made the mistake of ordering a "Kosher Corned Beef Sandwich" at a Holiday Inn in Charleston, West Virginia. What I got was two thin slices of corned beef on white bread with lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickles and mayonnaise. (Courtesy Warning: I don't know if it's still there, but it was the Holiday Inn on the Elk.) Oh, and I was told their best wine was SHAB-liss.

ah.but the real question.......Was it Good?
 
Any port in a storm
 
In the UK, when I ordered broiled scallops, they came with more than just the muscle bit, the stomach part was also there ala a clam. It wasn't bad really, but was a big surprise at first.  I stayed away from them after that
