      Pat's has got to be at the bottom rung -- tough, grissly meat. Only go there when drunk. Steve's and Jim's are a notch above and Geno's is probably the best of that group. Haven't been to Delassandro's for years but always thought theirs were very good. The best combination of roll and meat quality, in my opinion, are John's (on Snyder, near 2nd), Tony Luke's, and Chink's (on Torresdale) which also has outstanding milkshakes.

        While many of the reviews are now dated, this site is an excellent guide to "where the cheesesteaks are" in the greater Philly area (my "once upon a time" home area.)

          I just opened my own Philly Cheesesteak joint in Wheat Ridge, Co. I grew up in South Philly and with Pat's Steaks!! My loylaties are with Pat's when I go home to visit. However, if you are in the Denver area come by and visit my shop. "Large Marge's Philly Cheesesteaks" at 39th and Kipling St, Wheat Ridge, CO. http://largemargesphillycheesesteaks.blogspot.com.

            Marge,
            We deleted your two other posting of this same message on seperate thread. The site discourages direct AD's from new posters. We will leave this one as it adds to a long list of possibilities for locations to get a sandwich.

                at the risk of re-opening this endless debate I had a very good cheesesteak at Chubby's in Roxborough on Sunday.
                with onions plus mushrooms. The steak is chopped. The roll was Amoroso's. The Hollyeats website says the onions are grilled with the meat, but if so mine weren't grilled very long.

                Still very good and better than either Pat's or Genos IMHO.Chubbys is on Henry Ave,directly across from D'allesandro's (which was closed on Sunday)

                Also had onion rings which were very good. The guy sitting next to me at the counter had a cheeseburger which looked even better than the cheesesteak.

                Any other opinions on Chubby's?

                    I have two favorites for cheesesteak. First, a caveat - I am NOT a fan of the cheese wiz deal. For me, it's bread, steak, and provolone or American, definitely not cheese wiz. That said, The Real Thing in Towson, MD has by far the best cheesesteak I've ever tasted - better than any I ever got in Philly. After that, a place called Zia Maria in Adamstown, PA has a cheesesteak that will make your knees droop - not because of the meat (though the meat is great) but because of the pizza dough roll they serve them in. Damn great cheesesteaks.

                      Haven't been to the Real Thing since they moved to York Road. Guess I'll have to pay a visit.

                        Just got back from a trip to try out a new cheesesteak destination in my area.
                        Kappy's on Butler Pike between Ridge and Germantown Pike in Conshohocken, PA. Less than ten minutes from I476. Opened in April, this was my first visit. Owner Greg Kapler saw a need for a cheesesteak destination stop. There are many restaurants in the area where you can order a cheesesteak, but not many that feature cheesesteaks.

                        I must tell you that he has the right idea. He makes a good sized sandwich with fresh meat, not frozen, and fresh baked rolls from Conshohocken Bakery close by. He offers American, Provolone, and Cheese Whiz - the real Kraft trademarked product, not an imitation. He has tables outside (no indoor seating) and stand-up stations where you can do the famous South Philly cheesesteak lean (a standing position where you hold your sandwich away from your body and clothes so as not to stain them and lean over to eat it).

                        The sandwich was loaded with meat. I got mine with Cheese Whiz and fried onions. Price: $5.40 Verdict: Damn good! One of my new favorites. Better than most sandwiches found in the entire Philly area. I've been to hundreds of steak shops and this is a real find!

                        If you're in the area, check this place out and tell Greg I told you about it on Roadfood.com.

                          I had very poor experience at Chubby's on my one visit there. Wouldn't even have been there had Dallesandros been open. Read about it here: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=14045

                          I am definitely a proponent of unchopped meat, at least so far. 4 cheesesteaks over 2 days does not exactly make me an expert :-)

                            I can hardly bring myself to eat cheesesteak anymore since I tried the roast pork at Tony Luke's. I didn't know I could feel this way about a sandwich. I'm sorry, I can't go on...must get to Tony Luke's right away!

                              Scott, sliced or chopped at Kappy's?

                              Also, I glanced at the August Best Of issue of Philadelphia. A couple of new places mentioned for best cheesesteak. Have you tried any of them?

                                    Chopped.
                                    The overall winner was Johnny's Hots. Primarily known for his great hot dogs and combination hot dog and fishcake, Philadelphia Magazine loved his cheesesteaks. I have not been there. Holly Moore does a nice review on the hot dogs on his site.

                                        Let me see if I understand you. You're saying that this place takes a whole ribeye steak and puts it on bread. And you are also saying they top this hunk of beef with a piece of American cheese. And they call that a cheesesteak?

                                          Well I wouldn't call it a hunk of meat,its about an 8 to 10 ounce ribeye steak similiar to the same one they serve at Piccolo's in Hoboken,and that
                                          they used to serve at the Clipper Ship in Newark.

                                            they used to serve at the Clipper Ship in Newark.

                                            I'm sure it must be excellent. However, it's not a cheesesteak sandwich. It's a steak sandwich with cheese, I suppose.

                                              Can you be more specific,I've tried the sliced steak that they usually sell
                                              in Philly,at both Geno's and Pat's and I like them both but I never cared for the chopped steak version of this sandwich.

                                                I had an excellent cheesesteak (best ever?!?) the other day at Chelsea Pizza in AC area... It's in Pleasantville on route 40 (also known as the Black Horse Pike) in the K-mart shopping center, a whopping 5 minutes from my condo.

                                                It was juicy, and the peppers and onions blended in so perfect. I definitely recommend it.
                                                I had one from the famous Tony Lukes, in the Borgata (where I work) casino food court on my break. It was pretty dried out and a little tough tasting, and they had no green peppers (the horrors!), only hot peppers. Furthermore, they did not melt the cheese at all.
                                                But I love their hot roast beef sandwich (only available at the Philly location)

                                                    yes, Roosy, I'll keep an eye out for him at the Borgata..........I'll look at the nametags, and introduce myself! Sooner or later, I've got to run into him...

                                                    Just to correct my Tony Luke's (borgata casino food court) cheesesteak assessment...
                                                    I meant to say that they did not even have any SWEET peppers, just hot peppers !
                                                    Come on now, a cheesesteak without a sweet pepper option?!?
                                                    That's part of the whole package , the peppers and onions...

                                                      You know, I'm glad you cleared that up. Every place outside of the 90 mile radius of Philadelphia thinks a "Philly cheesesteak" has green peppers on it. It doesn't. Actually, sweet peppers aren't used as much as hot cherry peppers are as an optional topping. And green peppers are never part of the mix.
