It sounds good, but I wouldn't call something like this a cheesesteak. I would call it a steak sandwich with cheese. Once it gets too fancy I can no longer call it a cheesesteak.

I guess that's why he can get away charging 13 bucks. I'll just stick wit my wiz. Had to invent my own cheesesteak here in Austin. Got a french bagette, found some already cooked "Cheeseteak" at HEB, sauted peppers and onions opend a jar of wiz and there you have it. Ya gotta make do.

It's not a Philly cheese steak, but it sure does look great!

A few years ago, Barclay Prime on Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia was selling this cheese steak for $100: kobe beef, lobster, some kind of fancy-pants cheese, and shaved truffles on a Parmesan brioche. It wasn't awful, but if it were my money (I was on an expense account), I'd rather spend it on 10 or 15 real cheese steaks.

Speaking of fancy, check out those toothpicks holding that mess together.  Worth $100 right there.  How are you supposed to eat that other than with a knife and fork?  The second you pick up any, it will all be in your lap and look how they did that V slicing of the roll. 
 I have big issue with the brioche, a pervasive sandwich abomination.  It just isn't designed for and lacks the structural integrity to heft real sandwich innards.  I haven't had one yet that held together until I was finished. 
 I'm definitely ok with creativity applied to the classics but sometimes, simpler is best.  As to the OP's link, I do like the sounds of that but, if I was going to Caribou Cafe, I'd likely get a more typical bistro dish.

Looks yummy and nasty at the same time!
