I did extensive research from yelp reviews, blog posts, etc, to find out where to get a great cheesesteak in Philadelphia. Well, Pat's and Geno's were the most well known. However, a lot of bloggers rated them as not that great. I did drive by to take a picture of them, but I couldn't get a cheesesteak there.
Steve's was highly rated by several blogs and on yelp. When I came across it, I knew I had to try it. They have two different ordering sections: one for sandwiches and one for drinks and fries. I guess it's for efficiency. However, it did seem strange to me. There were some things to add like peppers and hot sauce in the middle.
I decided that I had to get it with onions and with cheese whiz. I wouldn't normally order cheese whiz on purpose, but I had to try it. This cheesesteak was good. The meat was tasty. It was tender and flavorful, and it was not fatty. The onions were also an added flavor. I even liked the cheese whiz.
It was different than what I am accustomed to. I always thought a Philly cheesesteak also included bell peppers. I also thought it was always provolone. Anyway, I'm glad I ordered one, and I would get it again. G said he would order it without any cheese.
We also had an order of spicy fries. The spice was good. The fries were average.
So... I can't compare it to the originals of Pat's and Geno's, but I can say I liked this cheesesteak, and I would go there again.
