What’s the best cheesesteak in Philly? Asking that question beats any ice breaker, opening line, or fight-starter in this town. Everyone has a favorite and opinions for days.
The good news: It’s easy to find excellent cheesesteaks all over Philadelphia. Each spot has its own claim to fame, but the key elements are the same — a locally baked long roll that’s sturdy but soft on the inside, chopped or sliced griddle-fried beef, melted cheese (whiz, American, or provolone), and the option of fried onions (“wit” and “witout” onions are both acceptable choices). Take your pick — there’s something for everyone.
