BEST CHEESESTEAK Sandwich in Philadelphia! Philly Cheesesteak Tour

  • Published on Aug 7, 2018
  • So glad that I got to do a Cheesesteak Tour when I visited Philadelphia this time because when you are in Philly, you got to eat some good Philly Cheesesteak!!
    Cheesesteak sandwiches have always been one of my favorite kind of sandwiches, that's why I had to make it my mission to see what the best Cheesesteak Sandwich that Philly has to offer!
    Not only did I get to taste the cheesiest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich that was oozing out with cheese, but I also got to try one of the biggest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches too! This Cheesesteak sandwich is filled with an insanely amount of toppings, full of juicy seasoned meat, fried onions, peppers and most of all, and it has so much cheese!
    Mmm, thank you, Philadelphia for your fantastic Cheesesteak Sandwiches, I will be back for more of that cheesy sandwich!

    2)Jim’s Steaks
    4)Max’s Steaks

    Meat to cheese to bread ratio confirmed. I approve.😳 I'm drooling in my bed at 4:30 am about to to sleep. Now contemplating driving to Philly from Seattle just to gorge my gut till I split.the dude on the grill at Jim's is a great man!!! Love in his work. Much appreciated dude. I was in A school in the Navy in 89' in Philly. That's when I encountered my first cheese steak. Gotta get back.

    For two years we traveled to philly every week for my moms chemo and I’ve had cheesesteaks all over the city. But to me and my dad we think wawa’s gas stations was our favorite. Philly residents don’t judge.

    Please, somebody tell me what this cheese-to-meat-bread "ratio" actually is?! Sandwich/Burger foodies throw around that term but no one ever says what it is! Is it twice as much meat as bread and cheese (2x1x1) or is it three times as much meat as bread and twice as much meat as cheese (3x1x2)? Is the "ratio" by weight? Or is it by volume? Can these people actually say?! Do they even know?!

    The 2nd and 3rd resturant has changed my mind about Philly Cheesesteak. I gave it up because I've always noticed that it's dry and tough. Those looked moist tender and delicious!

    Angry birds worst nightmare 😆 I think Jim's look good. I like the addition of peppers and pickles. The sandwich looks so comforting.
    I see your inner beauty, your insecurities - all for a Philly Cheese Steak. That one before the last was an overload (beef down 😂), it could easily feed three people.

    I visited Philly for work. I only ever tried a cheese steak from John's Roast Pork, but it was a legitimate surprise. I thought the philly steak was overhyped, but I 100% would go out of my way to revisit John's for a cheese steak.

    For those who like "Whiz"...I am happy for you. It is not allowed anywhere near my steaks. Pickles...??? No! Marinara sauce...??? No!
    Give me one "wid" diced onions that have been on the grill for awhile and American or, Provolone.
    I am pleased he did not go to Pat's or, Geno's. Bravo!

    I have never been to Philly but I want to try an authentic philly cheesesteak when I go. I have heard Pat's and Geno's are primarily for tourists, and the best places to go are Jim's Steaks, Delassandro's, and John's Roast Pork. Is that correct?
