10 Spots for Authentic Philly
Cheesesteaks by Nicki Chodnoff
up in Philadelphia, I found cheesesteaks
were part of my existence, like drinking
liquid and breathing air. Juicy, cheesy
and beefy – not to mention the delicious
fried onions and soft rolls. Having
consumed so many cheesesteaks over the
years, I think I developed palate memory.
are Philadelphia icons, a tourist draw
and a cultural obsession. Often imitated,
the cheesesteak is rarely duplicated
successfully outside of Philadelphia.
Since moving far away from Philadelphia,
I’ve yet to find a cheesesteak that can
equal any found in the metro area.
sandwiches were Philadelphia’s answer to
fast food years before the national
chains came into the picture. They are
fast, portable and readily available at
steak shops, delis, food trucks, pizzerias
and even some high-end restaurants
throughout the region. As long as the
establishment is locally owned, and not
part of a chain, you are bound to get a
decent steak sandwich or cheesesteak.
we are on the same page, a steak sandwich
or cheesesteak is a long, crusty roll (my
favorite rolls were Amoroso) filled with
thinly sliced sautéed ribeye beef (ribeye
is the standard though some places may
use other thinly sliced cuts of beef) and
melted cheese. Leave out the cheese and
it’s just a steak sandwich. Generally,
the cheese of choice is Cheez Whiz. American,
mozzarella and provolone cheeses are
equally delicious and available in most
places. Cheesesteak preparation lies in
the balance of flavors and textures. Some
judge steak sandwiches and cheesesteaks
on the “drip” factor, the juice and/or
cheese that drips out of the roll. Other
toppings may include fried onions,
sautéed mushrooms, ketchup and hot or
sweet cherry peppers or a combination of
some or all of those toppings.
sandwich shops (some are known as
luncheonettes – small informal
restaurants that serve lunch) offer a
cheesesteak hoagie or steak hoagie, a
hybrid that combines the cheesesteak or

cheesesteak made its official debut in
1930. Pat Olivieri
was a South Philadelphia hot dog vendor
who decided to put some beef from the
butcher on his grill. A taxicab driver
noticed the alluring aroma and asked for
his own steak sandwich.
next day, as the story goes, rumor of the
delicious lunch had spread, and cabbies
around the city came to Olivieri demanding
steak sandwiches. Soon after, Olivieri opened up a
shop on 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue,
Pat’s King of Steaks, to sell his new
creation. Eventually, according to
legend, he added cheese to the recipe.
Pat’s grills sizzle 24 hours a day, as do
Geno’s, the rival steak shop across the
street. For 40 years, the two shops have
waged a friendly competition to win the
title of best cheesesteak in town, with
Geno’s founder, Joe Vento, claiming it
was he, not Olivieri,
who first added cheese to the

(other shops have similar routines) you
want to let the cashier know whether you
want a steak or cheesesteak, what type of
cheese you want and if you want fried
onions. You need to be as quick and
concise as possible. You order and pay
before you get your food.
are so adept at ordering, they have it
down to three words: saying “one whiz
with” to the person behind the counter
means that you would like one cheesesteak
[denoted by the “one”] with Cheez Whiz as your
choice of cheese [denoted by the “whiz”]
and with fried onions [denoted by the
“with”]. Similarly, saying “one provolone
without” would secure you a single
cheesesteak [one] made with provolone
cheese [provolone] and without fried
onions [without]. Or saying “two American
with” would get you two cheesesteaks both
with American cheese and fried onions.

don’t have your order and money ready to
go, you may be sent to the back of the
Philadelphia Convention and Visitors
Bureau compiled a list of where to find
the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia.
You can’t go wrong getting a steak
sandwich or cheesesteak at any of their
recommended places. In my opinion, a
steak sandwich or cheesesteak anywhere in
the Philadelphia area is better than what
you get in your hometown.
