Philadelphia Cheesesteaks

Posted on May 3rd, 2022

Here in Philly, cheesesteaks are more than just sustenance: They’re civic icons, tourist draws and — let’s own it — cultural obsessions.

So, What Is A Cheesesteak?

A cheesesteak — always one word — consists of a long, crusty roll filled with thinly sliced, freshly sautéed ribeye beef and melted cheese. The art of cheesesteak preparation lies in the balance of flavors, textures and what is often referred to as the drip factor.

For many dedicated cheesesteak consumers, the definitive cheese of choice is Cheez Whiz, referred to as, simply, Whiz, but American and provolone are widely accepted alternatives. Other common toppings include sautéed onions, ketchup and sweet or hot — “long hots” — peppers.

There are lots of creative takes out there on this region’s specialty sandwich, too, but here we focus mostly on where to get the classic Philly cheesesteak. (That said, there are a few worthy contenders that stray slightly from the tried-and-true fashion, in a seriously delicious way.)

Below, our picks for notable spots dishing Philly cheesesteaks are organized by area, so you can sample more than one cheesesteak on any neighborhood outing.
