Certain cities are known for certain foods. Philadelphia is no exception, and many visitors to this city go in search of the best cheesesteak. Depending on who you speak to, their ideas of the best steaks may vary greatly, but generally, city-goers tend to agree on the same top venues. These restaurants are known for their expertise at turning out cheesesteaks really well. They've pinned down the ingredients, mastered the process, and gained a strong following as a result. Locals can't get enough of popular menu selections at spots like Jim's Steaks or at Tony Luke's, both major players in the field. Others prefer destinations such as Dalessandro's in Roxborough, or one of the rival steak shops in South Philly. Whatever your cheesesteak preferences (and there's a lingo that goes along with regulars who oder at these shops, so listen for it), you're sure to find a shop or two that makes these sandwiches to your liking. Part of the joy of finding that perfect sandwich lies n the search, so feel free to make discovering your just as much of an adventure. Do you prefer your sandwich with cheese, and if so what kind? Do you now what Cheez-Whiz is, and that it can be quite tasty on a steak? How about ketchup? Sauce? Onions (fried or regular), peppers (on the sandwich or on the side). The choices are a delicious part of the discovery process. Make sure you see what all the fuss is about.
