I'm from Philly, but I don't really mind that it's not ""authentic"" or since NYC food is all about fusion anyway. If you're going to do some creative poppy seed bun version of the classic cheesesteak, be my guest. My beef here, no pun intended, is that the cheese and the steak part are so grossly neglected! I mostly got a mouthful of onions and hotsauce, and hardly tasted the cheese and steak part. And that is a cardinal sin, because that's basically what a cheesesteak is. Some of the best in Philly don't even need onions to be great, it's all about the bun, the meat, the cheese, and the way they all melt together and drip out the bun and give you a nice warm fuzzy feeling. This is a good value, but go to South Philly, find Cosmi's Deli, order a ""cheesesteak WIDOUT"" and get schooled.
Pros: I like the onions, good sauce, good price
Cons: can't taste the meat!
