This is my first review here, but I just had to do it. This place deserves business!
I moved to Denver in Nov. of 2006. Since my arrival I've asked friends & co-workers where I can find a good sub / cheesesteak shop. I kept getting answers consisting of these little foo-foo sandwich shops that have the word "gourmet" in their names just to jack up the price of a typical sandwich I could make at home. I quit asking around.
I found Pat's Cheesesteaks, of all places, in the coupons in the back of the phone directory. I said "Let's try it. It's just a couple miles from home and absolutely can't be any worse than those we've been trying".
I was skeptical when I walked in the door, I mean, the place is nothing to look at. Undaunted by appearances I looked the menu over and ordered a medium cheesesteak. Service was very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. A few minutes later my cheesesteak arrived at the table. Anyone who knows anything about cheesesteaks knows that it's all about the bread - and Pat's has *THE* bread for cheesesteaks! It's not some wimpy soft bread that falls apart under the weight and moisture of the contents, but it's not so hard that it hurts to bite into it. Their bread is perfectly chewy every time.
The cheesesteak is just exactly that - cheese & steak. If you prefer sweet peppers & onions on yours then be sure to order the Pat's Phatty. Their new South Florida Cuban is very good too (and I should know, I spent 5? years in Miami before moving here). There are more sandwiches to choose from. Make your choice and top it off with an order of fries or onion rings & a drink and you've got the perfect picnic fixings for a day at the park. When you order, note the sizes of the bread up on the wall. They have four sandwich sizes to choose from, but beware of the BIGGIE - it's huge!
If you like sandwiches there are lots of places to go, but Pat's is the only place for an AUTHENTIC PHILLY CHEESE STEAK. I'm a loyal customer - you should be too!
Pros: high quality food & friendly service
