    I can't imagine that they are any different really....I mean it's steak, onion, I like hot peppers, provolone, mayo

    delicious

    It just doesn't taste the same outside of the Philly area. I know the ingredients are the same. It's just something intangible.
    intangible?????

    NICE WORD!!!!!

    hehehehehe......................

    its too early in the morning for me to come up with words like intangible.....hehehehe

    That's cool and all.....I'm just an avid supporter that the rolls here are just better than in other areas of the country. And canned mushrooms? C'mon, man.

    that's why I'm so surprised that anyone in Philly would put cheese whiz on something so tremendous

    not saying you do but it always surprised me

    Silly? When I was up in Rhode Island, as a goof I took a stab at trying their "cheesesteak". I got a slab of skirt steak on a round roll, with green peppers, and a slice of cheese. Now, that's silly. And don't get me started on what they served me as what should have been a stromboli. Unbelievable.

    Jim's?
    I bet ya dont remember the name of the diner.....

    that place was great....

    Bowls of soup and fried bologna sandwiches at 2am.......

    betcha i do...well maybe
    Midtown Restaurant?

    great breakfast too

    and any place that serves a damn fine fried bologna sandwich,
    on buttered toast nonetheless, at 2am is A+ in my book
    Nice shirt.

    Individual places...there are plenty of good cheesesteaks outside of Philly. PLenty of good pizza outside of Chicago...I htink you get the point. Now, it may be more hit and miss outside of the "home" area.

    Ya see, that's what I mean. That's not a cheesesteak. That's something, alright, but it's not a cheesesteak. And with au jus for dipping? This is sounding more and more like a roast beef sandwich.

    That was hysterical the way John Kerry was and is still mocked in Philly for ordering a cheesesteak with swiss cheese.

    Oh, I've had solid attempts at a cheesesteak in other parts of the country and NONE of them come close to one around here. Even the worst one around here is better than any outside of here. Draw a circle around Philly from up to about Allentown to the north, Harriburg to the west, eastern shore of Maryland/Cape May, NJ to the south and AC to the east and you have your region. And it's because the rolls in this area are serviceable to those areas. It's all about our rolls.

    Cool list, thanks for posting.

    I still think there is something to be said for hitting Pat's and Geno's latenight if you aren't a Philly native.

    What a great job that guy has...if he survives.

    thats true, a little far if you live in the northeast, steves is usually my steak of choice late night.
    not only did he survive, we just did the great hoagie hunt this past spring, he had to have eaten over 50 hoagies as well
