BEST CHEESESTEAK Sandwich in Philadelphia! Philly Cheesesteak Tour

  • Published on Aug 7, 2018
  • So glad that I got to do a Cheesesteak Tour when I visited Philadelphia this time because when you are in Philly, you got to eat some good Philly Cheesesteak!!
    Cheesesteak sandwiches have always been one of my favorite kind of sandwiches, that's why I had to make it my mission to see what the best Cheesesteak Sandwich that Philly has to offer!
    Not only did I get to taste the cheesiest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich that was oozing out with cheese, but I also got to try one of the biggest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches too! This Cheesesteak sandwich is filled with an insanely amount of toppings, full of juicy seasoned meat, fried onions, peppers and most of all, and it has so much cheese!
    Mmm, thank you, Philadelphia for your fantastic Cheesesteak Sandwiches, I will be back for more of that cheesy sandwich!

      SD, it wonderful watching you have something other than lobster, cheesesteak could not have been a better option than lobster.
      Now the Texas BBQ.
      I'm having a great piece of brisket from the smoker as I type this.

    I live in Delaware for a while on campus the Blue Hens and they had a little store homemade cheesesteaks and they made it with ketchup which I know puts a lot of people off but it was so good I would eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner

    Nothing like a good Philly cheese steak 👌👌👌
    All the places in the video are great.
    Any food truck in Philly can make a fresh 5 or 6 $ steak and it's amazing.
    Having try just about any sub in the country I would say the Philly steak it's the best.
    I love Primanti Bros pastrami, I love the Chicago Italian beef, the Cuban in Florida, the po boys in New Orleans, the Lobster roll, meatball subs, Binghamton chicken speedie, Italian subs,sausage n peppers,pork tenderloin, NYC pastrami etc...had them all.
    For me the Philly cheese steak is #1👌👌👌
    And yes I love the roast pork as well.
    And I'm from New York.

    I eat at the NE Philly location.. They also have one on Comly rd. Near the Nabisco on the Roosevelt Blvd.. they both are awesome.. I haven't tried the CC Philly spot. I love that they don't shred the meat, it is tender as can be and you can see it's real quality steak.. Maybe you need to try The original store Bustleton Ave.. & the Blvd..
    2 blocks down actually.. or the Comly ave. Location..
    Try one of those stores and then give me your opinion again.. K Happy New year to you.. Bon appetit

    Hey Mike....Happy New Year! Of all of the videos that you make, the ones like this and your pizza videos are among my favorites. It'd be really great to see you hit up more places here across the US. There are some amazing places here in middle America that have food that's just as delicious and the food places along the east or west coasts. Hope to see that, but if you don't tour middle America, I'll still enjoy your show. This show never fails to make me hungry :)

    Hi! I must say something!!!
    You went to some good places for cheese steaks, but you missed the BEST PLACE FOR A CHEESE STEAK.. THAT PLACE IS STEVE'S PRINCE OF STEAKS !! Sorry for screaming but I've lived in Philadelphia my whole life..
    I'm in my 50's now.. Jim's steaks are decent, Cleaver? Never been there, nor have any inclination.. The roll was horrible looking.. Seeds?? No thanks.. Look, do yourself a real favor and go to Steve's prince of steaks..
    You should know how to order.. Fried onions=wit
    Specify cheese.. Wiz or the best American cheese sauce .. it's Awesome..
    Pro tip.. Save the wiz for the fries!! Btw, one window to order ur steaks.. the other window to order ur cheese fries and drinks.. Everything is cooked fresh to order..
    This way it's the same perfect food every single time.. I will be upset if you don't get back to Philly and treat yourself to the best steak anywhere.. period..
    I'm talking about the everyday Sub/hoagie/steak shops we all go Tom. None Better for cheese steaks..
    The fried onions are unique because they dice them into these little perfect squares of onion.. So much better than stringy onions.. It makes the steak.. My favorite is kinda simple, Cheesesteak - American Wit.. well done on the onions.. They have a straight forward condiment's bar.. Home cut dill pickles, hot peppers (whole) and cut, hot sauce, ketchup the usual other stuff.. I've been going since they opened in 1980..
    Please go , it will be so worth it..
    The address is: 7200 Bustleton Ave.. Northeast Philly.. One more thing, the steak is not like that chopped up mess you get other places.. The steak is sliced thin and cooked in medallions.. ?? looking peices.. It's real steak.. I need one now!

      Steve IS O.K (THE ONE IN C.C) the only thing that knocks me off about Steve is they don't chop up their meat other then that the service is cool 😎their Hoagies are cool😎 the cheese steaks would be 😎 but they just don't chop up the meat other then that I'm cool 😎.......FROM PHILLY TO U

    I can't believe you didn't try Pat's. It was the first place my friends in Philly took me to and after trying 5 or 6 other places they were the best subs I'd ever had . I still { after 40 years } occasionally make the trip from NYC to hit the Italian Market and go to Pats .

    Honest review, as a Philadelphian, I agree. Max's is the best, best overall sandwich is the roast pork at John's tho.

    Thank you for trying Max’s. It is the best cheesesteak I have ever had. There under-rated, they should be known more then those other Cheesesteak spots.

    I'm a Philly native. First, I am glad you did not visit Pat's and Geno's. I mean for a first video, I guess you have to because they are the tourist spots, but they are by far not the best steaks. Even for locals, I think their favorite steak is really dependent on the neighborhood loyalty. I grew up in the Northeast so Steve's Prince of Steaks is by far the best to me. I believe that's their original location and that is their best spot (the one in the far NE and center city don't compare for some reason). Jim's is also good if I'm going to be objective. I now live in the NW and I am near Delassandro's but honestly, theirs is pretty mediocre.

    Dinic's also has great roast pork. If you ever come back, you should visit Reading Terminal Market. It can be crowded and congested but lots of options inside, including Dinic's.

    I've been gone for more than a decade but when I visit family, I go to Steve's and it remains the best time after time.
