Best cheese steak sandwich ever!

This is just a little hole in the wall. At first glance I questioned myself about even going inside but very happy I did. If I lived closer I'd become a regular.

The place isn't much to look at but the food was really good. I only tried the cheese steak and it was delicious.

This shop makes great cheese steaks. They offer all sorts of toppings. Along with cheese steaks, they offer side dishes of sorts and other main menu entrees. It seems this shop also produces handmade burgers if I can remember correctly however I was unable to try one of them.

Philly Cheese steaks are just the best. nothin' like 'em. I have been to several of these shops, in SF as well as Berkeley and Oakland, and they have all been de-lish. My one gripe, the 7" is too small, and the 10" is too big, so I wish they would make an 8 1/2. You just can't please some... More
