“This is the Real Deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Been in Philly 3 times in my life. 1st trip had to pickup truck in Levittown. Told tire shop I was not going to be able to go downtown for steak. Got real good cussing and learned the big 2 are tourist traps. Same as we have in Ft Worth, TX. They had long colorful argument about where to send Tex. Finally one of them mentioned Steves. They all agreed colorfully that they were illegitimate dummies for not thinking of Steves right away. OK. Where is this Steves? Just down the road. Thanks guys. Head down. Little place. Just opened for day. Told guy to make mine like his. With onions and American is his way. Took out 10-14 pcs of bologna thick ribeye and quickly grilled them. Slapped on bun. Cheese was white. Thought you were going to give me American. "It is American -not that [expletive} John Carey eats". LOL Got drink and fries. Hit good pepper bar. Sandwich was killer!!! Fantastic bread. Meat was great. Same with fries. Guy comes over and wants to know what I think. It sucks!! He laughs and says "you're alright Tex!". Promised him when he comes to TX I'm showing him good Tex Mex. Been back to this location one time and hit one on other side of town once. All have been great. Not fancy. Limited seating. But delicious honest food.

“Go here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

After you take a bite of your cheesesteak wit fried onions you'll finally get what the 'Philly cheesesteak thing' is all about. Until then, you have only had a sandwich. It's in Northeast Philly and although I live in Wilmington, Delaware I'll still take the ride, it's WORTH it. I grew up in Philly and had cheesesteaks just about everywhere but the is no comparison. Downside: ...yep there is one. Once you try one you'll be spoiled and nothing else will compare. Steve's does it right. If your visiting and want to have a real cheesesteak, go to Steve's and stay away from the the whole Gino's vs. Pat's mess, that's just for tourists. Promise: One bite and you'll get it.

“Forget all the rest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

Steve's is simply the best. Don't even think about going to Pat's or Geno's before going to Steve's. I have been going there for years and the cheesesteaks are always amazing. Fresh rolls, meat cooked to perfection, and great fries (get the melted american cheese fries). It is worth the trip.

“Now this is cheese steak!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

After doing taste tests of Philly cheese steaks of a couple of places in Philadelphia, I must say the best is Steve's and my family agrees. I went with the provolone and my family went with the cheeze whiz, including plain and whiz fries. No contest! Hands down the food was tasty, hot, and a nice large sandwich to sink your teeth into. Either way you order it you will not be dissapointed. The cheeze whiz is not thin. It has just the right texture. Enjoy with a couple of condiments on the side. A no frills eatery which adds to the experience. A very happy stuffed belly!
