When Googling, "Best Philly Cheesesteaks in Philly," you're bound to get a long list of places. But Dalessandro's stood out, so my and girlfriend and I decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed! The service was really fast and accommodating. Despite visiting on a Saturday afternoon during a busy service, the staff was able to seat... More

This place is BUSY, but that's just because locals know this place is the best. They will get you in and out in under 15 minutes during the tail end of lunch hour, but don't expect to find a seat to eat-in if you're there between 11-1. The steaks are ridiculously good. Huge, fresh, crispy bread, prime steak. 100/100, would... More

I have been to many cheesesteak places in Philly. While many of them are good, Dalessando's is excellent. They give you way more steak than other places and no fatty spots. I highly recommend this place. When friends come to visit, this is the place I take them to experience a real Philly cheesesteak.

Absolutely fantastic. It was loaded with onions and they were cut thick. I also love how the cheese is underneath the meat. Ate inside at the counter, it was a great experience. Took two more home for the rest of the fam.

You might not agree that it's the best (it is) but it's in the top 3 of everyone who has been there. I've even done a full day cheese steak tour, and it still won. Chicken cheeses are great too. It's crowded, so go in with a laid back attitude and some patience.

Do yourself a big favor and skip past all those big name famous spots and search this place out. The steak melted in your mouth and they use real American cheese. The service was great and they do a great job moving the people in and out quickly.

After trying several other places for a cheese steak, this place tops them all. The portions are big enough a couple could split a sandwhich and be satisfied. The place is small so be prepared for elbow to elbow room. The orders go out quick though. I highly recommend going here. We will return!

Really good portion, with great beef flavor. Onions where chopped too big, which I didn't care for (they kept flopping out of the sandwich). Almost gave this place a three due to under seasoning the meat, but the quality of the beef saved it.

You can skip Pat's and all the other South Philly steak shops, None compare with Dalessandro's. Quality of meat is excellent as are the rolls, cheese and sauce.
