Let's face it, there's a group of cognoscenti who think authentic Philly cheese steaks have to have Cheez Whiz. Enjoy your steak the way you like but this would be a misdemeanor in the Philly suburb that I grew up in. (Consider: cheese steaks were invented in the 30's and Cheez Whiz came to prominence in the 60's.) Casella's is no frills but it is authentic. You'll experience the same cheese steak experience that I grew up with: Philly family making great steaks in a spartan environment. Pat's v. Geno's? Only for T-shirts because I'll go to Casella's for cheese steaks. Best for take out. Check hours before heading over after 4 p.m. because when they run out of rolls they're done for the day. Cash only. Closed Sundays. Soda by the can.

we ordered 2 for a party/wake a while back and it was the hit- hearty flavorful. the location and atmosphere are basic, the family and service really takes of you. you won't go away hungry nor disappointed as it is always packed with locals
