Figureoa Philly is an authentic Philly cheesesteak joint just across Figueroa from Exposition Park. The cheesesteaks tasted just like the ones I ate growing up in Philadelphia. In fact, they have Amoroso rolls flown in from Philly every week. In addition to the traditional Philly cheesesteaks, they do a couple of non-traditional types (Texas with BBQ sauce; Buffalo with Buffalo wing sauce as well as chicken cheesesteaks). They do regular and sweet potato fries. Wife and kids loved the food here as well. A cheesesteak and fries will run you about $10.
The atmosphere here is very much like a Philly cheesesteak joint as well. With the exception of the large windows and the brilliant sunshine, you'd think you were in Philly with the counter staff yelling back the orders, and calling out the numbers of the completed orders. The constant clanking of the spatula on the grill as they friend and chopped the steaks took me back to my days in Philly. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Definitely a great place for a Philly cheesesteak experience!
