You're insane.

The cheesesteaks are the ONLY reason I'll go anywhere near Filthydelphia. It's the only good thing to come from Philly since Ben Franklin.

I'll buy this argument. While an authentic cheesesteak never ever has mayo on it (just some american or whiz and onions, maybe some peppers), a steak and cheese hoagie/grinder/sub has lettuce and mayo on it (tomato too if you want) and some grilled onions and usually provolone is the cheese of choice. most of the places outside Philly do not make it greasy enough, so the mayo is needed to make the sub a bit more wet.

Re: A quick poll about Cheesesteaks

That's why you basically coat the grill in shit loads of vegetable oil before grilling! MMMMMm.

Re: A quick poll about Cheesesteaks

well, if a place was just serving cheesesteaks, yes you could do this. however, with the cornucopia of offerings most other places present, having a shit load of veggie oil on the grill just isn't feasible.

Sorry to get all cheesesteak snob up in here, but jeez, mayo on a cheesesteak??

You are 100% correct.

Re: A quick poll about Cheesesteaks

YUMS in D.C. is the best place to go for a cheesteak in the area, sure you may get shot or stabbed ordering it, but it is well worth it.

You have to risk your life to get a REAL Philly Cheesesteak too.

Re: A quick poll about Cheesesteaks

Talking subs here in Tidewater Va. all the Lowes hardware stores have these little moble Dominic's of NY sub shops. They cook them all day and everytime I go to Lowes I leave hungry. Its like they have a fan blowing the smell by the doors.

They do so much business there that I think they're getting lazy with the slicing of the meat, trying to turn out the sandwiches as fast as possible. I like it to be sliced ridiculously thin.

I'm a big fan of Delissandro's, which is on the northern side of the city. Then there's a place near my house in the suburbs which makes a great one. In fact I think I'll hit that up for dinner tonight!
I don't think Delissandro's is even close to Geno's. Delisandro's uses the chopped up meat technique which is something you can get all over the city...IMO the real good places use the thin slices of steak. Geno's is my 2nd favorite in Philly next to Steve's Prince of Steaks in NE Philly.

Interesting. I like the chopped up meat technique better. You can get the slices of American cheese to melt together with the meat, and the meat juice tends to ooze into the cheeze while it's cooking. You get a real homogenous flavor, the meat has cheese flavor and the cheese has meat flavor.

When you go to Geno's the standard issue is the chunks of meat cooked wit onions or without, and then served in a cheesesteak, and then the wiz is thrown on top. There's no blending of flavors there. It's just meat topped with cheese wiz. I like it cooked together better. Plus the Geno's meat isn't exactly prime rib, I think that's what gets me. It's chunky and meaty, but not that easy to bite through.

I think it was Dmek who said cheeze-wiz on a cheesesteak was terrible? I happen to agree. A lot of Philly people love the wiz, but I'd much rather throw a couple slices of American on that bad boy.

Re: A quick poll about Cheesesteaks

Steak and cheese sandwiches can have mayo. Cheesesteaks can not.

And Pat's is better then Geno's.

You can get the chopped up kind all over philly though and to me they all sort of taste the same. They are good...but I just the thin slice technique is more authentic. Trust me if you like American Cheese on your steaks you must try Steve's Prince of Steaks and get thier liquid american cheese on there...try and let me know if you still like Delasandros better. To each his own though...as long as you are eating a genuine Philly cheese steak and not ruining it with Mayo or ketchup then it's all good to me.
