i was wondering how good the cheesesteaks from the wells fargo centre are?? ive been to philly 2 times and havent tried them... been to pats/genos and jims... i really wana try tony lukes when we go later in march... just looking for an opinion.. thanks... GO FLYERS!! BREAK THIS BS STREAK!
Tony Lukes is probably the best your gonna get at the stadium. Campos makes an amazing Italian hoagie though.
I wouldn't advise getting a cheesesteak from WFC if you're looking for that authentic Philly cheesesteak. Nearest spot for a great one is Tony Luke's; and Pat's and Geno's aren't far from the complex. Pat's is my personal favorite.
The absolute BEST steak in the city. Hands down.
A close 2nd for me would have to be CHINK's on Torresdale Ave in the Tacony Section.
Its only a 10 minutes drive down 95 from the 'Farg and is open until 8 or 9.
There's a couple of good places up near me in Manayunk/Roxborough. Fiesta Pizza, Delasandros and Barrys are all fantastic.
I used to live there for years..and Delasandro's was always my favorite.
Fiesta, for me, wouldn't rank up there, but my first girlfriend used to work there when I was a teen back in the late 80s and it brings back good memories
Barry's is pretty good, but of course he used to work for Delasandro's until he left and opened up his own place, so unless he's changed, their sandwiches are/were similar. Good stuff.
There was a place on belmont ave, shortly over green lane bridge called mamma's. Their steaks were PACKED and they used a 3 cheese combo from Wisconsin. I used to really like that place. But overall? Delasandro's. Okay now I'm hungry.
On the topics of cheesesteaks, what is the best you have had outside of the Philly area? A place called Aleco's in Harrisburg on 2nd street is the best I have ever had, maybe even better than anywhere in Philly. The Chicken or the Egg on Long Beach Island also makes a mean steak.
I was really disappointed in the sandwich I got from Campo's at the stadium. It was no better than the mediocre sandwiches I've gotten in Jersey.
For a real cheesesteak you have to go to:
John's Roast Pork (my personal favorite)
Delasandro's (my favorite before I had one from John's)
Can't go wrong with any of those places. Of course theres some random pizza places or sandwich shops across the city that have awesome steaks as well, but of the "big name" places these are the best, in my opinion.
Pat's, Tony Luke's, Geno's, are all better than sandwiches you're gonna have from other places across the country but they aren't on the same level as the places I listed above. Jim's is also pretty good. I prefer them to Pat's or Geno's.
Edit: I haven't had many cheesesteaks from other parts of the country, so that would be mostly speculation on my part.
