Boo’s Philly serves up some cheesesteak excellence, lil mikey says. You can get seven ounces of steak on a 10-inch Amoroso’s roll, and yes, you can get it with Cheez Whiz if your heart so desires, but also white cheddar, American, or provolone. The cheesesteaks taste just like the ones JeMange ate as a child in Philly. The steak measures about half an inch when it hits the grill, thick enough to stay tender, lil mikey says. There are grilled onions and sweet, ever-so-slightly spicy grilled peppers, and the cheese goes under the meat so it stays in one place as it melts, while the fresh roll is just firm enough to keep intact. The fries are excellent, lil mikey says. The hoagies are great, too.
