If you’re looking for a Philly cheesesteak these days, Big Mike’s has got the goods. Plus, there’s plenty of parking at the El Segundo location. SauceSupreme says it’s now his top cheesesteak in town.

Sandwiches are huge, piled with hot, moist, tasty beef, says nosh. The peppers, sweet and hot, add enough spice that you don’t have to reach for the hot sauce.

Skinny fries are unpeeled here and there, dusted with some kind of spice blend. They’re good but not supercrisp, if that’s your thing.

There are various combo permutations, with 6- or 12-inch sub; chips, fries, garlic fries (if you want to feel the burn of raw garlic), or onion rings; and soda.

Despite the fast-food set-up and a crowd at lunch, service is helpful and friendly.
