Calvin’s “World Famous South Philly Cheesesteaks” are back after a 17-year hiatus, on San Jose’s Alameda, reports Ken Hoffman.

“Great flavor, perfectly cooked beef conspire to encourage overeating,” says Ken. “The skin-on fries, crisp and toothsome, don’t help.”

The buns, baked to Calvin’s specifications, are soft but strong enough to hold the tender steak strips, caramelized onions, and melted cheese. “The result is satisfying and wholesome.”

And you may encounter Calvin himself, who enjoys chatting with his clientele.
