Whilst having another wonderful Poblano/Dreamery meal last night in Del Ray, a friend mentioned that just down the block there's a hole-in-the-wall that serves the best cheesesteaks south of Philly. (Actually, he said that they were better than any in Philly, but he's not from Philadelphia (nor am I).). The place is Al's Steakhouse on Mt. Vernon Avenue in Del Ray (Alexandria). There was one rave about it on this Board back in July, but other than that, I've found nothing.
Can anyone confirm? Worth the travel and calories? Dare I ask: Is it as good as the torta at El Charrito Caminante?
