Cheap Cheesesteaks

AgentRed | May 4, 2010 07:42 PM

Hey folks,

I know cheesesteaks have been discussed to death, but everyone talks about the quality and what their favourite style is. I wanna know - what's the cheapest cheesesteak one can find in the city or surrounding areas?

I'm assuming $7.50-8.00 is the average. I think the most expensive I've had is $14ish from Mama's Pizzeria in Bala. and the cheapest was $6.00 from Sonny's (but it was really bad).
Is there a cost to quality relationship, or a certain price below which you're just served gristle on cardboard? I'd prefer to leave Wawa and Subway (etc...) out of this because they benefit from economies of scale.

Any thoughts? What's a good, authentic cheap steak? Apologies if this has been asked before, hopefully it'll be a cool discussion,
