Best cheesesteak

hoghoodoo | Mar 18, 2009 12:17 AM

I lived in Philly for 8 months in 2000 and became quite a fan of the well-rendered cheesesteak (don't even talk to me about putting "whiz" on my sandwich...). My wife and I still fight over which of the "twin towers of Roxbury" (my phrase, Philly neighborhood), "Chubby's" or "D'Allesandro's", had the best. D'Allesandro's was my fave. I think the wife liked Chbby's because you could sit down and eat at the restaurant... and they had fries, curly ones. D'Allesandro's just made the best freakin' c-steak. With Provolone for chrissakes.

Are there any even close approximations of D'Allesandro's out there in greater LA? Philly expats The closer to Hollywood / SGV the better. I rarely go to the west side and have tried "Philly's Best", "South Street" and "Luigi Ortega". IMHO South street was best, but I'm not Amoroso roll alone won't get you to heaven...
