So I've had my fair share of cheesesteaks since moving to Philly, but it seems the best ones are always the least presentable - John's R P is in a shack in the middle of nowhere; Dallesandro's is the size of a closet; Sarcone's has all of three chairs; Chickie's is take-out only; Jim's on south street has more frat boys than a kegger etc etc...
And these are fine if I'm with friends my age, but if I'd like to show visiting friends/family a good cheesesteak is there anywhere that fits? There's no need for tails and a maitre d' of course but isn't there anything in between Le Bec Fin and sitting on a splintered wooden bench in the rain?
My one idea was DiNic's at Reading Terminal Market, and maybe the new Paesano's in Center City whenever it opens.
I know cheesesteaks have been talked to death on these forums but hopefully this is a new take. Thanks for your ideas and suggestions!
