So, the idea is to hit about a half-dozen well-known and/or well-regarded places for a cheesesteak tasting at each, all in one day. Based on some reviews as well as tradition, I am now considering the following:
Pat's (for the tradition)
Jim's Steaks at 4th & South St. (great reviews)
Tony Luke's (ditto)
Leo's in Folcroft (great reviews for a near-city place)
Dalessandro's in Roxborough (ditto)
Comments and additions (but you've got to replace someone!) welcome.
