I wanted to like Carl's Cheese Steaks BUT...

I finally got to try Carl's Cheese Steak (with Whiz and grilled onions). They're on 3rd Ave, north of E. 34 St.

While I agree the sandwich had a decent flavor, the sandwich was DRENCHED IN GREASE.

It got so bad that the grease actually soaked through the paper plate the sandwich came on, dirtying the table.

I was disappointed because to me, HEAVY GREASE does not equal an enjoyable Philly cheesesteak experience.

I know many on this board will disagree with me and call this an "authentic Philly cheesesteak experience." But for me, the search continues...

Maybe I have to get to Philly...
