2009 Best Philadelphia Cheesesteak Award

I've already been asked by some but I'll explain it for everyone. Once a champion is crowned the Best Philly Cheesesteak Award, consider them the reigning champ until they are surplanted. Scores can always go up if my rating is proven wrong with a second try. Rightly so, I may change a rating for the worse if I feel the sandwich has gone downhill. Consistency is key!
Some will agree & some will disagree. The proof is in the pud-(ahem)...sandwich.
The Best Philly Cheesesteak Award goes to...
Tied for 1st Place - Tony Luke's and Pudge's, each bringing in an excellent score of 4.2 out of 5 to be the reigning champions of Philadelphia Cheese Steaks.

Can't believe your favorite places didn't make the list?
Waaaaaahhhhhh!!!!
Try to send me a "non-anonymous" note with your suggestions if you want to see them listed.
As for Phillips(no offense)...didn't even know they were still open. Haven't heard a peep about them in years.
