Steve's Steaks (South Philadelphia) - Cheesesteak


Appears a 10" steak roll cut and placed in a basket. Nice looking roll with a scattering of melted cheese, chopped onions, and thinly sliced, chopped ribeye. - 4

The roll is from Liscio's Italian Bakery. Believe me when I tell you that this is one of the best rolls that I've had the pleasure of eating a cheesesteak on. This is my first experience with these guys and I'm very happy with the firmness of the outer exterior, to the spongy center that does an excellent job of soaking up all the goodness and maintaining the integrity of the bread. It's almost as good as the rolls that Tony Luke's uses. - 4.5

The meat is thinly sliced, chopped ribeye that is lightly seasoned, and juicy. The flavors in this steak are really good. The only knock against it is the amount. There could be a bit more ala Tony Luke's, or Pudge's to hang with the big boys. - 3.5

The cheese...these guys got it right! American cheese that is melted and running throughout the meat without going overboard like the other Steve's(Prince of Steaks). 4.5

Overall, I was impressed with this South Street stop. Delicious sandwich and friendly help behind the counter. I will be back! - 4

Total Score: 4.1/5

Liscio's actually provides the bread for Tony Luke's as well. I think the difference is something Tony does to it, because I think it's the same roll. Either way we can agree that it's freaking delicious. Keep on eating Philly!
