Dalessandro's (Roxborough, Philadelphia) - Cheesesteak

Appears a packed 11" roll with finely chopped steak, topped with fried onions. - 4

The roll is an Amoroso's. Maybe not my first choice, but at least this roll is super fresh. It has a pretty soft interior, but works for this sandwich. - 3.5

The meat is fresh ribeye. The steak is chopped up really fine on the grill. No fat or gristle, with a slight amount of grease. The steak almost melts in your mouth.  Really high quality stuff here. - 4.5

The cheese is american and melted on the grill with the steak. Melted throughout meat, not just thrown on the roll and left half melted. Cheese to meat ratio is outstanding. A real nice balance. - 4.5

Overall, one of my favorite places. Dalessandro's has been open for over 50 years and has received numerous praise and awards throughout the years. They are also Zagat rated. Always an enjoyable experience, with fast and friendly service. You can even order a beer with your sandwich. - 4.5

Total Score: 4.3/5
