Cosmi's Deli (South Philadelphia) - Cheesesteak

Appears a foot long roll with chopped steak, melted american cheese and some fried onions. - 4

The roll is from Aversa's. It is fresh and has a slightly firm outside with a softer interior, to soak up all the juices. You also have the option of getting a harder, seeded Sarcone's roll. - 4

The meat is excellent. Moist, tender and lightly seasoned. They use a loin tail that has been marinated. Cooked just right. The result is juicy and flavorful with no fat or gristle. - 4.5

The cheese is melted on the meat on the grill. There is a decent amount and it's distributed throughout the sandwich. - 4

Overall, I was very impressed with this cheesesteak. Philadelphia Magazine awarded Cosmi's Deli best cheesesteak in 2004 and 2008. Does it live up to the hype? I'd say so. - 4.5

Total Score: 4.3/5
