I love a good cheesesteak! One of these days I'm going to have to get myself to Philly to try an original. Then I can join the debate over who is better? Geno's or Pat's. In the meantime, I'll have to settle for what Vegas has to offer. Fortunately, we have some good options. My favorite Philly Steak Out (at Ft Apache/Trop) closed down awhile back. It was a sad, sad day when I learned I'd never get that tasty bite again. Ever since, I've been looking for replacement. I've had dozens of unmemorable sandwiches, some should be ashamed to have called theirs cheesesteak on the menu. However, a couple are stand outs. Before finding POP's I liked the cheesesteaks at Capriotti's. Then, Frank turned me on to the real deal over on Decatur. Get the details at Vegas Values: Direct from Philly.

Yes, I could really go for a cheesesteak and cheese fries about now. But I'll behave and enjoy my spicy chicken stew for lunch. One day I shall be reunited with that ooey gooey cheesy beefy goodness.
