Don't let the divey digs deter you: within these drab walls lie some of SF's most satisfying cheesesteaks. Thinly shaved beef, Cheez Whiz, contrasting sweet peppers, and 7 inch sandwiches under $5 explain the long lines and awning warning: "Caution: may be habit forming."
Great Cheese Steak – The Sign says it all... "Caution: May be habit forming" Although I did not go with the Steak, I had the Deluxe Chicken Cheese Steak and it was Great. I have been looking for a place to enjoy a good Sandwich and this place has it!!! I was driving by saw the sign and popped in and I was Glad I did. The line moves quick and you can either sit down or take out. I love the pictures inside, it really gives you the feeling you are in an original Cheese Steak Shop. TWO thumbs way up from this guy! Can't wait to go back again and get the 10 stamps so I can get my free one... Heads up! (double stamps on Tuesdays!!!)
Long thin bread – They use soft, long, thin bread for their sandwiches, so if you have a big appetite, you really need to order the 10" for $6. The 15" costs almost $10. Expect long lines during lunch hour and low on ambiance. Add a lge French fries or sm onion ring & 32oz soda for another $3. Many of the patrons are students, construction workers looking for an inexpensive meal. The onion rings are great as well as the chicken/cheese/mushroom sandwiches. Not a great dine-in atmosphere, better to take out unless you're really dressed down in your grubbies. You can get a card stamped and after 10 purchases, get a free sandwich.
Best cheese steak in the city! – Love this spot! Yummy cheese steak sandwiches. I recommend phoning in orders because it can get pretty busy in there during the lunch hour rush.
Cool – This is a great place to go if you have a cheesteak craving. Their sandwiches come in 7", 10", and 15" portions - and are priced accordingly. I ordered the philly cheesesteak and it was done just right. The steak fries are pretty friggin awesome too. The cooks and counter people are friendly. The only knock is that it closes pretty early so I won't be stopping by if I get the late night munchies.
East Coast Style – This is hands down the best Cheesesteak place on the west coast. Expect to wait in line but it's worth it.
Lee's stake is Cheesesteak – This place is awesome. Been there 30+ times and always great and consisitent. Blue collar place, good food. Go with the 15" with bacon. The chicken cheesesteak is also outstanding. Best Sunday lunch hangover cure food I've discovered as well. Curly fry combo? Absolutely. I get the 15" bacon Cheesestreak with hot peppers and love it.
A 15 incher will Philly you up... – Stopped by this week for some takeout, a 10" steak, garlic and mushroom cheesesteak for $8. Cheesesteaks come in three sizes, 7", 10" and 15". Ingredients are imported from Philadelphia; the steak is chopped very finely and layered with American cheese and a soft roll as a base. Whole, roasted garlic cloves were used to give it some kick. The sandwich is not very big and the steak, cheese and bun become one soft mooshy meal, delicious! I've never had an official Philly cheesesteak but this one was pretty good... But IMHO, I've had better!
East Coast! – By far the best place I have found out on the west coast. It is the closest thing to an east coast cheese steak.
