   Jason kept hearing about this place near us that supposedly had real Philly style cheese steaks. I'm always skeptical when restaurants claim that. Down here I had yet to encounter a true Philly style cheese steak. I've seen restaurants that claim they have them and then serve steak-ums in a hot dog bun or they have some weird tomato-base sauce on them or they've spiced the meat in a gyro sort of way or they use swiss cheese. They're just not right. Ever. And then we went to Delco's. First of all the bun is an Amorosa roll. That is THE Philly cheese steak bread. Use any other kind and it's not a Philly cheese steak. Now I prefer the meat Geno's style and not so ground up, but this meat was more like Pat's or Jim's, which is totally authentic and acceptable. The cheese and onions were mixed in with the meat, not put on top of the meat, but that's really just aesthetics. The flavor was really good! It's definitely the closest thing down here to a real Philly cheese steak. And the lady at the register was rude-ish so that was authentic too. We'll be back.

Yum! I miss cheese steaks!! There's a place in largo I used to go to all the time. Looks just like that :-)

Ooh, that sounds awesome. They don't use Cheez Whiz there, do they? Not that you had cheese on yours, but the fake stuff's gross.

You can request Cheez Whiz, but it's not the standard.
