A Cheesesteak from Northern California

Jersey's Cheesesteak

Here's a random cheesesteak that I picked up from a booth at one of the many art and wine festivals running in the South Bay this weekend. I was a bit surprised by how little meat was in this thing. Well, I've never been to Philly, so I am definitely no pro on how a "real" cheesesteak should be.

Still, it was extra greasy and tasty with all of the onions and cheese inside, so it did the job. I think a run of the US East Coast is in order soon either way...getting a cheesesteak sandwich in California is like trying to get a bagel out here.

If you're nearby, you can have one! I live in SF and this is the cheese steak standard bearer...

I had a Philly cheesesteak at Steak Escape in Denver airport during a layover last month. Delish :-)

BTW, was in Millenia Walk last Sunday & found that the Philly place has been replaced by Pho 24 from Vietnam!

Geno's is terrible, too dry, Pat's (across from Geno's) is way better, or try Tony Luke's (Front & Oregon), which is up there among my favs. Jim's on south street would also be a good choice. Lots of good choices, but I cant stand Geno's only the tourists venture that way.
