Steve’s Prince of Steaks in Philadelphia

order at the 1st window

The atmosphere sort of entails Philadelphia for me: don’t judge a book by it’s cover. From the outside it looks like a old school diner and even the furnishing inside isn’t that great but what caught my eye right away was the buffet of toppings (this one black pepper was calling my name. Like moth to a flame…)


I had the cheese steak with whiz, onions and mushrooms for $9. I watched the cook prepare my sandwich and I loved that each slice of thinly cut rib eye is grilled individually versus the mass cooking of chopped up steak at Jim’s by the guy who look like he can kill you w one punch.  There isn’t as much meat as John roast pork ( but then again, does anywhere?) but the amount was decent and DELICIOUS and I liked that they gave a ton more mushrooms than other places.

Joe has the cheesesteak with provolone, onions and mushrooms. This is a good option for those of you who don’t like cheese (what the heck is wrong with you people?) cuz the provolone was quite mild. He also noticed that there was a surprisingly good amount of mushrooms. He liked his sandwich so much he was debating getting a 2nd one while we were there.

The crispy cheesy fries filled him up though. I liked that the fries were much thicker than ishkabibble’s but not too thick that they became bland or soggy even w the cheese whiz on top.

This place rightly deserves 2007 best of Philly award and Food Network said this is THE place that locals go to. Why did it take me so many years to find you? Where have you been all my life?
