Taste of Philly is a little storefront operation that looks, feels and smells more like a real Philly joint than some places actually operating in sight of Independence Hall -- from the cramped seating (six tables set nearly on top of each other) and counter that opens straight onto the tiny galley kitchen, to the Tastykakes by the register and the birch beer in the cooler by the door. The walls are hung with the requisite East Coast paraphernalia -- Eagles pennants and framed posters of Rocky Balboa -- and, most important, both the cheesesteaks and the hoagies are enough to send blue-state refugees into paroxysms of homesickness. With every sandwich made on an Amaroso roll (the gold standard of hoagie rolls), stacked thick and well dressed by the sandwich artists in the kitchen, a lunch here is exactly what the name promises: a Taste of Philly for those lonesome for the East Coast.

Large Marges is the real deal! If you want to taste areal South Philly Cheesesteaks, try Large Marges, its a smallfamily owned business that has Wheatridge Colorado talking. Stop in and meet Marge, yeah, she is always there! See for yourself why everyone is getting hooked on this place! Enjoy.....

Large Marge�s is the best restaurant around! The Cheesesteaks are addictive and melt in your mouth. We (Co-workers and I) make weekly trips to Large Marge�s to get our fix. The service is great and the food is made with quality ingredients and wisdom only a true Philly native could give! Thanks to Marge, Deborah, Shaun and the whole crew. I love Large Marge's!!!

I drive pretty far to eat Large Marge's Philly's, they just melt in your mouth. She starts with the leanest best steak she can find, and your steak is grilled to perfection while you wait. Seriously if you haven't tried one of these, head on over, Large Marge's is Fabulous!!!!!!!!!

I've been eating Marge's cheesesteaks for year. There is no comparison between her sandwiches and any others I've eaten. Hers win hands down.

Originally from Philly, Margie has hands down, the absolute best cheesesteaks bar none! Having eaten at Gino's and Pats for so many years, Margie is truly the very best! As Mike stated and I quote "If she doesn't deserve Best Cheesesteak Experience, Frank Rizzo himself will turn in his grave!" Mike, you are absolutely correct.

Congrats, Margie, you are "my" winner!

If anyone could bring South Philly to Denver, Margie can! South Philly raised, member of a String Band, and I believe a Fancy AND a Comic Brigade, went to Goretti, and has the world experience of the military to know how to put together a world-class cheesesteak shop. Her shop has authentic South Philly memoribilia; she even has a Mummers suit (don't call it a costume!) there. And her web page plays "Wildwood Days"!If she doesn't deserve Best Cheesesteak Experience, Frank Rizzo himself will turn in his grave!
