Large Marge's Philly Cheesesteaks

At Large Marge’s, the Philly cheesesteaks follow the textbook rules to a T. Every Philly cheesesteak should be constructed with a fresh roll that’s neither too hard nor too soft and still has plenty of chew; enough cheese, preferably Cheez Whiz, to require more than a single napkin; and finely chopped ribeye that’s never too tough to chew. As those outside of Philadelphia have discovered, not every cheesesteak subscribes to those rules -- in fact, most fail epically -- but Large Marge’s is the epitome of a perfect cheesesteak culture. These cheesesteaks are gleefully messy, served on Amoroso’s rolls and enlivened (if you want) with Flaming Poo, a tongue-searing hot sauce that captures the moxie of Marge, the affable owner who kindly brought brotherly love from Philly to Denver. And there’s an extra taste of Denver available in the green chile Marge’s serves as a side, an add-on or in a to-go cup.
