The original six-seater takeout place on Colorado Boulevard was founded by a guy from Pennsylvania, and even though it's now owned by folks from south Jersey, they still know how to make a real Philadelphia cheesesteak. It's a great sandwich in every way, from the caramelized onions to the chopped steak to the American cheese (or whiz, if you prefer). As an added bonus, there's a small selection of Tasty Kakes available at the counter.
