The Cheesesteak: A Philadelphia Icon


Since its invention in the 1930s in South Philly, little about the cheesesteak has changed. Thinly sliced rib-eye steak is quickly browned on an oiled grill. Most folks like them with sauteed onions and peppers, other people prefer them topped with ketchup or pizza sauce, and some folks love them just as they are. And of course, the melted cheese on top. We use Monterrey Jack cheese, unless you prefer to order like the locals and get a Whiz Wit (Cheese Whiz and fried onions). However you choose to try yours, there’s one thing for sure, you will be glad you did.

Grande Olde Cheesesteak has been making these delicious sandwiches for over 30 years, offering the most authentic cheesesteak experience you can get outside of South Philly. Using top-quality ingredients like Liscio’s and Aversa’s rolls, Kraft Cheese Whiz, Boar’s Head deli meats, San Del peppers, hand cut mushrooms and thick Spanish sweet onions, even local Philadelphians agree it’s the tastiest cheesesteak you can get north of Federal Street.
