  1. So excited for the Cheesesteak Challenge! I’ve had a handful of different cheesesteaks here in Philly, but so far, Jim’s Steaks on South Street is my favorite. Still plenty of other places to try that are on my list, though! For a different interpretation on the classic, I’m a big fan of the Continental’s cheesesteak eggrolls.

  2. agree with Chris, Jim’s is my favorite as well! I also like the “Philly Style” sushi roll at Zama that has wagyu beef and provolone.

  3. I have to agree that for a traditional cheesesteak, Jim’s is the way to go. Nothing beats their super fresh ingredients, although I’m rarely up for waiting an hour to buy a sandwich that I eat in 3 minutes . Davios has an interesting cheesesteak “springroll,” but when I want a cheap, tasty, cheesesteak ready in under 5 minutes, I tend to just go to Mix since it’s right around the corner.

  4. Cheesesteaks going gourmet! Love that Unpaid is covering this!

  5. Favorite spot is John’s Roast Pork. Might be famous for its Roast Pork sandwich but the Cheesesteaks are my favorite.

  6. Favorite would have to be Tony Lukes, even though John’s Roast Pork is very close behind

  7. Thanks to everyone for participating! Winners have been notified via email.
