Center City:

  • Chic Rittenhouse Square steakhouse Barclay Prime dishes out what is the city’s, and most likely, the world’s most expensive cheesesteak. For $120, guests enjoy a gussied-up sandwich stuffed with Wagyu rib-eye, foie gras, truffled cheese whiz and served on a fresh-baked sesame roll. This decadent creation comes, fittingly, with a half bottle of champagne. 237 S. 18th Street, (215) 732-7560, barclayprime.com
  • More famous for its creative menu of hoagies, Campo’s Deli cooks up a respectable traditional cheesesteak, and they ship to other cities all over the country as well. Located just a few blocks from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall in Historic Philadelphia, it’s the perfect stop for a post-tour meal. 214 Market Street, (215) 923-1000, camposdeli.com
  • Cheesesteaks get the spotlight at Cleavers, Rittenhouse Square’s ode to the Philly fave. Fillings—whether rib-eye, chicken or veggies—can be consumed via a roll, wrap or bowl, with topping options such as Sriracha aioli, blue cheese dressing, long hots and onion rings. 108 S. 18th Street, (215) 515-3828, cleaversphilly.com
  • In a city famous for its sandwiches, Jake’s Sandwich Board adds an element of creativity to its crowd-pleasing dishes. The cheesesteak, for example, is piled with slow-roasted brisket (not the usual rib-eye) and topped with mild provolone and caramelized onion. 122 S. 12th Street, (215) 922-0102; 125 S. 40th Street, (215) 921-9580, jakessandwichboard.com
  • Jim’s Steaks has four locations, but the classic smell of fried onions wafting down South Street makes that address the most memorable—and the most popular after a late night of partying on the famed strip. 400 South Street, (267) 519-9253; 431 N. 62nd Street, (215) 747-6617; Bustleton & Cottman Avenues, (215) 333-5467; 469 Baltimore Pike, Springfield, (61) 544-8400, jimssteaks.com
  • The circa 1892 and always busy Reading Terminal Market houses more than 80 vendors of farm-fresh produce, meats, cheeses, herbs and ready-to-eat meals—from Amish baked goods to Greek fare. It’s also a great spot to feast on Philly’s most famous sandwich: the cheesesteak. By George! Pizza, Pasta & Cheesesteaks, Carmen’s Famous Italian Hoagies & Cheesesteaks and Spataro’s Cheesesteaks are among the solid options here. 12th & Arch Streets, (215) 922-2317, readingterminalmarket.org
  • Founded in 2000, Sonny’s Famous Steaks offers a fresh, healthier take on the recipe, frying the 100% Angus beef in its own juices rather than in oil. The Historic Philadelphia shop uses locally baked Amoroso’s rolls and boasts a liberal ordering policy—meaning patrons shouldn’t feel pressured to order the cheesesteak in standard Philly fashion. 228 Market Street, (215) 629-5760, sonnyscheesesteaks.com
