Philadelphia, PA - A cheesesteak is a classic American sandwich made up of ribeye steak sliced thin and cooked on a flat-top grill. A firm Italian roll is essential to the sandwich’s taste. Authentic Philadelphia cheesesteaks include a combination of meat, cheese, and bread that may or may not be topped with fried onions. Some of the best cheesesteaks outside of Philly stick to those traditions, while others take things a little further. We've rounded up 4 of the best that cut the March Cheesesteak Madness 2023 in the Philadelphia Region by Popular Vote.
