Most people might assume the best Philly cheesesteak is located in the city of brotherly love, but one cheesesteak expert says the best one can be found in New Jersey.

According to Bucks County Local News, Jim Pappas of Delaware has eaten over 275 cheesesteaks this past year. Jim is determined to become the most knowledgeable cheesesteak connoisseur.

Pappas is not an easy critic. Bucks Local News says that he only writes about restaurants he finds to be “objectively delicious.” He recently deemed Meatheadz on Business Route 1 in Lawrence to be the best cheesesteak in the entire region. Not just the best in New Jersey, but the best in the surrounding area, including Philadelphia.

Is he right? Where's your favorite?
