The best cheesesteaks in New Jersey, according to our listeners
March 24 is National Cheesesteak Day! It's a day I circle on my calendar every year. Any excuse to eat cheesesteaks is a good excuse where I'm concerned.
You always hear how Philadelphia has the market cornered on cheesesteaks. I've worked in the City of Brotherly Love for over 30 years and have been fortunate enough to sample their fine cheesesteaks but I've got to say, when it comes to cheesesteaks, New Jersey can more than hold its own.
The secret to a great cheesesteak, along with the meat which should be ribeye, is the bread. When you've got a great roll for which the delicious steak, cheese and whatever else you want to add in the way of peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc., you've got a great cheesesteak. So where are the great cheesesteaks in New Jersey?
