Eating a busy, hyped up, new restaurant with untrained workers? Classic rookie mistake.

I'd wait a couple of weeks. The casual workers with a poor work ethic will wash out. The good workers will get up to speed, and the "hafta be first" customers will drift away back to their normal lunches, and you will get a better sandwich in shorter time. Either that or they'll close because they suck, and that'll save you the trouble, too.

Rocco's food stand at the Woodside Home Depot makes great cheesesteaks plus he has a location in the Philly Home Depot by the Water Gap. He also does the street fairs, and has the stand there.

Our Diners actually make great cheesesteaks too. I dont think we need this Tony Luke. Plus I never hear of them. In Philly, there is Geno's, Pats, and that place inside the Reading Terminal Market.

What I want is Montreal Smoked Meat.

Nah, cheesesteaks can only taste so good. I have had good cheesesteaks here.

True, true

Every fast casual, and fast food sandwich shop offers cheesesteaks. Diners have pretty good cheesesteaks. The ones that care at least.

I can make a decent substitute on the griddle with Steak-umms, Muenster cheese, a nice roll and some spicy tomato sauce,


So not overly complicated and any bar owner with his salt CAN offer them, but it only seems to happen in Pennsylvania.
Probably because they dont care too much. Diners in NJ have huge menus. They take better care with burgers, and club sandwiches etc etc. Philly Cheesesteaks just arent always on the mind of their typical customers.

Best steak sandwich ever is made by Chinese Cubans, in a old school lunchonette. For those who haven't had a ropa Vieja sandwich on Cuban bread,you missing out.
I have never seen one of these chinese cubans luncheonettes let alone a chinese cuban in NYC before, or even in Union City where there is supposedly a Cuban enclave.

What I want here in NYC is Earl of Sandwich, and Eggspectations.

Who has this kind of money to throw away on a cheesesteak chain, and opening it up in the most expensive and brutally finicky, when it comes to taste, city like NYC?

Must be some rich kid with connections to bankers giving him money to throw away.

You appear to be correct, and is not too far from where I work sometimes.

Take my word for it, upstart sandwich shops staffed by morons and teenagers see the same kind of intense concentration and inevitable failures as a fledgling space program.
