Looking to find a good cheese steak over on the Easton side of the area. It seems that the Lehigh Valley version of the cheese steak is the diced up mini meat with some sort of sauce and pickles. That is not a Philly Cheese Steak. I am looking for something thats sliced ribeye, similiar to what you would find at Geno's or Pat's. Lee's Hoagie House was pretty good, but thats over in Emmaus, and I dont live anywhere near there anymore. Tommy's on South 4th street was good as well, but unfortunately they are long gone and replaced by Mateys.

Stavs, no suggestions for Easton but just want to disagree with you about places in Lehigh Valley not knowing how to make a Philly style cheesesteak. Our local Italian restaurant in Coopersurg, Ecco Domani, makes a great cheesesteak. Ecco Domani Italian Restaurant & Catering:

Is it diced up mini-meat or nice slices?

I'm anxious to hear what people recommend because my husband who used to work and live in Philly is complaining about not being able to find a good Philly style cheesesteak.........he was saying it's impossible to find this side of PA.

Surely you jest! What do you recommend then? A blanket statement like that doesnt really help out. If they are so bad, give us an alternative to form our own judgement.

Stavs, in the meantime maybe you can run over to R & R Provisions and buy some meat & make your own?
