Yeah, I've been to Sonny's a number of times, and better than any other steak i've had. Best meat - they slice their own ribeye on-site, maybe that makes a difference. Haven't been to Chi*nks / Joe's yet, however. That is one of the few i haven't been to.

Joe's (Ch1nk's) is definitely a righteous sandwich.

I pass Paesano's all the time, but never tried them. Isn't Bobby Flay a big fan? I'd be more than happy to compare their pork to Tony Luke. So many sandwiches, so little time.

I think my recommendation for Chickie's is a home run. You being a .375 average in the '80 Series can appreciate that.

Honestly, I think the official food of Philly should either be the Pork Italian or the Hoagie. I love steaks, but eat a lot more of the other two sandwiches. I only eat steaks a couple times a year. Never with wiz either (yuk), provolone for me.

One of the reasons I love Philadelphia is because intelligent people can debate the best sandwiches, and it's no harm or foul. The only town I've been to that loves comfort food as much as we do is Chicago. Ok, New York too.

Can, let's say Orlando, have this debate?

I haven't tried enough cheese steaks in philly but duffy's subs in orlando was prepared like you mentioned. I wouldn't eat a cheese steak any other way. Otherwise lol orlando is 99% chain restaurants as if you are living in an amusement park.

Being as you're an astute baseball fan and sandwich connisseur, I'll let you in on this one - Jack's hoagies @Hegerman and Wellington in Tacony. Try the original Italian, I guarantee you it can hang with any hoagie in South Philly.
Also up that way is DeNofa's - their chicken Italian has it all over Tony Luke's.

Have you ever had a train wreck po boy from Beck's in the RTM? Awesome.

I mentioned in a previous post, the best steak I had outside of the Delaware Valley was in a bar in Atlanta, go figure. I tried it out for sh1ts and giggles, so I could criticize it. It was awesome. Unfortunately, the rest of the food I've experienced (been there four times) in Atlanta is dreary, except for a great seafood place (Atlanta Fish Market) in Buckhead.

A shame, because I consider Atlanta much more of a real city than Orlando. No disrespect if you moved here from FL. My parents retired to Ocala, so I'm familiar with Orlando.

I do go through Tacony fairly frequently, cutting though on Levick. I'll try to give a both a whirl, but if I eat every great sandwich in the area, gross obesity and heart disease would be my fate .

As much as I love RTM (a real super duper Philly jewel), I always seem to get stuck getting grub from the same places. I have to say that I love Jack McDavid's Down Home Diner, and always seem to camp there. Believe it or not, I've never had Bassett's, and I've been going there for 40 years. So shoot me.

I know I need to expand my horizons at RTM, and promise to try the po boy at DeNofa's.

Hey, I thought YOU were the one looking for new sandwiches.
