How do you like yopur cheesesteaks, chopped up or in medallions/slabs? I go both ways.

Regarding the 'best': There is no 'best,' it all depends on personal preference. It's not a sporting competition. lol
My best or favorite is whatever one I'm in the mood for at the time. Too many people waste too much time trying to convince others their stupid cheesesteak/hoagie/pizza/seafood/Italian/steak joint is better than everybody else's. I like most places ... OINK, OINK, OINK!
Went to Al's for the first time today. The Rueben was delicious and a pretty fat sandwich at a great price. My daughter had an Italian Hoagie and was satisfied as well. Also enjoyed their cake. How are the cheese-steaks? All their prices seem less then most. Lots of people in and out.
Thanks for the recommendation.

I never had a steak from there, but DeNofa's down the Ave, near Tyson, are pretty damn good. So are their 'Italian' sandwiches.


Since you know the area, try Jack's @Hegerman and Wellington for an Italian hoagie. Trust me on this.


How much was the Reuben, about $5.50?

I looked it up and I saw they're now open until 7 ... TBH, I had a cheesesteak from John's some four years ago and it I thought it kind of sucked. The roll is all wrong for a steak sandwich and the meat was bland and rubbery, kind of like eating a tendon. I'll give them another shot with the pork.

Haven't been there in a while. Is closing a fixed time now? I know they would close when they ran out of bread.

Also they used to open quite early in the morning; they make breakfast sandwiches.
