Philly is a big city, and I can get a cheesesteak in any neighborhood. Are these 5 places so good that I should drive 30-40 minutes for them, or can I keep going to Overbook Pizza?

Unless you would be a connoisseur of cheesesteaks, I would say yes. There are many good places in many different neighborhoods. There is nothing rocket science about the making of a cheesesteak. Although quality of meat and rolls plays a part, the individuals making them matter as well.
Personally in the city I probably do Tony Lukes more then any of the others, and can say that at Tony Lukes they do not always taste the same. Sometimes the roll is crisper then others. Sometimes there is more cheese then others.

Now for something unique and a little polish, I like the Kielbasa Cheesesteak they offer at the Gaul Malt House in Port Richmond.
