Best Cheese Steak Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2014 - The Philly Cheesesteak Experience
The cheese steak was born in South Philadelphia, circa 1930, at Pat's King of Steaks. Decades later, you can find a version of this famous steak sandwich in nearly every city nationwide, but not every spot dishes out the real deal. But at the Philly Cheesesteak Experience in Fort Lauderdale, you'll get both Northern natives and a true Philly sandwich, all in one shot. The Strauss family — who together have more than 20 years' experience in the restaurant industry — began serving Broward County their authentic Philly cheese steaks six years ago, when they relocated to South Florida from New Jersey, opening a humble outpost at the Pompano Festival Flea Market Mall food court. Today, though, you'll find this masterpiece of meat at their new eatery off Commercial Boulevard, where more than 100 sandwiches — and more than 200 pounds of beef — are ordered daily. It starts with the grill, where paper-thin slices of sirloin are chopped and seared alongside piles of tender grilled onions. All that juicy goodness is layered into a soft, chewy roll, shipped straight from Philly's Amoroso bakery. It's topped with a good dousing of hot, melty Cheez Whiz (although provolone, American, and mozzarella are also options). Try ordering yours "whiz wit' " — official Philly street slang for "with Cheez Whiz and onions."
