Big Al Costillo and his son Adam migrated from Philly to South Florida expecting to find some place that compared to their favorite local cheese-steak shop, Geno's. But they didn't. So they opened one in a tiny space in a strip mall between State Road 7 and the Sawgrass Expressway, intent on re-creating the famous Philly delicacy using sliced (not chopped!) rib eye, rolls flown in from the City of Brotherly Love, Cheez-Whiz (the ONLY authentic cheese for a cheese steak, although pretentious gourmets can request provolone or American), and loads of sautéed onions. The result is an incomparable sandwich for $7.25. Plus pizza steaks, chicken steaks, hot dogs, hoagies, and fries.
