Ten Best Cheesesteaks in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

The cheesesteak is one of the most well-known - and controversial - of sandwiches. The king of hoagies, subs, and sammiches, it truly is a thing of beauty, judged only by it's melty-mess-making ability.

What makes a cheesesteak?

Let us begin with the roll, that chewy Italian bread many out-of-towners will only import from the Amoroso bakery in Philadelphia itself. Then there's the beef: thin-sliced, flavor-griddled ribeye. The finish is up to you -- a pile of grilled onions, sautéed mushrooms or peppers. Last, there's the cheese, the final stand-off between those who choose melty white American or provolone over the infamous Cheez Whiz.
