Sandwiches Philly's Best:

  • Cheesesteaks: Everyone agrees that the cheesesteak, invented by Pat Olivieri in 1930, requires thinly sliced beef and a crusty roll, but the always-tough choice between provolone, American and Cheez Whiz is a matter of great debate. Same goes for the best place to eat the famed sandwich. The age-old feud between Pat’s King of Steaks and its across-the-street rival Geno’s Steaks draws thousands of visitors to 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue for taste-offs. Local shops like Dalessandro’s Steaks and Hoagies, John’s Roast Pork, Pudge’s Steak and Hoagie, Tony Luke’s and Jim’s Steaks have equal numbers of devoted fans—and Jim’s even ships steaks out of town. High-end interpretations of the city’s humble sandwich await at restaurants such as The Continental Restaurant & Martini Bar and its sibling The Continental Mid-town, which whip up a clever cheesesteak eggroll with a spicy sriracha ketchup dip. Rittenhouse Square’s Barclay Prime offers a $120 wagyu ribeye, truffled cheese and foie gras concoction that comes with a half-bottle of champagne. Also See... The Ultimate Philly Cheesesteak Guide
  • Hoagies: The hoagie, Philly’s answer to the sub or hero, can be traced back to South Philadelphia’s European immigrant population. The sizeable sandwich comes stuffed with fresh meats, cheeses and veggies—or some variation of these ingredients. The quintessential Italian hoagie, for example, is layered with cured ham and salami, cheese, oil, oregano, lettuce, tomato and more. The bread is critical too: Amoroso’s and Sarcone’s bakeries are the among most popular purveyors of rolls in the city. Sarcone’s Deli sells its own sandwiches out of a Bella Vista storefront. One of the biggest local sandwich chains, Lee’s Hoagie House has built a small empire with its special house-spiced oil and expansive selection. Still more creative combinations await at Campo’s Deli and Tony Luke’s. New school purveyor Matt and Marie’s delivers a fresh take with choices such as the Italian Stallion, topped with coppa and salami, locally made Claudio’s provolone, house-pickled peppers and pepperoncini aioli.

  • Roast Pork Sandwiches: While it’s not quite as well-known as the cheesesteak or hoagie, the roast pork sandwich is nevertheless a regional delicacy born from Italian-American cookery. Tender, oven-roasted pork, usually shaved or chopped, gets layered with melted sharp provolone cheese and garlicky sautéed broccoli rabe. John’s Roast Pork, Tony Luke’s, George’s Sandwich Shop and DiNic’s Roast Pork all deliver classic renditions as well. For a high-end version, High Street on Market adds fermented rabe and a homemade semolina roll, while Paesano’s Arista innovates with fiery longhots and pulled suckling pig meat. Also See..
