While I was up in NJ/PA this weekend I knew I had to get my hands on a real cheesesteak. I don't get up to the area often enough so when a cheesesteak opportunity presents itself I have to take advantage of the situation.
Luckily, my dining companions were in complete agreement and we ended up getting steaks from Gaetano's in Willingboro, NJ, one of my long-time favorite South Jersey steak shops during my residency in the area.
I got the regular, which featured a massive helping of chopped steak, fried onions, mushrooms and extra cheese all on a delicious, crusty, slightly chewy seeded roll. Which led to a long discussion about how the bread here in MD stinks and you could never have such a hefty meat bomb without the awesomeness completely soaking through the hinge of the roll and depositing the entire sandwich on your lap.
Definitely a Top 10 cheesesteak in my book and I'll have to get with Chris and see if we can come up with our definitive list ranking our favorite cheesesteak spots.
