    Mama’s is a great gooey mess. Leo’s is pretty good as well. Huge sandwiches.

  • CEF

    Mamas, Fruscos, and hell yes on Claymont in Delaware.

    All awesome.

  • WCBC_Frank

    The author should head on down to the West Chester area, because the Pepper Mill should be listed.
    Gooey, chooped rib-eye deliciousness with the perfect amount of fried onions….the best place to cheesesteak in Chester County.

    Finally Donkey’s gets some recognition. They’re the best.
