Today, we visit the SPOT Burgers truck at The Porch at 30th Street Station. Yes, SPOT Burgers has gotten plenty of rightful ink for their hamburgers but you cannot sleep on owner Josh Kim’s cheesesteaks.

Kim, who has had SPOT Burgers cart since February of 2012 does the cheesesteak right. He takes fresh sirloin that he slices himself, seasons it well with salt and pepper and then cooks it up on the griddle in his small cart.
This is one of the best cheesesteaks we've come across in a long time. Well seasoned, excellent and ample amount of beef. Seek out a SPOT Burger cheesesteak now.
