Many people are calling today National Cheesesteak Day. That’s not entirely true. After way too much research back in 2014, we realized that the day that was supposed to be celebrated was National Cheesesteak Thursday. March 24th, 2014 and 2015 wasn’t a Thursday so we refused to play along with the made up holiday.
But today is March 24th and a Thursday, so today, we celebrate.
Here are the best cheesesteaks we’ve had in the past year, ranked.
* The Friz Wit is a creation of Food Underground’s Ari Miller. It combines grass fed, frizzled beef from Kensington Quarters, served with cheese from Hidden Hills Dairy and Birchrun Hills Farm and then topped with charred and caramelized onions and served on a Ba Le Bakery roll. On Monday, April 4th, the sandwich will be available at Kensington Quarters as part of KQ’s Philly Wine Week events.
