Philly Cheesesteak in Boston?

  • g

I always had a couple of cheesesteaks when visiting the City of Brotherly Love. I lived in PA then, and it was a quick drive down to the city. Friends were visiting from back home and wanted to know where to stop, here in Boston, for a good cheesesteak and I didn't have an answer. I'd like to get the lowdown for the next group that treks up this way. Is there a cheesesteak made in Boston that is as good as the original from South Philly?

      Thanks Coyote. I usually take newbies on the Freedom Trail. Some are here for a short time, business and all that, and they want to see the Historic part of town. Anything off the "beaten trail?"
