Any decent Philly Cheesteaks?

I used to get cheesesteak fixes at the place on Columbus near B'way at least once a month. Then it was sold and the name changed to Busters. They cleanned it up a bit, but the cheesesteaks were still good. Then something happened around 6 months ago. They are no longer good. The bread for one thing, seems different, tasteless. Looks the same, though. I keep going back every once in a while and it's just no good. I can't get anything out of the guy's who work there. I keep hoping to see the owner, but he was only there when it first opened. Now I need a new place. and I saw someone mention these at Mel's Diner. I I do not like Mel's, but am tempted to go in the slim hope of a decent cheesesteak.
Try the place on Divisadero between Sutter & Bush, east side of the street. Can't recall the name, but it's quite good.
there is a philly cheesesteak shop on Durant Avenue east of Telegraph (one block from campus in Berkeley). I haven't eaten there, but have witnessed friends do so with expressions connoting pleasure.
