Find me the best cheesesteak in NYC

The title says it all--what's the best?
Price/location no object, Brooklyn is OK.
IMO, Carl's is vastly, vastly superior to 99 Miles. Carl's has better meat and their bread is great.
I've tried all the ones previously mentioned which are all good. However, none of them in my opinion can even come close to Tony Luke's on 43rd/9th. Not only great cheesesteaks but their roast pork w/broccoli rabe is one of the best sandwiches I've had. All their ingredients are trucked down I95 from the original Philly location.
I've tried Tony Lukes and 99 Miles also, a couple of times. Tony Lukes's meat was tough, the bun was soggy, and it was a mess way before I got halfway done. 99 Miles was better, but Carl's is the place. Great bun, good meat/onions/whiz ratio, and their fries are excellent.
