Best cheesesteak in Dallas and surrounding metropolitan areas.

Just had a Jersey Mike's cheesesteak. Had to be the best one I ever ate in Dallas. Where are some other good cheesteaks? Please, for the love of God, nobody say Texadelphia.
Fred's is great, but if you're a wiz person, you won't get any there. I'm not, so it's ok - but Billadelphia is my favorite (Hwy 157 off of I-183) and he'll do it either way. There's not really any seating at Billadelphia, so plan for takeout if you go there.
There's a cheesesteak place downtown at Lamar and Ross -- it's a little hole-in-the wall joint and I don't know its name (something like "Philly Cheesesteaks," I think) but, having spent a fair amount of time in Philly some years ago, I can say that theirs are about as close to the real thing as you are likely to find in Texas. Big, too. Also: one order of fries is plenty for at least two people.
I've been away for awhile, but what about Galligaskin's? I used to love them. Of course, time changes most things.
I used to go to Fred's on Inwood before it closed down a couple years ago...Is the one in Plano still open? I LOVED Fred's I wish it was still in Dallas.
Jersey Mike's is not too bad for hoagies and steaks but it is a chain...their steaks are much better than New England Cheesesteak though...
Lenny's (another east coast chain) in downtown Dallas is better for hoagies but I decided against the Cheesesteak after they asked me if I wanted lettuce, tomato and ketchup on it...Better hoagies than anybody though...
I am a mortgage broker and I speak at a lot of sales meetings for realtors, I bring a few trays of Jersey Mikes hoagies and they are always a big hit!
Subway & Quiznos aren't even close, they are for the mainstream with no taste...
