  1. People on this board give high marks to Sonny's in West Hollywood (maybe even Pembroke Pines... it's out there), but I was underwhelmed. The rolls were good, the meat is good, but it's just missing something - the whole is less than the sum of the parts.

    But your post gives me the opportunity to give a belated endorsement of Spanx Cheesesteak Factory, which is East of 95 on the South side of Oakland Park (right near the location of your original inquiry). I've been there twice, and what it lacks in ambiance and service it makes up for with a massive, delicious cheesesteak.
