Philadelphia - Best Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak

  • 7

I'm a fan of most things "steaked". Cheesesteak, Chicken Cheesesteak, etc.

I think my favorite is the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteak.

So where's the best one in Philly? My vote thus far has to be for Real Pizza in Narberth.

  1. Well Ishkabibble's claims to have invented the chicken cheesesteak, so I guess theirs is worth a try. I've never had it, but their fries and a Gremlin are reason enough for me to go there!

      I've had their chicken cheesesteak, it's not good.

      ETA: I don't really like cheesesteaks in general and think the roast pork with rabe and provolone is our city's true sandwich, so I'm predisposed to not like ishkabibble's version I guess.

      1. There's a dive-ish diner at the corner of 47th and Baltimore that claims to have the best buffalo chicken cheesesteak. (I don't know; the guy was showing me a newspaper article ... and there were people ordering it for breakfast ...)

        They do serve a mean breakfast, so maybe the chicken cheesesteak claims has merits?

        1. THE WORKS! Their buffalo chicken cheesesteaks are so good. They have a few locations, including the Northeast and Springfiled, Delco.

          1. Hmmm, so what are the qualities of 'the best' buffalo chicken cheesesteak?

            - Using a high quality blue-cheese dressing instead of "Sysco-in-a-drum"?
            - Quality of the chicken? Is it the pre-formed loaf or real chicken?
            - The wing sauce is key, I guess that could vary widely from place to place.

            I'm curious since I love very spicy wing sauce and some places might just use a splash of tabasco.
