Excellent cheesesteaks near Doylestown

Rheta Jul 5, 2009 05:56 PM

Going to be in the area in Aug. We moved away from SE PA about 15 years ago and still have family there. When we visit family we have to get our cheesesteak fix. We'll be getting off the PA Tnpk in Quakertown and traveling to Doylestown then south down 611. Thanks chowhounders!

    I've lived in Buckingham for 3.5 years. I haven't found a ton of good cheesesteaks. For a decent, straight forward one, I would suggest Buckingham Pizza.

      Buckingham Pizza is a possibility. I read some rave reviews of their cheesesteak. Thanks for the suggestion.

      Nat's. It's predominantly a pizza place, but my favorite thing to get there is the cheesesteak along with a side of onion rings.

          I used to have a steak weekly when I was in high school at Sal's in the Warrington Mews Shopping Center (on 611). I remembered them being really good as a kid, so I decided to stop by for lunch when I was in the area about a year ago to grab a cheesesteak. It was just as I remembered, greasy, nicely caramelized onions, cheese melted in with the steak on a pretty good roll. Not too shabby. Don't expect any ambiance.....it's properly devoid of any pretense.

            Sal's would be right on the way to where we're going. Thanks.

              I'm a big fan of the Steak and Hoagie Factory (wish one would open near Blue Bell). They have the best rolls around.

              There's one in Warminster (Street Road) and Doylestown (Main Street).

            Altomonte's, 812 N. Easton Rd. (which is 611 I think, I'm terrible with stuff like that), Doylestown would be my choice. Even better, their roast pork with broccoli rabe and aged provolone!

              Thanks everyone. We have many options now. I can always count on Chowhounders!

              Joseph's Italian Market. If you come down 313 to Doylestown, you will pass it. You will come to a traffic light at Fifth Street near Perkasie, down the hill from the light at 563. There will be a gas station (Ben Scholl's) on your right & Joseph's is attached to that. Great steaks! If you remember the area, it is across Fifth Street from what used to be Stan's Stop but before you get to Roger's (which isn't Roger's Roadstand any more).

                Thanks Wandasue. Has Josephs always been there? I think I can picture where it is. I definitely remember Rogers. I think I turned left there to go to Clemens Market.I don't remember Joseph's though. Thanks again for your suggestion. Only a week to go for my cheesesteak fix!

                  Josephs was originally in Dublin near the Wawa at the 313/113 intersection. That building is now gone. I think they've been in the current location for almost 10 years, but i could be wrong. Enjoy your visit!

                I would also recommend Sal's for cheesesteaks.

                  I second the Steak and Hoagie Factory on Main St in Doylestown. Open till ? I have often stumbled in after enjoying myself in town to get my fix of a good cheesesteak, and I'm from Philly so my standards are high! Their rolls do rock!
