best cheesesteak from a lunch truck/daytime vendor

i was wondering where you all go for a delicious, greasy steak when you're at work (or during the day when you're playing hookie). my favie truck in university city has gone and i am looking for other options. i will travel to center or south philly to satisfy my craving, eating a cheesesteak from a lunch truck can be so much more satisfying than even john's (probably because you aren't distracted by the roast pork and then struck with anguish that you ordered the wrong sandwich...heh.).

i think this will also be helpful to tourists since we don't want to keep sending them to pat's and geno's when just 20 steps from the liberty bell/independence hall/the palestra/penn's campus you can get a damn fine steak.

thank you!

  1. If you are in University City, are you close to Abner's? Not a truck, but I hear they have a passable steak.

    And if I'm playing hookie, I'm going to John's...that's the only time they are open!!
