Bethesda steak & cheese

  • 3

Just got one from South Street Steaks, and must say that Philadelphia Mike's is much better. More tender and more flavorful meat, and vastly superior roll.

My two favorite steak & cheese joints are Continental in Kensington and Mike's in Hillandale. Philly Mike's is number three.

  1. I haven't been to Continental in dozens of years, and am amazed that it is still there. I'm going to have to make a nostalgia stop in my near future....

      I first went to Continental when I was about 11, almost 38 years ago. Now I take my 11yo son. He loves the plain pizza and the french fries. I don't care for the food so much anymore, but I love giving the place my money. (Same is true with Tastee Diner in Bethdesda)

        In the mid 60's my older siblings turned me on to Continental. Through Junior High at KJH Kensington and high school this remained the number on go-to spot.

        My last visit was quite a number of years ago. The memories were far better than the food, but the Steak & cheese, onions, mushrooms was still pretty tasty. And the seasoned salt Fries were just the same!
