Cheesesteak...Capriotti's or Phillys Best? This may start an interesting debate topic...I hope!

Ive had both, and When it comes to Cheesesteak, I'll prefer Capriotti's over P.B. anyday. More bang for your buck!

What's your preference between the two, and why? Any other great cheesesteak sandwich shops in socal you'd like to share?

  1. I find their turkey a bit dry and flavorless. Their bread is the weakest link though, not good at all. If I had to get a sandwich from them, it would be the with turkey and coleslaw...


            1. re: JosephEBacon

              +6 on Boo's.

              In addition, the cheesesteak @ Beer Belly in Ktown, while not quite as good as Boo's, is pretty good (it's also a couple $'s more than Boo's). But when you add in the availability of some great craft beer to go along w/ your cheesesteak----it makes up the difference (at least to me). I'm not sure if they only offer the cheesesteaks on Saturday afternoons or if they've added it to their regular menu.

          1. Big Mike's.

            (Old topic is old ;-)

            1. What about Papa Jakes Sub Shop in BH? I am California born and bred, but theirs seem to be like the ones I've had at Pat's and Tony Luke's.

              1. Check out the South Philly Experience trucks. Often in West LA or Santa Monica or Grand Street downtown. Check out their locations on Twitter.
