BEST CHEESESTEAK Sandwich in Philadelphia! Philly Cheesesteak Tour

Published on Aug 7, 2018
So glad that I got to do a Cheesesteak Tour when I visited Philadelphia this time because when you are in Philly, you got to eat some good Philly Cheesesteak!!
Cheesesteak sandwiches have always been one of my favorite kind of sandwiches, that's why I had to make it my mission to see what the best Cheesesteak Sandwich that Philly has to offer!
Not only did I get to taste the cheesiest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich that was oozing out with cheese, but I also got to try one of the biggest Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches too! This Cheesesteak sandwich is filled with an insanely amount of toppings, full of juicy seasoned meat, fried onions, peppers and most of all, and it has so much cheese!
Mmm, thank you, Philadelphia for your fantastic Cheesesteak Sandwiches, I will be back for more of that cheesy sandwich!
1)John’s Roast Pork
2)Jim’s Steaks
4)Max’s Steaks

  • What's your favorite Philly Cheese spot?

  • I keep telling myself I can't keep watching these because it is making me so hungry. However your reactions to what you are eating and the pure joy as you are discussing what you are eating has made me really enjoy your show. Thank you for sharing 😃

  • At 6:56 he says cheese cake instead of cheese steak 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • Dalessandros!!!!! Hands down, thee best


  • I am gonna die watching you eat. Lol Btw, you are eating for me . After my surgery recovery, I will get back to eating solid food and will eat something rich and delicious. You have inspired me to rejuvenate my polyamorous relationship with cheese steaks and food in general

  • Being allergic to sesame be like 😐


  • JIM'S STEAKS...all the way.

  • It's strange but I don't see the appeal in the bread, cheese and meat combo on its own.. It needs some vegetables to be tasty ...hah. I'm not from USA and we don't really have this kind of food so maybe that's why.

  • 1) Dalessandros 1b) Joe's Steak + Soda 2) Steve's Prince of Steaks 3) Jims 4) Chubbys 5) Donkeys Place in New Jersey Johns Roast Pork is awesome, but I really cant get past the top 6 i have listed

  • Max’s is my favorite place that is literally the first place I go when I go home

  • Cheesesteak looked great but onions were too big for my taste.

  • Bruh! You're killin me. I need to visit Philly.

  • Wow they look delicious

  • D’Alessandros in Roxborough

  • I feel so bad for laughing when you dropped the meat on the ground

  • You need to try Tony Lukes.

  • You need to be on Food Network doing these types of shows.

  • The whimper went he first piece of beef fell off at Max's lmfao!!


  • No ishkabibbles or steves you gotta try them next time your in philly those are easily the best cheesesteak spots in the city of philadelphia

  • OMG i had drink sitting on the same table as he is.. the shop was closed tat time

  • I ate a pizza in Philadelphia and tat was absolutely lit af.. never had such a great one

  • I actually went to Cleaver's and it was great.

  • maxxs

  • pickles on a cheesesteak is a damn crime. who the hell told you to put that crap on there?

  • John's roast pork is still my favorite. Prince Steaks is 2 and jims is 3. Now if you want flavor explosion try a trepleta from El Punto. That's still my hangover cure spot

  • No Pats or Gino’s?

  • This guy has a bottomless stomach

  • YOU WENT TO PHILADELPHIA?! 😭 I LIVE THERE, I COULD HAVE SEEN HIM. Time for me to go to all these places now.

  • Omg Phillies are amazing GGG

  • My favorite Cheesesteak growing up, was the original Gaetano's in Willingboro, NJ. Unfortunately, I now live in Texas, where a truly good Cheesesteak does not exist. 😢😢😢😢😢

  • Joes steaks!!!!!!!!!!

  • Steve's prince of steaks my favorite. But they are all delicious. Never met a cheese steak I didn't like.

  • I need to try this dam

  • Nothing special been here it was plain

  • Pat's cheesesteak is hands down my personal favorite when it comes to cheesesteak.

  • this video makes me wonder how the cheesesteak joints here in vegas compare to the cheesesteak joints in Philly

  • Hi Mike: You're a true legend! Have you ever thought about doing a video about food in Mexico? I can give you the royal tour.

  • Your eating that larger cheese steak wrong! You’re suppose to pinch the top with one hand and the other hand is at the bottom. That’s why the toppings were falling off

  • I have to speak up here! In the early 1990's, I was a short order cook here in San Francisco at a place that is still open called, The Cheese Steak Shop. It's a San Francisco Bay Area chain owned and operated by a Philadelphia native named Keith. He taught us the original way to cook and prepare a cheese steak: oil on the grill, a portion of sliced white onion, a portion of sliced sirloin steak, chop up the steak and onion until minced, shape lengthwise to either a 6" or 15" hoagie roll, cover with slices of Provolone cheese, cover with hoagie roll for one minute to let cheese melt, scoop up and over, sprinkle on top with sweet and hot cherry peppers and serve. The owner flies the Amoroso hoagie rolls in from Philly too!

  • How many stomachs does this dude have?

  • Need to learn to hold a sub man

  • How does he eat so much in one day! omg! haha

  • None stop eating machine!

  • MAX'S all day. He missed GIOVANNI'S, PAGANO'S & EXPLORER'S DEN.

  • Cheesesteak is so much betterr with shrooms, but hardly anyone offers them

  • its orgasmic!! i live in Miami Beach and i now know i need to get home . i want to pound a cheese steak

  • Love Johns Roast Pork stand great video man.

  • roast??? they mean stew maybe?

  • Idk why everyone soooo hype about our cheesestakes🤔😂I lived in philly and people dont be soooo hype and craving them like that

  • We got the best cheese stakes dont @ me

  • Lmbo great share. Take us back again every year!

  • Mike, will I ever hear you say this isn't that good 😂

  • Blessings to d,I hope you had an awesome time in Philadelphia! It seems like you really enjoyed the cheesesteak sandwiches you tried out! 🙏

  • True Cheesesteaks MUST have a roll that has substance. When you bite into it there has to be resistance. Wimpy rolls are not allowed. I’m fortunate enough I was able to procure a nice used (over $500 new) meat slicer for $50. The older gentleman just lost interest in making his own jerky.

  • When you rolled up to Max's I knew you were legit!

  • Have you put together a tour map or a live tour with subscribers?!!

  • 😵🤤🤤🤤🤤🤤 omfg

  • OMG you should come to Houston!

  • if you ever go to fort Wayne go to powers Hamburgs and eat

  • I know people talk about food porn, but I'm only up to the first cheese steak and this actually does border on actual porn. Wow.

  • Mr. Strickly! I know you like/love thick girls from all the/that meat you love to eat!!!😍😘

  • I plan on visiting Philly sooner or later, so this video is a huge help to look into which cheeseteaks places to try! Can't wait to try the John's roast pork sandwich too!!

  • Govindas has vegan “chicken” cheese steaks!!!

  • Jim's Steak was good but NOT worth it for waiting an hour for a sandwich.

  • 12:30 I swear, I'd think I'm watching porn if I had my eyes closed...

  • Angry birds nightmare LOL

  • How can you have a philly cheesesteak with provolone? It's ALWAYS Cheese wiz!

  • how do you eat so much bro?

  • 👓👍🏼FINALLLLLLYYYY! Food videos that are NOT IN ASIA OR NY!=. LOL😋😙😙✈️✈️✈️😋 👍🏼🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  • one of my favorite US-tvrs out of all my subscribers

  • Mikey you are a foodie god! youre reviews are amazing but what amazes me the most is how much you can eat in a day or a sitting! Keep up the good work and come to Australia one day!

  • You should try "Joe's Steaks, it use to be called "Chinks", because that is the owners Nickname. But for some reason the owners were pressured by people that find everything racist, and the funny thing is, the Chinese people didn't have a problem at all with the name, because it's the Owners Nick name, and they had that same name for over 30 years. lol. It's crazy how some people can find everything racist, even if the race of people didn't have any problem with it.

  • Do you leave leftovers to your cameraman or you keep him a bit hungry?

  • I was born and raised in Philly. And I must say, other places and states may claim they have great cheese steaks, but Philly has mastered the Cheese Steak, it can not be done better anywhere else but Philly. Have you ever been out of Philly and tried a cheese steak? If you have, you will know no where beats Philly with making cheese steaks. A lot of places out of Philly like to use the leanest meat possible, which makes the steak dry and no flavor. It's one of the many mistakes the places out of Philly make.

  • Cheese Steak Dumplings anyone..!!!

  • So much beef was wasted while filming this video that i got beef with Mikey Chen now..!!!

  • Lol idk how you ate all that in one day, but Delassandros is usually good, you went to a diverse range of spots and not just the usual tourist traps like Genos and Pats. Honorable mention to Ishkabibbles

  • I’ve been to Jim’s and they are the best.

  • Outstanding video! I love you because you use the VOCABULARY, a vast collection of descriptive words!! Too many people use phrases like, "super awesome", "super good" , "super... ", and I hate it. Thank you Strictly Dumpling! Cheers!!

  • foot goosebumps!!! LoL

  • McDonald's

  • Oh Lord I want three of these cheese pork sandwiches so badly....oh I forget I lives in Germany :D

  • What kind of cheeses are on the second and third cheesesteak sandwiches?

  • John's roast pork is my fav from philly. Then slightly out the city I love GUMBAS in colmar. And I've had John's roast pork, tony lukes, Jim's on south st, Pat's, genos, delasandros, chubbies and I went to maxs..waited in line 40 min and left without ordering since I moved about 3 spots

  • They're just called cheesesteaks, not cheesesteak sandwiches ;) I'm from Philly and I've never heard anyone call it a cheesesteak sandwich.

  • Omg that jim’s cheesesteak 🤤 and only $9?

  • Ishkabibble’s on South Street for cheesesteaks . But John’s roast pork is the best.

  • Hey mike! Do you sell your hot oil online? Thanks!!

  • Next time your there try Nick's Roast Beef on 20th & Jackson in S. Philly get yourself an "end cut overboard" wit sharp provolone.

  • Born and raised in S. Philly, best place for a cheesesteak is Jim's on S. Street. You've already been there so cross off "Mecca" to your list, there is not a sandwich better.

  • Philly cheesesteak needs just onions, peppers, cheese, steak and nice bread👌

  • Dalessandros is hands down the best spot

  • Thats not Spinach!!! It's Broccoli Rabe!!!

  • Max's is my fav but now I need to try Jim's. Great review!

  • I could smell it through the phone

  • Not 1 european would eat that heartattack you murikans call a sandwich. It's just nasty

    • Well aside from Italians and French you guys don’t have much to contribute to good cuisine anyway

  • I think the large size is made to share maybe
