South Philly Experience

When people think of great cheesesteaks, they usually don't think LA. But this casual takeout spot on West Pico should change all that. Started as a food truck, this shop is now a full-blown cheesesteak hub run by a family who grew up in New Jersey across the bridge from South Philadelphia. The sandwiches come filled with razor-thin slices of beef that melt into a savory blend of grilled onions and Cheez Wiz. Each roll is a soft and chewy vessel, baked fresh and flown in from a local bakery in Philly. We’re considering writing the owners a love letter (or at least a Megan Thee Stallion-esque verse) to express our gratitude.
