We’re sure if the Founding Fathers had a chance to bite into a cheesesteak from this South Philly sandwich spot, they would’ve added a “right to go to Gooey Looie’s every day” clause in one of those parchment scrolls. It’s one of those places where the steak is bursting with so much cooper sharp cheese that you can see the indents of the mounds of beef through the wrapper. It’s also a casual corner store that you can walk into every day and not have to deal with the hassle of a long line when trying to order. The Works here comes dressed up with pickles, onions, and peppers, and it’s the only way you should order it.
