The battle for who has the best cheesesteak will probably never end, but Tony Luke’s is always in the conversation. This South Philly counter has been around for a while, and they have a bunch of locations now, but the one on Oregon is the original. It’s also the best one, despite having the same menu as all of the other locations. You don’t have to come out of your way to eat here (unless you’re doing a comprehensive cheesesteak tour of Philly), but it’s worth taking a walk to for a late-night sandwich after a Phillies game.
