    I grew up in PA so I know my Philly-style food. If you want an authenic Philly cheesesteak--on Amoroso's bread!--in Austin this is the place to go. Grab a TastyKake or 3 shipped in from the source.

    Skip the Lil Stallion. Get the Paulie and add jalapeños and peppers. The tots inside are more of a gimmick in my opinion. If you're unsure about the whiz, go half whiz and half provolone.

    Try the Philly Cheesesteak - When I want a taste of back east, I head over to Way South Philly for their authentic Philly cheese steak. Delicious

    Finally a cheesesteak shop in Austin with Whiz. Tasty food very authentic. Note they don't take cash. Also their hot peppers were tasteless.

    Best cheesesteak EVER. Owner is a doll. Go for the whiz on the balboa and expect tears when you're done. So great.

    Legit, tasty cheesesteak with portions that will leave you stuffed. Staff is pretty cool too.

    They get their rolls from Amoroso in Philly. As a native Philadelphian, I cannot stress enough how important this is.

    After going to the temples of south Philly, I can testify that this establishment is as good, if not better.

    Do not go here if you expect any sort of value for your money. They charge $12 for their premium sandwich that is the same size as their standard fare. Unimpressed.
