When it comes to comfort food that I grew up with in eastern PA, I'm a purist. I don't eat pineapple on pizza, I don't use a spoon to twirl my pasta, and my Philly cheesesteak sandwiches had better come with just meat, caramelized onions, melted cheese and bread. No arguments.

But today I committed sacrilege; I had a cheesesteak sandwich with... ugh, I hate to even say it... green stuff on it--shredded lettuce, peppers and... wait for it... avocado. (Hey, it's California... enough said?)

Well, I swear by all things that are sacred and holy I never thought these words would escape my lips: DAMN it was GOOD!!

Now while it's not a true Philly cheesesteak, when coupled with some Tastykakes for desert, it's well worth checking out.

Meat was good. Rolls lacked the crustyness of a real philly steak. They also did not have wiz. But they had tasty cakes and Pennsylvania Dutch Birch Beer. For where we are is was welcomed. If they were in philly their doors would be closed real fast.

Great food, dine in or take out.
Not only do they have steak they serve Chicken and Turkey phillys. All have great flavor.
Only place to get an philly sandwich in San Diego.
