Finally, a proper cheese steak with Cheez Whiz in Seattle! Its been about 6 years since I had the real deal in Philidelphia so I don’t really remember how the cheese steaks tasted out there. However, I do remember all the good locations didn’t use all that fancy-pants cheese and toppings. It’s all about the Cheese Whiz, meat, and onions (in some instances).
Having driven by this place many times I decided to do a little research on Yelp and Urbanspoon. The results…overall good but there really wasn’t much out there on these guys. Normally when there is a place serving up good food all the foodies flock to the location and jack up the number of review. So coming here I didn’t really expect too much based on my research.
Boy was I wrong. These guys are probably one of the most under rated food trucks in the area. I don’t really know why it’s not more popular…It could be because they don’t really participate in the mobile food meet-ups, or maybe it’s because they don’t really move from the SODO location, or maybe these guys are just are not as good at marketing themselves. Who knows?
Serving up really only 3 products: the Steak, the Cheese Steak, and the Pizza Steak. All three come with the delicious steak chopped up so fine that it’s almost like ground beef consistency (when cooked up) then stuffed in a long hoagie roll. The hoagie held together pretty well considering the amount of cheese and meat juices thrown in them. The meat could have use a little more seasoning (but that just my personal preference). No matter which menu item you get make sure you head to the sidebar and load up on the pickled peppers. I don’t know if the peppers are homemade or canned but they added an awesome little kick to the sandwiches.
During my trip to Philly Boys Cheesesteaks got the Cheese Steak with Cheez Whiz for a total of $8.50 after tax.
Note – Cash only and there is only one table. So get your food to go.
