This place has history, as well as a deeply loyal following among Philly’s highly opinionated cheesesteak lovers. Since 1960 Dalessandro’s Steaks has been serving what it calls its “fresh-cut ribeye steaks” out of its little dozen-seat counter spot in Roxborough. The meat comes piled high in all the sandwiches, from the classic cheesesteak or mushroom steak to the chicken pepper steak – little else gets ordered here, which is just fine for Dalessandro’s devotees. Though there are, of course, hoagies to be had: sixteen versions in fact, encompassing Italian, ham, tuna, salami and meatballs. Wash it all down with your choice from the selection of domestic, imported and seasonal beers while sitting at a patio table outside this simple neighborhood gem, or hope to grab a seat at the stuffed, aging counter.
