The Great Steak and Potato's staff of stomach saters beefs up an extensive menu of toasty sandwiches crafted with freshly baked bread and specialty cut meats. Main-attraction cheesesteaks hog the spotlight with a captivating mélange of onions and toppings supporting a powerhouse of marinated premium sirloin steak. Wrap teeth around the original philly—topped with gooey philly cheese—or pitch a three-cheese chicagoland cheesesteak into your mouth or a friend's catcher's mitt, which can then be used as a plate. Grilled sandwiches include the wisconsin inside out, which plasters a hot, pressed bun with provolone and white american cheese, flooding palates with cheesy goodness. Chicken phillys swap out beef for all-tender, all-white chicken, and sides such as signature french fries ($2–$3.99) or slathered baked potatoes ($3–$5) complete the feast, much like finding a puzzle piece completes the quest for a new business-card shape.
