Jake’s Steaks was started by a Philly native who has a goal to provide the best tasting cheesesteaks in or out of Philadelphia . It is a good sign when half the people at Jake’s Steaks joint are from Philly. For the unenlightened, a cheesesteak consists of a heap of shredded beef and onion, tossed on a griddle, piled onto a uniquely chewy but tender Amoroso roll imported from Philadelphia and topped with Cheese Whiz, which melts into the sandwich. “My goals are to make the best tasting cheesesteaks in or out of Philadelphia — and give people a great place to eat them.” Jake Gillis, Founder
Jake’s is tucked away on a residential block, but that doesn’t stop local from popping in for a beer at the eight-seat bar or grabbing a table in the small but bright space, complete with a wallpapered photo of Philly’s boathouse row on the Schuylkill River.
