Delicious: Great sandwiches at Cheesesteak House

The Cheesesteak House is not Pat’s King of Steaks or Geno’s, those iconic Philadelphia sandwich stands. And that’s OK. Here, we have the Rangers and Mavericks games on the TVs. There’s no pressure to order with as few words as possible. And you can have a seat inside a nice, clean restaurant while you eat your delicious sandwich. The counter-service restaurant is in a modest retail strip with a bodega, a barbershop and an Herbalife place. Owner Joel Padilla orders the restaurant’s bread from Philadelphia bakery Amoroso’s, so there is the authenticity of a bun that’s crispy on the outside and chewy inside. The food is delicious, consistent and inexpensive. Padilla and staff are friendly. He might not remember your name, but he will remember you; he greets every customer with a big smile and “hello!” Along with cheesesteak sandwiches, the restaurant also offers chips and queso, burgers, deli sandwiches and salads.

    Great affordable sandwich! Fantastic people and without all the pretensions and trappings of the B.A.D. (Bishop Arts District) part of town! Be careful though, you might end up sitting next to someone who really works for a living! It’s how old Oak Cliff used to be before the two-bit developers and city council stepped in and started trashing the integrity of our neighborhoods in N. Oak Cliff. This is where the smart locals eat! Sorry no valet parking, and Joel (pronounced Ho-el), the owner and his staff could not be more gracious hosts! Hurry before the city of Dallas turns it into some lame boutique! What a refreshing contrast to the tourist traps down on Bishop!

    We love the cheesesteaks here and the cheeseburgers are great, too. The owner and staff are always so nice. Great place to escape the crowds of Bishop Arts and get some great food!
