Dalessandro's Steaks and Hoagies

The hunt for the best Philly Cheesesteak is finally over…

More than half a century later, the Dalessandro’s Cheesesteak has kept our customers grinnin’ from ear to ear. In Roxborough, our mom and pop shop, adjacent to Manayunk, is home to the most desirable cheesesteak in Philly and beyond. Just ask anyone.

The Dalessandro’s Cheesesteak is like no other in Philadelphia. That’s why it’s the people’s and critics’ choice year after year. For starters, it’s fresh – we mean really fresh. When you pull up a barstool and order, all you have to do is look and listen.

Produce, bakery, and meat deliveries are going on as you bite into your sandwich. They don’t come once, but throughout the day over and over again. Add the musical symphony of the clanging spatula sound on the grill, and you’re assured the tradition continues.

Meat is finely chopped so that the delicious flavor of the cheese and onions finds its way through every piece of meat. It’s the perfect blend of grilled onions, soft roll, and cheese. That’s how we prepare our authentic steaks, and we guarantee it. Please take a moment to see our whole menu.

Are you ready for the ultimate Philly Cheesesteak experience?

Options and then some

Want to dress up your sandwich while eating in? We got it, and it’s for free. A long chain of various peppers on the counter, from mild to scorching peppers that you can add to your cheesesteak, is always present. When you bite into our steak after you’ve customized it, you’ll know the difference.

You say you’re not a beef lover – no problem. Try the chicken steak. The same idea as beef steaks, but made with white meat – it’s just as fresh and tasty.

One of Dalessandro’s other unique characteristics is that you can order gourmet sodas, domestic and imported beers. Your options might overwhelm you, though. You have more than 20+ choices of bottled beer.

Have we mentioned our hoagies? They’re on the sign outside the shop and on our menu for the same reason as our famous steaks. We have more than 10 hoagies and 7 burgers, depending on your mood, and we recommend them as well. But if you’ve never had our cheesesteak, that should be your first choice.

Because cravings should not be ignored

What our customers have to say about us?

  • My favorite city steak shop. Great tasting food that is prepared just right. Perfect quantity and the staff is very nice.

    – Charles H.

  • Perfectly authentic cheesesteaks! Steak chopped just right and cheese melted in. Excellent selection of choices and loved the hot peppers and pickles on the bar.

    – Nadine B.

  • What makes it the best is that the cheese doesn’t lie flat on top of the bread – instead the cheese is melted into the steak.

    – Saira A.

  • Dalessandro’s was recently voted the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia, and with GREAT reason. Their cheesesteaks are perfect.

    – Mander P.

  • I have been to countless other cheesesteak places around Philadelphia and elsewhere, but none come close to Dalessandro’s.

    – Fletch G.

  • Delicious Philly cheesesteak. Definitely recommend. They also have chicken options for those who want to reduce the red meat.

    – Josenny B.

  • Dalessandro’s Steaks is a premier cheesesteak joint. Minimal seating, lighting fast service, and a cheesesteak exploding with meat and other goodies.

    – Jared J.

  • Dalessandro’s also has something that many cheesesteak places lack… and that is atmosphere.

    – Jeff H.

  • This is the Philly cheesesteak experience. Crowded, busy, lots of noise, not much room inside. All the focus is on the cooking and the eating and that’s okay with me.

    – Bruce K.

  • Dallesandro’s is away from all of the tourist stops in Philly but it is definitely worth the ride.
