Steve’s Prince of Steaks & Philadelphia Cheesesteaks

Steve’s Prince of Steaks sits a couple of blocks from the gorgeous Philadelphia City Hall.  It was included on some lists as one of the best Philly Cheese Steaks in Philadelphia.

There was music blasting from the Steve’s Prince of Steaks kitchen.  The bare bones restaurant’s decor is a flashback of the 1950s with its decor.  The metallic high tables and black seats reminds me of old American drive-ins with a neon sign brandishing the restaurant’s name.  The service wasn’t ordinary, but resembling an In N Out or Shake Shack.  It good enough for its class of restaurant.

In addition, Steve’s Prince of Steaks serves a variety of burgers and fries including the Philly Cheese Steak.  The Philly Cheese Steak is an icon and notoriously associated with Philadelphia.  How does Steve’s distinguish itself from the rest of the crowd?

Steve’s Prince of Steaks comes loaded with grilled onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and melted cheese of your choice.  The 12 inch hoagie roll is layered with thinly cut steaks with the fore-mentioned toppings.  It’s massive compared to other famous sandwiches around the world like the Cuban.

The melted cheese provides a stretchy texture and the grilled vegetables provides a bite to beef.  However, the steak was a bit dry and bland in flavor.  It wasn’t the greatest cheese steak nor was it the worst.  As appealing as it appears, Steve’s Prince of Steaks was a bit disappointing for my first cheese steak on my Philadelphia cheese steak tour.  It definitely didn’t live up to the hype like New York pizza or Chicago hot dogs.
