You’ll also find a philly suited up with everything from fried peppers to provolone cheese to garnishes like oregano.” Philly Jay’s Steak caters, too.

Chef Jason sources his sandwich rolls from the family-owned Amoroso’s Baking Co. on Philadelphia. They are the Gold Standard of sandwich rolls for authentic cheesesteaks and Hoagies.
