For me it's Campo's hands down. Right in old city, it's where I take my out of town friends when they visit. It's rarely mentioned in the best cheese steak conversation, but it's always crowded.

Come on man.  It's my own fault, but I just clicked in this thread right from the blog where they were talking about banana pudding, peach cobbler, and southern food.  Then I come over here and see this pic.  I think it's time for 2nd lunch.

The secret to good Italian food is simple fresh ingredients. It's the same with a cheesesteak IMO. What I like about Campo's is the simplicity. Perfect roll, sliced rib eye, provolone cheese, and onions perfectly fried that melt in your mouth like flavor crystals :D

i have only had them at CBP. def like them, but not the best for me. 

also, provolone goes on roast pork sammies, not cheesesteaks. JK, to each his own and that is making me hungry.

American is also good. A guilty pleasure of mine is a cheese steak from Chickie's and Pete's where they use the crab fry cheese sauce on it.

The only time I do whiz is during the "I need food at 2am" phase.

Other than that my go to cheese is provolone, sharp provolone if you have it.

Provolone if you're adding tomato sauce is nice.

Provolone cheese melts just right without getting too greasy or goopy. I like how mild provolone (nutty, sweet) complements the taste of the cheesesteak (savory, salty). American cheese is ok, it's blander, but I never like whiz. I prefer sharper provolone on a roast pork. Because the meat is milder, sharp provolone cuts right through it.

i'm all american cheese BUT can appreciate the opinion view since you put it that way.
