Read review on Judy’s Book.

In my book, there is only one reason you go to Metro Caffe, and if you follow my directions, you’ll have a five-star experience. Stray from the path at your own peril.

First off, you only go to Metro Caffe for a cheesesteak, and no, there is no such thing as a chicken cheesesteak or turkey cheesesteak or soy-protein cheesesteak. Steak comes from cows, in this case Niman ranch hormone-free cows, which I unapologetically love to consume, especially here.

What else goes on a cheesesteak? Let’s revisit the name… we already have the steak so let’s go back to the cow and get the cheese, American cheese in this case. Add in onions, mushrooms, hot and sweet peppers and you have a perfect cheesesteak. Well, not yet… you do need double meat and double cheese otherwise the sandwich is just an anemic San Francisco interpretation of a cheesesteak. Bulk it up and you have a damn fine artery-clogging heart-stopping cheesesteak.

What do you want on the side? The fries are good (especially with chili and cheese), but the onion rings take top spot next to such a perfect sandwich. Add in a root beer or grape soda and you’re on your way…. probably to the doctor for an angioplasty, but isn’t it worth it?
