Where to get: Philly Cheesesteak?

I've been jones'in for a good Philly CheeseSteak for a while now. I have tried a couple of places, but have been left disappointed. Any recomendations in the NW Indiana of the South Burbs along the I80 corridor? I want a good sandwich, but not bad enough yet to go as far as the Northside yet.

True story. Get the large and when you've finished you'll be tempted to get another one even though you're stuffed to the gills. I really like these in the middle of winter.

That was by far the best Philly Cheasesteak I've ever tried. Went there every time I was in Philly. I believe they filmed Rocky there ages ago.
There is also another place right across the road from them Gino's, but I've never tried that one yet. Whenever you're in Philly I highly recomend Pat's King of Steaks.

Haven't been on here much lately due to an insane work place but logged on this morning and saw this thread...

.....went to Philly's Best for lunch today and that cheese steak rocked!!! ....probably the best I've ever had (only had a few out in Philly, one place I remember was called "Jim's Steaks" ...Philly's Best on Jackson in Chicago was much better).

Thanks!
