The Big Kahuna Cheesesteak at Jersey Mike's Subs

When I read Kaitlin Steinberg's recent experience trying a philly cheesesteak for the first time, my first thought was, "Hot damn! It's been years since I've had a good cheesesteak."

Well, in all honesty, my first admittedly snarky thought actually related to her dining companion's ridiculous proscription, 'you can't get a Philly with white cheese' (um, have you been to Philadelphia and observed the many accepted renditions of its namesake meat sandwich?). But commenters have lambasted this poor fellow enough already.
