This is a very busy place. Make sure you call ahead,have cash, and are not in a rush.

The mushroom chicken cheesesteak and the pepper cheesesteak are my two favorites! They are so worth the wait and crowd. Yummm

I grew up on Dalessandro's as a kid. The service is fantastic and sandwiches are excellent. Its a great steak because all the ingredients are top notch.

My Standard

I first went here as a young boy, 20 some years ago. It was my first cheesesteak and defined the standard for all that followed. Nothing on South Street compares.

I'd pick up one on the way to the skating rink and after enough ice, I'd pick up one on the way home. Kept me dancing.

Now, I'm in Costa Mesa, California and there is nothing that even resembles a cheesesteak like Dalessandros! It's like what airlines would come up with for a cheesesteak.

Great steaks

You walk in and you can hear the steak sizzling. The smell just gets your stomache rumbling.

Belly up to the counter and get your order in quickly. Wait time is normal unless its packed. I usually go after the lunch crowd so I can take my time.

Rolls are fresh and high quality, steak is salted perfectly. Not too much cheese.

Its a great steak because all the ingredients are top notch, the flavors are right and it doesnt sit in your stomache like a rock when you're done with it.

BEST CHEESESTEAKS EVER

dalessandros puts cr@ck in their cheesesteaks which is why they keep me coming back for more. i moved away from philly but i still dream of ordering 2 cheesesteaks with sauce and onions with lots of red cherry peppers on the side.

Now this is a cheesesteak!

Yes, the place looks like a hole in the wall. The seating is horrible, the parking is not much better. But who cares! When it comes to the cheesesteak itself, there is no place in Philadelphia (and therefore, the world) that has a better one. Words can not describe the taste - you just have to eat one to know that you are in cheesesteak heaven! Add the onions, forget the sauce, and just sit back and enjoy! You will probably want to order a 2nd one!

Best in Philly

Forget Pat's and Geno's.They're not even close. I grew up eating ""Deli's"" and have missed them since I moved to the burbs. I stopped there on the way home from the Phillies parade with 4 friends, 1 veteran Deli's eater and 3 rookies. It was everything I remembered. Chopped light, perfect roll. All 3 rookies ate more than usual. I have to get back more often

Best cheesesteak ever

I eat at Dalessandro's four times last week.
The place is still old but the food is more than great. The cheesesteaks are delicious, the meat is fatless and the service is friendly and fast. The parking is easy all day long on the street.
I will go there again the next time I visit Philly

Consistently delivers a FANTASTIC cheesesteak!

I work nearby and lunch out quite a bit. When the sun is high, I hunger for MEAT!!!!! YUMMY MEAT!!...really Yummy MOUTHWATERING soft bread.

I've tried all the delis and steakhouse in a 5 mile radius in search for my quest. Without a doubt, D'Alessandros quenches my red meat cravings... time and time again.

Dalessandro's Downhill

Dale's use to be the best cheesesteaks in Philly (when it was family owned). Ever since St. Pats day Dale's was sold out of the family. It is now run by Greeks who are apparently cheep. The meat is fatty and the sauce is sub-par. If you go after 10PM many nights the roles are hard and sometimes even cold. Many of the original faces are now gone and have been replaced by mexicans (nothing against mexicans but its just not dalessandro's). RIP Dalessandro's, I am now starting a new life at Chubby's.

Great Cheese Steak!!

I've tried them all since moving to Philly 5 years ago and without a doubt, hands down Dalessandro's is the best!

The king of cheesesteaks

When you go to Philly, you get a cheesesteak. And when you want the best cheesesteak, you go to Dalessandro's. I've got the address programmed into my GPS and whenever I'm close (within 75 miles or so) I make the detour. They are that good. I also have to bring about 10 back to the folks up here in CT because there ain't no better. A day or two later when you heat em up right, they are just as good as the day they were made. Mmmmmm mmmmmm good! I've tried em all and there's no beating the original... Dalessandro's.

Overrated - Go Across the Street to Chubby's

Overrated steak shop, Go to Chubby's. I've been eating cheesesteaks throughout the Philly area for decades now, oh and yes I'm born and raised. The best steaks aren't Pat's, Geno's, Jim's, or Dalessandro's, it's Chubby's across the street. The service is fantastic and sandwich is excellent. Good roll, quality chopped meat, great hot peppers, a nice sandwich overall that has both the quality and quantity. Go to this hidden away gem across the street from Dalessandro's.

My Favorite Cheesesteak

If I had to choose a best cheesesteak, I'd go with Dalessandro's. Gooey Looey's would be a close second. Getting a cheesesteak with ketchup and a Wishniak is the way to go. It's highly addictive.

Cheesesteak

I don't care how good there cheesesteaks are I refuse to wait 45minutes in a stuffy shoebox for any cheese steak. Workers are as slow as you get.

Better than Most

but not as great as Larry's on 54th Street. The place is incredibly filthy, but I didn't come here for the atmosphere. I ordered a cheesesteak w/ fried onions and ketchup. It looked delicious but it came to us almost cold. I couldn't taste the cheese and the meat was too finely minced to a point that it's was too mushy. I loved the humongous portions, the soft bread and the service. This place is MUCH better than those cheesesteak tourist attractions in South Philly but I prefer Larry's. I would rank Dalessandro's as #2 cheesesteak joint.

Not as good as cChink's

I've toured all of the Philly Cheesesteak establishments, trying to discover the best overall cheesesteak out there. And I thought that Dalessandro's steak's is pretty average. The quantity is definately big, which is a plus. The roll is pretty good, but the quality of the meat was slightly below average. All in all, I would classify it as an average cheesesteak compared to Pats or Genos. And inferior to cChink's steaks, which is by far the best that I have tasted.
