    I have eaten many "authentic Philadelphia cheesesteaks" outside of Philly.

    I have yet to have one with that disgusting.... but oh-so authentic... cheese whiz.

    Has anyone had a cheese-whiz steak outside of Pennsylvania?

    Daytona International Speedway serves some really nasty-ass cheese goop when they serve their nasty-ass cheesesteaks to the media. It might be Cheez Whiz.

    That's when I go buy a hot pretzel from the vendor outside the media center.

    You can Steak Um in the North
    You can Steak Um in the South
    But the best way is to never put Steak Um in your mouth.

    Those things are fucking disgusting.

    ... and dip it in the nasty-ass cheese goop already provided. Smart!

    Gross. Only mustard for hot pretzels.

    I do eat the bun for the cheesesteak though. I'm a bread fiend.

    Here in beautiful bumblef*ck California, I have discovered two places that reallya ttempt to get the cheesesteak correct, but they fail.
    Most places don't even really try to get it right.
    We have one place that makes a very good sandwich that they call a cheesesteak, but it is nothing like the real thing.
    I talked to the guy who owns the place years ago when I first moved here, and I asked him:
    'Have you ever even been to Philly?'
    He admitted he had not.

    It's not Cheez Whiz. Americrown (ISC's concessions division) won't spend that kind of name-brand money unless Kraft bought a sponsorship. Usually it's just cheddar cheese from a #10 can that's been dumped into a pan in a steam table and heated up. (They usually use the same stuff at nacho stands.) Most of the people who work at grunt level for Americrown will tell you to avoid the Philly steak sandwiches because of how the meat is handled. :-X In that case, the pretzel is the better choice. Or go to the Bud Bistro next to the infield media center in the Fan Zone --- Americrown's catering division is in charge there.

    The Bud Bistro charges like $14 for a sammich. And it's dry. No thanks.

    Holly Cain and I live on those pretzels during Speedweeks.

    Doesn't Steak N Shake use cheese whiz?
