"I make my cheesesteaks as if I were making them for my own mother," he said.

I remember that article about the 800 lb deceased who wouldn't fit into the cremation device.

He also said he uses a "really good, steer ribeye steak" from Minnesota that is "marbled" better than most ribeye beef. Marbling refers to the fat content in ribeye which, when grilled, makes it juicy and tender, Campo says. "You can taste the difference. It's almost like eating filet [mignon]."

So, he uses the same frozen pre-sliced ribeye that all the other cheesesteak restaurants use.


Campo's claims in its civil complaint that its sandwich is "so superlative" and "gloriously gluttonous" that only it could be called "Philadelphia's Cheesesteak."

This is an ad, not a trademark proposal.

I've eaten there. They're ok.

But being a shiathead is part of selling cheesesteaks. Look at Genos.

you have pee hands: But being a shiathead is part of selling cheesesteaks. Look at Genos.


Being a shiathead is also part of being a resident of Philadelphia. I'll bet if you refused to eat food served by a self-aggrandizing asshole during your stay in the city you'd probably starve to death if you stayed more than a week or two.

FTFA: Campo's said it's been using "Philadelphia's Cheesesteak" at its four locations and on its website since at least Jan. 1, 2009.

Oh, good to know that no one ever made a cheesesteak in Philly before 2009.

Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, I used to get really good cheesesteaks at a place called Jim's, at 4th and South.

/Never had Pat's or Geno's. 
//And this guy's trademark claim is ridiculous.

The two groups of people that get the most worked-up about their "food" is New Yorkers with pizza and Philly with their cheese steaks.

Get over yourselves, fatasses

Tony Luke's is better. John's is probably the best. You can ask for bacon on your cheesesteak at John's. Yes, it is as good as it sounds. That, and they dispense with the cheesesteak parlance "wit/wit out" bullshiat.

\Shame they close at 3pm.

Negative.

The big cheesesteak places though are mostly tourist traps run by dickheads. And Campos isn't even that good.

Sounds to me like he wants that trademark to use to troll his competition with and legal break them. i am willing to bet he has an inferior product to the classic purveyors of the Philly cheese steak.

Whatever you do, don't get the frozen "Tony Luke's" stuff. It has 0% resemblance to a real Cheesesteak.

A group of us from work made an effort to eat at the top 10 places in Glen Macnow's cheesesteak challenge from a few years ago. John's roast pork was number 1 on the list.

And each of us hated it. Onions were undercooked, meat was tasteless and was overpowered by the roll (which was awesome and the best part of the cheesesteak.) We do, however, want to go back for the roast pork.

Ask 10 Philadelphians their favorite cheesesteak and you'll get 10 different answers.

For me? The place that rhymes with Wink's on Torresdale Ave. Plus they have great milk shakes.

My 10 year old niece has also been bitten by the cheesesteak bug and is demanding we go to Tony Luke's and Gooey Looie's.

As far as I know Jim's is still there, and now there is a second shop on Baltimore Pike in Springfield. I'm of the opinion that Jim's is the best out of the big names in the city. One of the best I've ever had was from a small shop in Landsdowne. Unfortunately the placed closed down years ago.
