We love a classic Philly cheesesteak as much as the next person, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go outside the box sometimes. There are many versions of the gut bomb around town, with different restaurants offering their own spins on the sandwich. Here are three of our favorites.
Skinny Dip at Sinful Subs
It’s like a traditional cheesesteak gone off the rails, in a good way. Shaved sirloin and sautéed onions are joined by roasted red peppers, mayo and American cheese, and all that’s topped with melted mozzarella. The kicker is the side of au jus, bringing in the dip component a la LA’s Philippe the Original. 5135 S. Fort Apache Road #145, 702-998-2555.
Pittsburgh Cheesesteak at Steel City Sandwich
This Primanti Brothers-style sammie takes things back to Pittsburgh. Steak, caramelized onions and provolone cheese sit inside two pieces of Italian bread along with a vinegar-forward coleslaw, sliced tomatoes and crunchy French fries, making this a melting pot of tastes and textures. Hard Hat Lounge, 1675 Industrial Road, 702-384-8987.
Italian Steak at Those Guys Pies
This creation at the hidden spot in the Lakes will remind some of a visit to Tony Luke's Cheesesteaks in the City of Brotherly Love. The addition of broccoli rabe gives this sandwich some color and crunch, along with a peppery element that complements the steak and provolone. 2916 Lake East Drive, 702-629-2626.
