I was provided press passes to the Philly Cheesesteak Festival for my review.
In late October, my sister, niece, nephews and I took a day trip to Philadelphia for the first Philly Cheesesteak Festival. Since I was there as press and my niece and youngest nephew wanted to have some fun, I decided to let them choose their favorites as we ate samples. This was also their first time having cheesesteaks. Check out our top three trucks below.
Steve’s Prince of Steaks
Steve’s Prince of Steaks offered samples of their chicken and beef steak sandwiches with American cheese. Even after standing in line to sample other cheesesteaks from other trucks, my oldest niece kept asking to go back.

My youngest nephew eats pretty much anything, but Vince’s Cheesesteaks was his favorite truck. Much to my surprise, this truck doesn’t cater to Philadelphia but is located in Allentown, PA. The Vince Classic Cheesesteak offered included red sauce, onions, pickles, and hot peppers with white American cheese in a beef or chicken option.

Grubaholics truck was my absolute favorite. While my sister or I waited on line, my nieces and nephews waited on other lines to get samples so we wouldn’t lose our place. Through this truck, we realized we could’ve used multiple tickets to get a full-sized cheesesteak instead of samples at the other trucks too. Since it was our last truck, we opted to get the hero before heading home. The Grubaholics Jerk chicken cheesesteak wasn’t as spicy as expected, but it was still good.
