The first thing out-of-towners seek when visiting is where to find the best cheesesteaks. Grudgingly we often we point them in the direction of our favorite neighborhood joints and avoid the tourist traps. Deep down we want to scream to the world that Philly has much more to offer than cheesesteaks. Well the next time your friend or family member visits you can point them in the direction of this list and show them 14 of the best philly sandwiches that aren’t cheesesteaks.
