The Original Steak & Hoagies
10735 Ravenna Road
Twinsburg, OH 44087
A friend told me that his friend from Philadelphia had gone to a place in Twinsburg that had the closest thing to a true Philly Cheese Steak that he'd had around here. A day later, I was eating at The Original Cheese Steak & Hoagies on Ravenna Road in Twinsburg. Although I'd checked the menu on their website before I visited, I still wasn't sure what I wanted to order. You'd think that years of watching Cheese Steak episodes on the Food Network and The Travel Channel would have prepared me. I wanted a cheese steak, and I knew that I wanted Cheez Whiz on it (you can also get American and Provolone)- that's how I'd heard they do it in Philly. I should have ordered onions on it, but the only other thing I got was hot peppers. I also ordered a small cheese fry.
The cheese steak that you see in the picture is the small one- 7", and it's still pretty big. The roll was nice and soft and was filled to the top with chopped steak. The Cheez Whiz seemed to be saturated into much of the steak making every bite a Cheezy bite of heaven. The hot peppers were mixed throughout and gave just a little heat without being too much. Again, I don't know why I didn't order onions- I'm still kicking myself. The fries were nice and crispy, and looked like they were the type that are battered. As you can see in the pic, the Cheez Whiz is served on the side, and didn't make the fries all soggy.
One other thing about this place- everyone was really friendly. It looked to me like it's a family business, and I must have had 5 different people ask me how my food was. One of the guys, Bill, chatted with me for a minute and told me a little bit about the place and the food. He told me that their hoagies are really popular, and I believe that he told me that they slice the meat fresh for each one. That just means that I have to make a trip back really soon to try one. I also noticed too late that they have Bay Fries, which are french fries served with Old Bay Seasoning- I'm going to try some of those too. All in all, a great place for a great sandwich that I'd highly recommend.
