Philly Cheesesteak Toronto

The Best Philly Cheesesteak in Toronto

The best Philly cheesesteak in Toronto starts with a soft yet crusty roll that supports a mountain of steak or chicken usually accompanied by sauteed onions and peppers plus your choice of at least one type if not more of ooey, gooey cheese.
