Cheesesteaks Gone Wild!

Posted: 10/17/11 03:50 PM ET

Being a native Philadelphian, I wouldn't dare say that we got bored with cheesesteaks (not possible), but we're always looking for ways to make good things better -- and easier to eat in a social setting with a fork. These seven insane creations mean you can spend a weekend in Philadelphia and eat a different kind of cheesesteak spinoff at every meal.

Alternately known as South Street Sushi, the Philly Taco is a local legend.

So what is it? Head to South Street in Philly a buy a gigantic slice of Lorenzo's pizza. Then head to neighboring Ishkabibble's and order cheese fries, cheese on the side.

This taco is best pulled-off when with a group. Enter Jim's cheesesteak: Send one person to order a cheesesteak, send the rest of the group upstairs with the remaining ingredients.

To assemble: Cover your cheesesteak with fries, and the accompanying cheese, then wrap the whole thing, taco-style, in the slice of pizza. Consume. I guess it can be any cheesesteak, pizza and fries combination, but these three places are all a block away from each other, and Lorenzo's slices are just the right size for the sandwich.
