The winner is actually a place I have been to before on a previous trip. It was recommended by a colleague who is a big fan of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and used it to plan his trip meals. You’d never think to get a Philly Cheesesteak in Salt Lake City, unless you were FROM Salt Lake City, and knew about Moochie’s Meatballs and More!
The first time I went, we had one guy along who said he didn’t like Philly cheesesteaks. I told him he’d probably never had a real one, and he agreed and was willing to try one. After we were done with lunch, everybody agreed that authentic Philly cheesesteaks are in fact unbelievably awesome.
Moochie’s was started by a Philadelphia native, and the cheesesteaks are 100% accurate, which is extremely rare to find outside of the Philadelphia area. Even if it were in the Philadelphia area, it would still be one of the better cheesesteak places!
