I stop by Spataro’s because I was already in the Reading Terminal market. The market is a happening place, but it’s only open from about 8 AM – 6 PM. Spataro‘s gets quite a bit of traffic. I had a cheesesteak sandwich with jalapeños. I...More

On weekends this place can be very crowded. The best strategy is to have one person in your party find seating while the other orders the sandwiches. We went for the tried and true cheese steak with “wiz” and onions. We were not disappointed. A...More

This is a busy place with a long line so it looked like the place to go- but both of our cheesesteaks were a letdown. The meat was ok, but the whole thing was boring and it lacked flavor. At first I wondered if there...More

Impressive to see how they are put together. People are crazy about them. This was our first authentic cheesesteak sandwich. Very good but not something I would eat all the time.

When we sat down to eat our cheesesteaks, a fellow diner said, ‘You shoulda’ gone somewhere else for one of those’, and he named three restaurants in other parts of the city. Sadly, we only had the Reading Terminal Market to choose from (we were...More

Went here for a cheesesteak at lunch. Line went pretty quickly. Had a "wiz with" it was OK. Not great. Not much cheese or onion on it.

I have had many cheesesteaks in my life, but never in Philly. Never this simple and good. The roll is soft, the beef is tender and the cheese is there but certainly not the focus. We were not really that hungry, we were running late...More

I never understood the hype for Philly cheesesteaks, beyond, perhaps, a need for any city to have a culturally unique cuisine. Beef, peppers, onions, oil, salt, pepper. Okay? Kinda boring, in my opinion. I dug the environment of the Reading Terminal Market, but I get...More
