Big Al's Steaks - Delray Beach
Delray Beach, FL 33483
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Big Al Costillo and his son Adam migrated from Philly to South Florida expecting to find some place that compared to their favorite local cheese-steak shop, Geno's. But they didn't. So they opened one in a tiny space in a strip mall between State Road 7 and the Sawgrass Expressway, intent on re-creating the famous Philly delicacy using sliced (not chopped!) rib eye, rolls flown in from the City of Brotherly Love, Cheez-Whiz (the ONLY authentic cheese for a cheese steak, although pretentious gourmets can request provolone or American), and loads of sautéed onions. The result is an incomparable sandwich for $7.25. Plus pizza steaks, chicken steaks, hot dogs, hoagies, and fries.
Tips from foursquare
Proclaimed Best Cheese Steak by New Times Broward Palm Beach! They have doughy, soft, and slightly greasy rolls to cradle the fresh rib-eye steaks plus perfectly salted fries to satisfy your cravings.
The Northeast Philly cheesesteak flew South! Awesome. The rolls are actually shipped down here from the City of Brotherly Love!
Not the quickest of places to eat midday but pretty good
Mmm mmm good
Wit and whiz all the way.
