DP Cheesesteaks: great cheesesteak, great bread, great location

If you’re absolutely sure you won’t get on a plane and fly to Philadelphia, then DP Cheesesteaks is the place for you. Its a heck of a lot closer, a heck of a lot cleaner, and, without a doubt, probably just as good.

Found on Broadway in downtown Salt Lake City, DP Cheesesteaks already has something great going for it: location. It shows, too. The lunch time crowd is business dressed, collared shirts and ties all around.

But enough about them. Let’s talk food. Let’s talk cheesesteaks.

My lunch was a “hot, pepper steak,” covered in jalapenos and banana peppers, as well as one red cherry pepper sitting on top. The meat was hot and plentiful, juicy and dripping, with a slice of provolone melting into it. In other words, it was all sorts of win.

The six-inch hoagie was also warm and soft, just a tad chewie on the outside and perfectly cooked on the inside. There was enough bread to hold the sandwich, almost overflowing with meat and peppers, together, in contrast with a lot of sandwich shops which seem to skimp with drying bread.

WIN.

If you’re downtown, walk on over. The food is fast, fantastic, and fresh, and the prices very reasonable.

Service: 6/10 (fast, but serve yourself)
Atmosphere: 6/10 (it’s just above fast food)
Food: 20/25
Parking: 3/5
Eat-ability Quotient (an average of scores):  7/10
