Gino’s Original Cheese Steak


DSC_0539_editedWe recently had the pleasure of sampling some of the best sandwiches this side of New York at Gino’s Original Cheese Steak in Syracuse. If you have ever been to Philly and love their shaved steak sandwiches, but wished you could have one right at home…then Gino’s is a must try for you! As Billy Fuccillo would say they are H-U-G-E and you might even have to eat them with a fork. That is how big they are. Don’t worry they offer half sandwiches.

We sat down in the diner style restaurant and ordered off the menu board while you hear them preparing all the delights. It makes you even hungrier while listening to them chop away on the grill. The menu has many options and it might take you a minute to decide. It didn’t take us long. Why you ask? How can you go to a Cheese Steak place and not order the Cheese Steak. And, a bonus with all their sandwiches is that is comes on Amoroso Rolls straight from Philadelphia. They are the real deal.

While you are waiting take a look around there is pictures everywhere of people that have eaten there, places of Syracuse and a chalkboard where you can leave a message. There is even a wooden horse saddle in the corner that you can sit on.

Here is what we had to sample:

Belly Filler – Chopped steak (you can chose chicken if you like), Cheese – your choice – I had to order the melted cheese wiz that soaked through the entire sandwich, Mushrooms, Onions and Peppers. The steak was seasoned perfectly and chopped very finely. You can taste every ingredient. For my side I had to try the Waffle Fries topped with melted cheese wiz and bacon. It was a match made in heaven. I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

Chicken Wing – Chopped Chicken Breast, Wing Sauce and Crumbly Blue Cheese. The chicken was smothered in wing sauce that left a punch of heat in your mouth. We added cheese to the sandwich which gave it a great balance with the wing sauce. The side was crispy fries that were fried just right and helped balance the heat in the sandwich.

One of the bonuses is that everything is made to order and you can watch them make your yummy treats. Don’t be surprised if you hear them yelling out orders and greeting customers as they come in.
