Steak Sub Poll, Classic Philly style or Original?

So, just for fun wanted to take a poll on steak subs, do you like the classic Philly style "as its done in Philly" with the rib eye, onions and cheese wiz, or, do you like when its done more original, like lets say real cheese slices- American, provolone, Swiss, etc, and or diff toppings? No right or wrong answer :)

I like a steak bomb. That's shaved steak cooked on the flat top with onions. Genoa salami and provolone cheese are arranged in top of the cooking steak and the entire thing is inverted onto a sub roll.

I am not a cheese wiz type of eater, something with as much potential as cheese should no be "whizzed", lol..

I like my steak sandwich with no cheese, Ill take au jus over my shaved steak or maybe pepper crust the steak and some nice creamy horseradish sauce...

If I have to use cheese, I am thinking a creamy swiss spread cheese...

I hate cheese wiz! I don't think its even cheese is it?

We don't have real steak subs here, and when i lived down in Miami, we did not have traditional Philly type steak subs.
But I make my own and use real cheese slices, with sauteed onions and sometimes peppers.
There is a restaurant here in town that makes a Philly with grilled onions, melted cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo. Its very good but far from traditional.

Not a cheez whiz fan here either, but if I were in Philly, I would try it. It's gotta be so popular there for a reason.

I like steak sandwiches with thin sliced rare to med rare rib eye and onions, on a toasted French roll. Maybe just a little mayo and s and p. Mushrooms if I have them.

Steak and sauteed onion French dip. Best if it's leftover rib roast.

Here I thought we were picking between Geno's or Pat's. We tried them both, and Pat's gets our vote. Not only was their sandwich better, the employees were more helpful and friendlier. Guess you have to be a local to be treated nicely at Geno's. ~~ Souschef, be sure to save some time to wander through the 9th Street Italian Market. So Much Fun!

When making ours at home, I quick sear chopped steak on the CI griddle, pile into a lightly toasted sub bun, add sauteed onions and mushrooms, and smother it with some sort of white cheese. The cheese is usually provolone, but we've also had mozzarella, a mild swiss, or sometimes a sharp American. It has to be a melty cheese.
