Cheesesteaks have clear ties to Philadelphia, where hot dog vendors Pat and Harry Olivieri were scarfing down links every night before switching things up for dinner one night.

Over the years, Provolone or American cheese has also become popular, as have peppers. Now, the Philly original serves as a touchstone across cultures. From traditional to otherworldly, learn about 10 of the best cheesesteaks in L.A.

Ask us where our favorite poke place in L.A. is and we'll likely answer "Whichever poke place is closest to you." Because at this point, there are versions of Hawaii's take on ceviche in practically every part of the city.
