If you’re a Giants or Jets fan, you obviously hate the Eagles (and hate the Patriots even more). But you’ve gotta admit: Philadelphia’s signature sub is still a game day fave. And if you live close to Philly, you’re all about an Eagles win. Either way, you’re going to want to grab some authentic cheesesteaks for your whole crew from one of these spots. If you can't make it to the Philly famous Pat's King of Steaks this Sunday, try one of these NJ spots instead.
