You don't have to go all the way to Philly for a great cheesesteak
In the beginning, the Devil's Advocate was all about beer and balls -- meatballs, crab balls, falafel. When it opened in downtown Minneapolis, the Devil's Advocate had a menu stacked with tasty little spheres of meat and other tidbits, and diners could choose from a variety of sauces to enhance their snacks. 

However, the people clamored for more! The chef responded, and a star was born -- drenched in golden, gooey cheese. Behold, the Devil's Advocate cheesesteak.

This take on a Philly cheesesteak differs from the several other versions around town. This isn't a sandwich trying to be fancy. There is no chefy twist. A fat loaf of soft white bread is split, toasted, and piled with thinly sliced layers of tender steak, mixed with a glorious amount of onions. The entire deal is then doused in liquid gold, an upscale cheese whiz, if you will. 

Succulent meat, sweet onion, and salty, hot cheese: It's impossible not to make a mess while devouring this beast, so maybe skip this on date nights. Release your vanity and abandon sophistication at the edge of that crusty bread -- this is a dish to be enjoyed with reckless, cheese-fueled abandon.

Yuk - nothing like Philly.   Soft white bread, upscale cheese whiz - you gotta be joking.  Looks like dog food.
