Philadelphia's made its mark on the sandwich world with the cheese steak, a thinly sliced beef sandwich topped with onions (order it wit) and sometimes peppers. Choose from popular topping Cheez Wiz (that would be a wit Wiz for onion and Cheez Wiz) or go for something more sophisticated such as provolone. The real deal is only served on Amoroso's rolls. Find the best in Vegas at POP’s, an acronym for Pride of Philly Steaks, where they serve sirloin steak cut razor thin and Amoroso’s rolls. Best of all, it’s open 24 hours.

Croque Monsieur is just a fancy name for a grilled ham and cheese sandwich, but that French name makes it sound oh so much more romantic. Of course, a bechamel sauce is the real secret to this sandwich. Francois Payard uses his grandfather's recipe, layering jambon de Paris, Swiss Gruyere and a rich bechamel sauce between slices of toasted white bread and topped with more bechamel and grated Gruyere.
