It's the Cheesesteak stupid!!! Haven't been to Philly but don't know how a Cheesesteak Sandwich could be any better than here. We travel 200 miles to get one...

These are the best on the West Coast I have ever eaten at Theo's Cheesesteak'. I have eaten these for 8 months straight and still eaten them. If you want the best then go to Theo's thats right Theo's the place to go. They were nominated for the Best of the Bay for a reason. Trust me.

The cheesesteak was good but I'm still looking for a better one. The standard for me has been set by the long closed Philadeli in old Novato which still has the best cheesesteak I've had.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
