Jake's Steaks (Philly Cheese Steaks) was started by a Philly native who has a goal to provide the best tasting cheesesteaks in or out of Philadelphia. It is a good sign when half the people at Jake's Steaks joint are from Philly. For the unenlightened, a cheesesteak consists of a heap of shredded beef and onion, tossed on a griddle, piled onto a uniquely chewy but tender amoroso roll imported from Philadelphia and topped with Cheese Whiz, which melts into the sandwich.
Jake's is tucked away on a residential block, but that doesn't stop local from popping in for a beer at the eight-seat bar or grabbing a table in the small but bright space, complete with a wallpapered photo of Philly's boathouse row on the Schuylkill River.
Jake's sport bar offer big screen HD plasma, access to all NFL Sunday Ticket and college football games, all other premium sport packages, and 6 taps of beer. Because of its neighborhood sports bar atmosphere, Jake's is a favorite hangout place for the Marina/CowHollow residents during football, baseball, and basketball season. Because of Jake's Philly affiliation, Eagles, Phillies, 76ers, and Flyers fans in sf and the bay area often hang out at Jake's during game day.
