Leading up to September's Best of Dallas® 2017 issue, we're sharing (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes, the Dallas entrées, appetizers and desserts that really stuck with us this year.

In the era of low-carb and gluten-free, junk food can be an emotionally loaded thing. But sometimes, cheat day or not, you just want a damn sandwich, and a big, beautiful, greasy one at that. On those days, Cheesesteak House is the ultimate treat.

Heartwarming backstory aside, Cheeseteak House in Oak Cliff is a happy place. The counter service is sweet and attentive, the crowd of patrons diverse and happily entranced with the massive sandwiches before them. For first-timers, it's best to go with the classic: a monstrous, meaty cheesesteak sandwich ($5.50 regular, $7.50 large) that comes with your choice of house-made sauces: ranch, honey mustard, barbecue, chipotle mayo or "Joel's Special Sauce," a tangy ketchup-based concoction.

This is a sandwich that cares not for paleo diatribes or dietary restrictions; it's an unapologetically delicious sandwich, nothing more, nothing less.
