The American Cheesesteak Co.

The American Cheesesteak Co. is a relatively new restaurant located on Davie Street that specializes in cheesesteak sandwiches. I’m no expert on cheesesteaks and I’ve only ever had one in my life but I was looking forward to trying one from a place that specializes in them. The inside of the store has that old east coast American feeling with lots of brick and wood accents.

Coke in Glass Bottle

The pop they sell here comes in old school glass bottles which is an expensive but cool touch. Since they were pricy Burger Knight and I shared a Coke.


On their menu they have some classic style cheesesteaks and some more unique flavours. I opted for one of the special ones and got the regular sized Cowboy ($10) which comes with shaved prime rib, crispy fried onions, homemade spicy bbq sauce, bacon mayo and aged white cheddar. This sandwich was amazing. The shaved prime rib is piled on and is super tender and juicy. The sandwich is smothered in gooey cheese and I liked the bit of crunch that the crispy onions added. I only thought the BBQ sauce was okay and the flavour was a little too overwhelming for my taste. The bun was soft but it didn’t get soggy and every bite seemed to simply melt in my mouth. Even though this was only the regular size it the bun was packed full of toppings and it was very filling.

Philly Cheesesteak

Burger Knight ordered the large philly ($10) with American cheese. This sandwich was massive and truly a meat lovers dream topped only with shaved prime rib and cheese. I was surprised at how good the American cheese was because when I hear American cheese I just think of McDonald’s but this cheese was way better. It was a bit stronger than I expected (in a good way) and it didn’t have the super yellow colour that some of them have. Burger Knight has a pretty big appetite and he was stuffed by the time he was done. The regular size is probably good enough to fill you up for lunch.

Large Side of Fries

Fries don’t come with the sandwiches so Burger Knight and I shared a large side of fries. The large side was quite big and the perfect amount for two people. The fries were double fried (my favourite type) and they were crispy and hot. We both really enjoyed the fries and were glad that we ordered them. Although you could easily be filled up from a sandwich the fries are so yummy that I recommend sharing some.

Overall the American Cheesesteak Co exceeded our expectations. The sandwiches were simple but delicious and hearty and everything came out fresh and hot. I would come back here in a second to try some more sandwiches.


Yes, for any meat lover who appreciates a good sandwich.
