Lee's Hoagie House:
2269 E. Colorad Blvd
The joint was totally packed so I took my hoagie to go. The interior is simple and the customers looked like regulars from all walks of life - office workers, cops, and older folks hanging out.
I've never been to Philly so I can't comment on the authenticity. I'll let others debate that. All I know is that I enjoyed this sandwich.
Here is a view of one half. You can see how the sandwich was constructed. One thing though - this is a wet sandwich so it'll get soggy really fast so don't let it sit for too long. Probably best to have it there - if you can get a seat.
The "wetness" came from the onion/pepper sauce that they put on at your request. Here's a close up. The peppers had a kick! I can see some people not getting into the vinegar and hot stuff though. To each their own...
I'll be sure to go back and try out a Cheesesteak soon.
