Best Philly Cheese Steak Ever

Known for its Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, Salem’s one of a kind adaptation of the famous sandwich was declared several years ago by The Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson as the  “the best Philly cheese steak sandwich I’ve ever tasted — and I’m including Philadelphia.”

A class act, Salem’s Diner serves the most scrumptious and in the case of the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich “addictive” food in Birmingham. The honor of “best diner” in Alabama by Mental Floss is well deserved.
