First Look at Wichita Subs & More: The newest Philly cheesesteak option in town

We originally broke the story last month about a new Philly cheesesteak restaurant opening in Wichita at the former TOPS Steaks and Hoagies space at 2251 E 21st St… N.

That place is now open as Wichita Subs & More made their debut in Wichita earlier today. We stopped by over lunch to get a first-hand look at what to expect with the new restaurant that hopes to pick up the void of the cheesesteak offerings in town.

For starters, the interior was cleaned up with a new side wall put up to give the kitchen more space. For now, this place is a carryout only option.

More importantly, how about the food?

It’s important to note that the owners are from Delaware and brought their east coast style of cheesesteaks to Wichita. There are two different styles though of cheesesteaks you can order: a Philly with Cheez Whiz or Delaware style with slice of Provolone or American cheese. A big popular part about many cheesesteaks is the Amoroso rolls. I spoke to the owners and due to many factors along with it being 2020, Wichita Subs & More contracted the local Bagatelle Bakery to make their fresh hoagie rolls.

On my visit, I ordered two cheesesteaks; one done Philly style and the other Delaware style. It was hard to decide between the two, so I had to order both and find out for myself which one I thought was better. They asked how I wanted it made and I said to surprise me with whatever they feel is best.

This is what I received:

After trying them both, there was no doubt in my mind I loved the Delaware style much more. Mine came with provolone cheese, spicy pepper relish, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise and ketchup. Don’t get me wrong my Philly style was great with the loads of meat sitting on the bed of Cheez Whiz but the Delaware was where it was at for me.

There was so much going on. For some, it may not be the most visually appealing sandwich but let me reassure you, it’s awesome. It was not really greasy nor overly salty. The meat had the right amount of saltiness with the spicy pepper relish offering a tad bit of bite to give it some additional flavor. It was probably one of the most vibrant and flavorful cheesesteaks I’ve had in town.

It’s nice to finally have a dedicated local cheesesteak restaurant in town. I loved my first visit to Wichita Subs & More and plan to return soon.

Here’s their menu:

  1. A real philly does not have chez wiz. Don’t know where they came up with that. A real philly has white American cheese. Grew up in philly and only Gino’s put chez whiz.

  2. Leonard is 100% correct. No true Philadelphian would ever put cheese Whiz on a steak sandwich. Although I can eat a steak sandwich with cheese whiz, I]my first option is white American or Provalone.
