The ubiquitous bright-orange color scheme of the countertops, light fixtures, tiling, and even staff T-shirts at High Stakes Cheese Steaks might make customers feel a little like James entering the Giant Peach. But you’re here for the classic Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, which are well-crafted and enormous, and require a bit of lingo to order. You can get them “wit or witout” onions and with three varieties of cheese: “Pro, am, or wiz” (a.k.a. provolone, American, or Cheeze Whiz). There are plenty of other ways to diversify your sandwich—mushrooms, pickles, bacon, Russian dressing—plus sides like perfectly crunchy waffle fries and spicy breaded chicken wings. The restaurant’s slogan, “See you in 2 days,” describes their customers’ inability to stay away for longer than 48 hours. It’s a claim to be believed. Between the friendly milieu, the quality food, and modern touches like wireless Internet and two flat-screen TVs, High Stakes is worthy of repeat visits.
