Completely. Amazing. Cheesesteaks.

The majority of the times I have visited Calvin's Cheesesteaks, I order the cheesesteak. Why? Because this sandwich will make your pupils dilate with joy!

I usually get the Beef Cheesesteak with grilled onions, peppers, mushrooms, cheese and gravy. Sometimes additionally with mayo, lettuce, and tomato. The prices are exceedingly reasonable ($9.00 to $12.00 per cheesesteak) in view of the fact that I have never had any Cheesesteaks that even approach the quality I have found at this restaurant. I have met folks from Philadelphia that swear the cheesesteaks here are better than any they have had in the cheesesteak homeland.

Additionally, there is a great menu of BBQ, Hogies, and Sammiches besides the Cheesesteaks. I have partaken of a small sampling of the Hogies and Sammiches and any I have had have demonstrated above par excellence (and I have yet to try the weekend BBQ, but I have friends that have had it, and say it is some of the best they have ever had).

The folks who run the place are very helpful to any needs you may have around your meal. The owner, whose name I forget, named the restaurant after the fellow who taught him how to make Philly Cheesesteaks when hew grew up in Philadelphia years ago, hence - Calvin's Cheesesteaks.

The ambiance is a simple enclave of Philadelphia culture here in Silicon Valley, with the most important aspect being the smell of cooking cheesesteaks hanging heavy in the air.

The bottom line: Come here, have a cheesesteak, and prepare to have your taste buds stunned by joy.

Calvin's makes a tasty Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, complete with your choice of peppers, onions, mushrooms, etc. However, there is little or no inside seating and this can be a problem in cold or inclement weather.

Prices are slightly higher then average.

The owner, Calvin, makes sure you're properly taken care of.
