I have wanted to stop at Amato's for a long time, but I was expecting baked sliced meat & cheese, like a Philly Cheese Steak. The meat, cheese, added onion, and mushrooms were chopped and delicious. The parts of the filling sometimes fell out, but...More

We ordered a half of a cheesesteak and an order of fries and split it three ways and still had leftovers.

I made the trek to San Jose just to eat this delicious cheese steak, and I was more than happy with it! It was so good I forgot to take a picture before eating it all. Great value and amazing cheesesteak!

I can't tell you what to get on your cheesesteak only that you need to get one now. The meat is piled high, the cheese is flowing and the fries can feed an entire group (or one teenager)
