The Field is Set!!

2024 is our 5th annual March Cheesesteak Madness. March Cheesesteak Madness was born from the Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure.

We have one field of 64 entries. We have 2 Champions. A Judge’s Champion and a People’s Champion.

For the Judge’s Champion; Judge’s eat all 64 entries. We judge 2 rounds at a time. The judge’s keep eating until we have a Judge’s Champion. The winning cheesesteak will have been eaten and judged 3 times. Consistency does matter.

The People’s Champion is chosen by online voting. Voting is done on PhillyBite Magazine website.

March Cheesesteak Madness is a 64 cheesesteak entry bracket style tournament that mirrors the college basketball tournament.  The 64 Cheesesteaks are broken into four regions.  The regions are; 1. The Philadelphia region.  2. The Delaware County + 6, Delco + 6, region.  3. The NJ/DE region.  4. The Other Counties (Chester, Montgomery, Berks and Bucks) region. The ‘+6’ in Delco are from the Other Counties, OC, region. The OC’s cheesesteak scene has been booming and I had to move some cheesesteaks to the Delco region


Last year’s Champions; The People’s Champion; Leo’s Steak Shop, Folcroft, PA. The Judge’s Champion; Tony’s of West Reading, Reading, PA.


All of the cheesesteak entrants have videos on Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure’s YouTube channel.  Best way to search is; Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure at ……. ‘…….’ being the name of the place you are searching.
