Abner's Cheesesteaks of University City Restaurant Review

: A constant stream of Penn and Drexel students, locals and Abner's devotees go in and out of this black, white and chrome steak shop. Queue up to order a steak sandwich with fried onions, a melt of provolone, or drizzled with Cheez Whiz. Hoagies, wraps, gyros, pasta and wings are also on the menu, but it's the cheesesteaks that keep Abner's hopping.
