Veggie Cheesesteaks

All of the cheesesteaks can be made with seitan instead of beef. To make vegan, request "no cheese, no mayo". They also have some other vegetarian options, including a "veggie works" sub with avocado, grilled onions and peppers and cheese. Apparently deep-fried veggie items are cooking in the same deep-frier as the meat items. I've heard employees tell this to people ordering seitan sandwiches several times - I'm glad they know this would be an issue for vegetarians/vegans.

This is one of our favorite "fast-food" choices in the Mission. I always order the bbq seitan cheesesteak, "no cheese, no mayo". My girlfriend Erin loves the "veggie works". Tastes great both fresh and after sitting around overnight.

I love the seitan cheesesteaks. They have several types (avocado, jalapeno, etc), all of which have thinly-sliced and seasoned seitan. These are great hot subs, which I heartily recommend to lacto-ovo veggies. The sides are generally good too, with garlic fries and fairly good fried mozzarella sticks. If you're in the mood to pig out, then Jay's is a good choice. The prices are a bit higher than a typical cheesesteak joint, but it's worth it.
