In 2019, the brand launched the NY Cheesesteak by Pat LaFrieda, and due to the popularity of the hero, the brand developed two new menu items to showcase the fan favorite flavor.

“It’s been nearly 18 months since we launched the NY Cheesesteak by Pat LaFrieda, and it’s quickly become one of our most popular items outside of our hot dogs and crinkle cut fries,” states James Walker, Senior Vice President, Restaurants. “Given its popularity, we thought it was only fitting to add the great flavor of the NY Cheesesteak to our lineup of topped hot dogs and fries.”

The Nathan’s Famous NY Cheesesteak hero, NY Cheesesteak Hot Dog and NY Cheesesteak Fries, features Pat LaFrieda’s premium quality black angus ribeye, caramelized onions, LaFrieda’s Butcher Reserve Steak Sauce and American cheese. The hero is served on a Balthazar Baguette.
