Critics, upstate: When Chen is in the mood for a big cheesesteak—and we mean big—he places an order at Claymont Steak Shop. Staffers stuff a pile of thinly sliced ribeye onto a fresh roll, then finish it off with American and provolone cheese. You can’t go wrong with the classic, but the Buffalo chicken cheesesteak is another hot ticket. (3526 Philadelphia Pike, Claymont, 798-5319)
