Best Cheesesteak in Manhattan?

I am desperately seeking a tasty, worth-eating cheesesteak. I've found and really enjoy BB Sandwich Bar on 3rd and MacDougal. This satisfies the craving, but it's not the traditional cheesesteak I'm seeking. I want a delicious sandwich that makes my mouth water while I'm eating it and makes me crave the next one. I've seen people recommend Carl's, which I had one time and was disappointed by. I've read some posts on Wogie's and can't say I'm compelled to try it out based on what I've read. Is there a cheesesteak worth having in Manhattan? If the answer is no, it's no. Thanks!!

John' s Pizza

Lombardi's is good, provided you don't have to wait outside in the cold. And it's definitely a tourist spot. I prefer Arturo's on Houston and Thompson. Plus they have a full menu.

Where to eat for a college group

City Bakery's hot chocolate is delicious - rich, creamy and thick. (I've also had Jacques Torres' hot chocolate, which is also delicious, at 350 Hudson St). If you like marshmellows in your hot chocolate, City Bakery's are amazing. Fitting 10 people is possible but less likely at peak times. The cookies are awesome too. (This is my first posting, so I hope this is helpful.)
