Has the New York Philly Cheese Steak Cart Always Been There?

While roaming the streets of midtown the other day, I noticed a cart I had never seen before on the northwest corner of Park and 49th. At a glance, it looked like just another Halal cart, but then I noticed the name – New York Philly Cheese Steak.

Is this place new? Has anyone tried it? Let us know in the comments…
