Prospect Park is Getting Its Cheesesteak Factory at Long Last

Windsor Terrace Cheesesteak Factory
As a frequent patron of Bene's Pizza and Uncle Louie G's on Prospect Park Southwest, I've often wondered about the little Cheesesteak Factory storefront sandwiched, if you will, between the two. In all my visits for pizza and ice cream it's never been open. Until now...

The Prospect Park Southwest Cheesesteak Factory officially opened yesterday. Not surprisingly their bread and butter is cheesesteaks of both the beef and chicken variety. I was pleased to see broccoli rabe getting some love on their menu. Their Prospect Park Cheesesteak: grilled onions, broccoli rabe (or spinach) with provolone cheese sounds pretty excellent.

The menu also includes Italian sausages, hot dogs, hamburgers and waffle fries. Mmm...waffle fries. And fear not vegetarians, there's more for you than just fries and onion rings. Veggie options include the veggie sandwich (grilled eggplant, roasted peppers, broccoli rabe, or spinach), the veggie supreme (grilled green peppers, portabella mushrooms, onions, grilled eggplant and grilled zuchinni) and a veggie burger.

Lawman and I might just have to hit these guys up next time we decide to picnic in the park. Any early Cheesesteak Factory reports from the field?

hey if you do, let us know if you think that its a little strange. I get a kind of "family" feel, if you know what I mean. I mean, seems like they may be involved in some sort of other business. Maybe "Waste Management" or something of the like?

oh and the food, its kind of meh. The waffle fries are good, but the cheesesteak could actually be better (I prefer Carl's Cheesesteak on 3rd Avenue & 34th in Manhattan)

I tried the cheesesteak and it was fabulous. The service was excellent and the place was spotless. I don't know about eateries in Manhattan, but here in Brooklyn, this place was great! Highly recommend

Last time I ate at the Cheesesteak factory I had a cheesesteak with onions. Not bad. Only problem is I pissed out of my butthole for 2 days straight. Might have been a bit undercooked. But other than that it tasted great.

Yea the food is great. I really have to say I was impressed with the high quality of meat that they use. The only thing is, there was a man named Frank, who is about 6' 1" and 700 lbs, standing right next to me. I cant eat with a person that large in the vicinity of my food.

This place has an outright amazing chicken wrap. They also have this Greek. Cheesesteak with Taziki sauce that is out of this world. Two thumbs up.

Real family atmosphere...and not like the first comment stated. The food is getting better as they are putting up new selections. Definitely recommend this place.
