Chiddy's Cheese Steaks
Owners Mike Chidester, Daron Benbenisti, and Evan Deitch of Chiddy’s Cheesteak in Farmingdale have been neighborhood friends for a while now. After 25 years spent in corporate life, Mike Chidester chose to open what was the original Chiddy’s Cheesesteak food truck in 2014. They took a family nickname “Chiddy,” coupled it with a personal passion for cheesesteaks and brought it to the market via food truck. They then added a second truck for catering purposes and four years later, have decided to open a storefront after the addition of business partners Benbenisti and Deitch.
At Chiddy’s they bring the authentic Philly Cheesesteak to Long Island offering many renditions of it. You can either choose to “Build Your Own” or pick from a variety of mouthwatering specialty cheesesteaks including Chiddy’s Signature, Chipotle Chicken and Squealin’ Philly. Aside from sourcing all their rolls and steak from Philly, they use only the original cheese whiz on sandwiches. At Chiddy’s Cheesesteak, everything they have to offer is homemade even their aioli dips which pair greatly with their delicious empanadas and fresh cut fries.
