Launched in November 2020, Cheat’s Cheesesteak was founded with one goal in mind: take a fine dining approach to fast casual food, focusing on high quality ingredients and proper preparation techniques.

Founded by Partners Ryan Hart, Greg Balch and Hannah Smith, Cheat’s Cheesesteak started as a 3-Person Pop-Up event at local breweries to introduce Charlotte to the magic of Cheez Whiz. After a year and a half of Pop Ups all around Charlotte, including the Panthers Stadium, Cheat’s Cheesesteak Parlor finally opened the doors at its first location in Plaza Midwood on July 13th, 2022.

Located at 913 Pecan Avenue next to @ricosacai and @villanisbakery, Cheat’s focuses on Take Out and 3rd Party Delivery. We do offer limited on-site dining on our patio as well as the shared picnic tables in the common area. We take dietary restrictions very seriously and offer a variety of vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. In an effort to serve the most authentic cheesesteaks we source our bread from Liscio’s Bakery in Philadelphia, serve only Certified Angus Beef Ribeye and offer a variety of cheese options including our favorite, Cheez Whiz.

Cheat’s is operated by the 1957 Hospitality Group.
