I once made the mistake of ordering a "Kosher Corned Beef Sandwich" at a Holiday Inn in Charleston, West Virginia. What I got was two thin slices of corned beef on white bread with lettuce, tomato, American cheese, pickles and mayonnaise. (Courtesy Warning: I don't know if it's still there, but it was the Holiday Inn on the Elk.) Oh, and I was told their best wine was SHAB-liss.


Corned beef and cheese does not sound too Kosher

I doubt they had the slightest idea what Kosher meant.

Maybe the corned beef itself was Kosher prior to the construction of the sandwich?
 
My cheesesteak experience is extremely limited but mayo doesn't sound horrible to the point where I wouldn't at least give it a try.

Perhaps the corned beef itself was kosher, but the completed sandwich was not.  We see that kind of verbal confusion every once in a while.

Penn Station, a cheesesteak chain, was founded in Cincinnati and the proprietor has made a fortune on selling cheesesteaks with provolone, banana peppers and mayo. I really like it that way.

And yes, I know that's not traditional and yes, if I ever went to Philly I'd get it the traditional way.

I had a sausage and pepper sub from Penn Station. It wasn't bad at all. In fact, I think I'll get another one soon.

I checked out Penn Station.  The nearest one is 311 miles away in Virginia.

I would try the mayo if it was cut with some horseradish.

For some weird reason, mayo seems to be a standard thing on cheesesteaks outside the Philadelphia area. It's caused quite a few "you screwed up my order" debates between my friends who have left the area and sandwich shop workers who insist that a "Philly cheesesteak" (which we never call it) is supposed to come with mayo.
Our hoagies (no one calls them subs here) are served with oil instead of mayo by default too. You can ask for a cheesesteak or a hoagie with mayo, but in Philly it isn't the default option if you don't specify.
One weird cheesesteak variant - go about an hour north of Philly to the Allentown/Bethlehem/Easton area, and they put pickle slices on cheesesteak.

I have actually ordered a cheesesteak with pickles a few times. It's a good combination. The saltiness and vinegary tang of the pickles pairs well with the steak and grease.

As a Philly native I would never order a cheesesteak with mayo.  But I do enjoy a burger with mayo, so the combination of beef and mayo isn't really bad.  Check out my favorite cheeseburger at Dilly's Corner, In New Hope PA.  It's two hours away, so I don't get them often.

See my post above.
 
There are cheesesteak hoagies with mayo, lettuce and tomato.
 
There are pizza steaks with or without mozzarella or provolone cheese and pizza sauce. 
 
There are no cheesesteaks with mayo unless you're not a Philadelphian. It's heresy.

California Cheesesteaks have lettuce tomato and mayo on them. Oil and vinegar are great on a cheesesteak. There's a place near my office that makes a Body Bag.. it's a cheesesteak with an Italian sub on top of it.. so probably ham, salami, capicola, then lettuce, tomato, onion, and you can add egg and/or french fries.

Whenever I order a cheese steak I usually go condiment less.  Steak, cheese whiz, peppers and onions is enough for me.  To me, the cheese is the condiment.  This one time though I ordered a steak, american cheese, pepper and onions on a grinder at a bodega in Brooklyn and they put mayo on it.  It was actually not that bad. I mean, I wouldn't kick it out of bed for eating crackers.

I can go either way. If the bread's not ideal which to me means a sturdy freshly baked roll, please keep the mayo to yourself. If the roll is softer and prone to disintegrating, I welcome the mayo which seems to create a relatively impermeable layer that keeps the hopefully moist filling from destroying your bun. I'd always prefer the stellar bread and skip the mayo, though.

That's a riot!
The Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia very briefly, some years back, had a stand that billed itself as selling New York style deli. I forget the name, but it also led me to believe that it would be some sort of Jewish style deli. I ordered a corned beef sandwich and the guy grabbed what looked like a supermarket rye bread (which would never be used at a quality deli) and asked me if I wanted mustard or mayo. I just said, "Never mind," and went to a different stand for lunch. I think that stand was owned by someone that owns one of the other stands in the Terminal and it lasted maybe a couple weeks before they shut it down and tried something else with the space.

Many years ago in College Park, Md. there was a place called Earl's Philly Hoagies. One of the offerings was 'cheesesteak hoagie', that included lettuce, tomato and mayo.  I've seen that offering many places since then.

Mayo on a cheesesteak is sacrilege.  I think it would get you the death penalty in Philly. ...Maybe life without parole if you have a good lawyer.   Ketchup, on the other hand, is more common than many believe.  I have several Philly friends, and have discussed this with them.  Some will put ketchup on their cheesesteak, and they said it's not that rare to see it.  Most Philly people don't use ketchup on cheesesteaks, but a good number do.    As for mayo, again, ... just don't do it.   For me, it's the traditional meat, cheese (whiz or white American), and fried/grilled onions.   I occasionally do the "Allentown style" with pickles added, as well.

I will add this.. although I don't mind mayo on a cheesesteak, if there is Whiz on a cheesesteak I will never get mayo. I don't like Whiz and Mayo together. Other types of cheese, but not Whiz.
 
My favorite thing is a cheesesteak on top of a garlic bread. I had a place where I grew up that knew that's what I ordered.. now I have place where I live. Very very rarely do I order one without garlic bread and they always ask me. When I first went in and requested it, they had no idea how to enter it into their computer. If I get one of the young girls taking my order I usually say "they know what to do", meaning the family who owns the place. They make the best garlic bread I've ever had.

Cheesesteak on garlic bread sounds great!   What is the name of the place that does this? 
 
Thanks!
