One day, Jake and I will go on a sandwich mission around town.
Stop by a few places, and eat half (or one-third) sandwiches to compare.
Glenn Macnow ate forty-five, but not all at the same time.
Here’s how they went:
1. John’s Roast Pork on East Snyder Avenue in South Philadelphia.
2. Steve’s Prince of Steaks, Philadelphia
3. Chink’s Steaks, Northeast
4. Talk of the Town, South Philadelphia
5. Grey Lodge Pub, Northeast
6. Slack’s Hoagie Shack, Northeast
7. Sonny’s Famous Steaks, Old City
8. Tony Luke’s, South Philadelphia
9. White House Sub Shop, Atlantic City
10. Dalessandro’s, Roxborough
I had a Steve’s steak about a month ago and was less than impressed by the Comly Rd (by Nabisco) establishment. The meat was a little on the “tough” side. And at 11pm on a Friday it was full of Archbishop Ryan and George Washington HS tough guys. Though they’re the only place I know of that has “American Cheese on the side.” How do they do that?
Dalessandro’s has a reputation of always being closed. What good is a cheesesteak place if you can’t get it when you’re jonesing at 12:45am? Fortunately, Chubby’s is open right across the street.
Ostensibly, the article was written for Senators Obama or Clinton, neither of whom, has had a cheesesteak on their visits.
