Radio host Glen Macnow’s annual sandwich safari is coming to a close and the top winners are chronicled in this Philadelphia Inquirer article.
The top sandwich was a hot roast beef sandwich from the original Nick’s Roast Beef in South Philadelphia. I must admit my one experience with Nick’s Roast Beef was underwhelming but I’m inspired to give it a second try. Thus far, for my money, Ye Olde Ale House in Lafayette Hill still serves the best roast beef sandwiches I’ve ever had — carved from a steamship round behind the bar.
