One Last Run?

February 14th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Over the last year I’ve been struggling over what I should do about this blog.  For a while there I wanted to give it up for good but then I realized that I have a mission in life to spread the word about cheesesteaks.  Starting this Spring I will begin reviewing cheesesteaks once again.  My goal is to bring my total cheesesteak reviews up to 100.  What happens after that is up to you, the readers.  If you want/ask for more reviews you will get them.  If not then you won’t see any new reviews from me again.  I’ll keep the site up and running but that’s about all.

So now, I need some help from all of you.  I am looking for new places to review.  I have about 10 places that have already been requested, but after that I’m not too sure where else I should review.  So I need your feedback and ideas.

The first places I will be reviewing (in no particular order) are:

  1. Ted’s Place in Conshohocken
  2. Heritage Hoagies in  Huntington Park
  3. Hog Island Steaks in Phoenixville
  4. Ice House Steaks and Pizza in Pottstown
  5. Dakota Pizza in Wynnewood
  6. Pagano’s Steaks in Philadelphia
  7. Philip’s Steaks in Philadelphia
  8. Sonny’s Famous Steaks in Philadelphia
  9. Paradise Pizza in Lansdown
  10. John’s Village Market Deli in Wayne or Berwyn
  11. Marzella’s Pizza in Collegeville
  12. South Philly Steak and Fries in Pottstown

Be on the lookout for my new reviews in the coming weeks.  Thanks for checking out my blog and I hope to hear from some of you soon.

    Thunderbird is my favorite and has a great cheesesteak but I think it depends on the cook. I’ve gotten some greasy ones like the one you got. A couple other favorites are Delco’s Cheesesteaks in Chadds Ford. It’s won some awards in the passed and has some great ones. Joe’s Pizza in marple is great too. Same owners as the Dairy Cottage. Sometimes I think they skimp on the cheese a little. Lastly, try out Civera’s Deli in Drexel Hill. That place is amazing and they make you a sandwich big enough for two meals, but too tasty not to finish in one.

    Kevin –

    There was a legendary lunch truck on the Penn campus back in the 80’s called Sophie’s that made unbelievably good steaks.

    I just found a post on Chowhound which claims that Sophie sold the truck years ago and went back home to Greece but that her son in law Yanni still makes the same steaks from a truck at 20th & Pine called “Yanni’s.” You must try him out and let us know how they are.

    I don’t know how far out of Philly you travel but this place in Lancaster has an excellent cheesesteak and their fries are great too. http://www.454grill.com/
