Goomba’s Delivers Again

Some of you may recall that I’m in the process of revisiting all of the steak shops that made my top ten last year. This is being done in preparation for updating that list to a revised top 20 this coming fall. Holding down the number two spot on the initial list was Goomba’s PizzariaContinue reading “Goomba’s Delivers Again”

Crossing the Delaware for One of Jersey’s Best Steaks

This week’s cheesesteak outing took me to Palmyra, New Jersey, for a return visit to the shop that held down the number six spot on my top ten list last year. Cockadoodle Dan’s has only been in business since 2020 and is known for chicken wings in addition to having rapidly gained a reputation forContinue reading “Crossing the Delaware for One of Jersey’s Best Steaks”

Can Number One Remain on Its Lofty Perch

After Posting one of my all-time raves about the cheesesteak I had from Angelo’s Pizzeria in South Philadelphia last summer – then again after ranking them number one on my top ten list – I received mostly positive feedback from people who agreed with my lofty view of them. But there were also a fewContinue reading “Can Number One Remain on Its Lofty Perch”

Positive Trend in a Cheesesteak Hot Spot

There are various hot spots around the Philadelphia region where multiple steak shops with strong followings reside within a relatively small radius. One of the hottest right now is unquestionably an area that starts in far Northeast Philly, just across the city line from Bucks County, and works its way north and west into Feasterville-TrevoseContinue reading “Positive Trend in a Cheesesteak Hot Spot”

Blog Notes: Something Has to Give

It is with a touch of embarrassment that I need to confess to having bitten off more than I can chew. In early February – at the bottom of this post –  I committed to surveying the Philadelphia region’s Roast Pork Italiano sandwiches (R.P.I.) while continuing to do the same with cheesesteaks. That was aContinue reading “Blog Notes: Something Has to Give”

Back on the Cheesesteak Trail

At least for blogging purposes, I’ve left the kitchen for the time-being and returned to more familiar territory – the steak shop circuit. It had been two weeks since my last cheesesteak going into Wednesday’s lunch.  That’s when I made the 20-minute drive over to Wolf’s Superior Sandwiches in Aston, PA. The steak I ateContinue reading “Back on the Cheesesteak Trail”

Revisiting a Favorite for another Steak and Pie

A select few of the many places I’ve visited for cheesesteaks since starting this blog in 2021 have excelled at both steaks and pizza. One was Joey’s Pizza of Thorndale, PA, which served one of the steaks I placed among the honorable mentions on my Top 10 list last year. But that was overshadowed byContinue reading “Revisiting a Favorite for another Steak and Pie”

Trying the Philly Region’s Hot New Cheesesteak

I’ve mentioned many times that I regularly check in on Facebook’s cheesesteak boards for tips on where to find good ones. Since I began doing that in 2021 there has been a distinct pattern of a new steak shop – or at least new to the attention of most of the boards’ members – creatingContinue reading “Trying the Philly Region’s Hot New Cheesesteak”

Another Cheesesteak and Roast Pork Combo

After threatening to do so for the past couple weeks, I finally began revisiting the cheesesteak purveyors that made my top ten list last year. My intent is to put out a revised list that will also be expanded to a top 20 later this year. While I’m continuing to try new steaks, I alsoContinue reading “Another Cheesesteak and Roast Pork Combo”

Jersey Shore Staple Brings their Steaks to Bucks

This isn’t the first time I’ve pointed out that plans don’t always come to fruition; and it probably won’t be the last. At the end of my last post I stated an intention to begin a series of revisits to all of the steak shops that made my top ten list last year in preparationContinue reading “Jersey Shore Staple Brings their Steaks to Bucks”
