It’s Good To Have Options

The title of this post is a line my wife and I have used with each other for years when apt circumstances arise. But it could also work to describe the experience of ordering a cheesesteak at Trev’s Philly Steaks of Feasterville, PA. While there has been an unmistakable trend of steak purveyors adding additionalContinue reading “It’s Good To Have Options”

Top 10 Cheesesteaks in the Philly Region

I considered four factors when determining which of the many cheesesteaks I’ve eaten belong on this list: In general, I prefer a cheesesteak in which the meat, cheese, and roll are all proportionate to each other over steaks with massive amounts of meat, cheese, or both. But there are exceptions to that rule, as you’reContinue reading “Top 10 Cheesesteaks in the Philly Region”

My Year-Long Cheesesteak Odyssey – and What’s Next

*There is an alphabetical list of links to all of my cheesesteak posts at the bottom of this post. While I’ve always lived in the Philadelphia region, I didn’t start eating cheesesteaks at the rate of a little over one per week until roughly a year ago. It was at that point that circumstances andContinue reading “My Year-Long Cheesesteak Odyssey – and What’s Next”

Guido’s: Bringing a Little Brooklyn to Philly Steaks

I’ve returned to a couple places that confirmed their top tier status recently. But it’s been a few weeks since I have tried a steak that was both new to me and extremely impressive. That mini slump came to an end today with my first visit to Guido’s Steaks of Bensalem, PA, which is inContinue reading “Guido’s: Bringing a Little Brooklyn to Philly Steaks”

Something Old – Something New

I mentioned in my last post that I had a big week of cheesesteak-eating ahead of me. It got underway Tuesday, when my friend Robert joined me for a pair. I’ll be accompanied by another friend Friday as well. The plan is to split steaks from two different shops both days. That would enable meContinue reading “Something Old – Something New”

Lunch at the Yardley Inn of Bucks County, PA

My wife and I had a lovely Saturday afternoon that was centered around lunch with our friends Tom and Bernadette.  They live in North Jersey, at least a couple hours from us, so we decided to pick a place that was relatively close to the half-way point between our two homes and settled on TheContinue reading “Lunch at the Yardley Inn of Bucks County, PA”

Return to Curly’s – and Where to Find Shaved Ribeye

In last week’s post on Angelo’s Pizzeria, I mentioned that there had been a tremendous sense of anticipation leading up to my first visit to Curly’s Creations in the northern suburb of Levittown, Pennsylvania. While it’s a little less clear-cut now, they were unquestionably the most popular steak shop among the roughly 70,000 members ofContinue reading “Return to Curly’s – and Where to Find Shaved Ribeye”

Return to Da Vinci’s to Try the Pizza and Revisit their Steak

I gave a glowing report on Da Vinci’s Brick Oven Pizzeria of Feasterville, PA, back in January. But while that cheesesteak was fantastic, I regretted not being able to try their pizza. I went alone, leaving me to eat the entire steak. And they don’t sell pizza by the individual slice. It’s a large –Continue reading “Return to Da Vinci’s to Try the Pizza and Revisit their Steak”
