Philly Cheese Steak in NYC.

99 miles to philly was quite possibly the worst steak ive ever had. you lose all credibility, and then you quote the tourist cheese steak places.
blondie's has a good chicken cheese steak. I dont know what is so hard about making them similarly (i'm just saying in a similar fashion) than in philly, but no one has done it yet. i haven't tried carl's. i hear everywhere that is the best one. all ive had were cheap products that were heavy on the grease... just not how it is. in philly, you grow up knowing and being able to name multiple breadmakers. you don't in new york city. that's dedication to cheesesteaks/hoagies, etc.

Philly Raves and "Whats?"

Jim's is really bad - the worst the city has to offer. No idea why anyone ever mentions it as good. Steve's Prince of Steak is the best, bar none.
Pizza - Taconnelli's.
Next time try Tony Luke's Roast Pork Italian. I like Dinic's - I like Tony Luke's better.
