West Chester Cheesesteak???

The best is Jimmy C's Steaks on Market Street. They just opened. Awesome with great meat and Jersey rolls.

I believe Pietro's Prime in West Chester does this.

Pig Out Take Out in Glen Mills

Of three of the BBQ places below - I've had pork sandwhiches at atll three. Mabel's is the best and maybe one of the best pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had. And cole slaw is GREAT. Pig Out is pretty good. Huge sandwich and they actually give you a free beer (or two) while you eat or wait. As for Fatt Cat BBQ. I had a sandwhich recently and it was like cafeteria food.

Looking for Creative In Car Dining Tool

Thanks to yet another disaster of spilling food while eating in my car (see link here:)
http://thatblueyak.blogspot.com/2008/...

..I need a new method. I usually cover a book or magazine with a plastic bag, but every 5th time or so I spill food on myself or it slides off the "tray". Has anyone ever seen or used a good in- car food tray? If so, where did you get it?

Buffalo Chicken Wings in Chestco and Beyond

I"m looking for the best Buffalo wings in Chester County (and Delaware and Montgomery) if not TOO far from West Chester). In the West Chester area, my favorites - in order are wings at: Victory Beer (Downingtown), Wegmans (Downingtown), Wings to Go (West Chester).

West Chester Cheese Steak?

I used to think John's Pizza was best in Frazer. New Haven is up there as well as Pepper Mill. But the real winner in Westtown Meat and Deli. It's right next to Stetson Middle School. They make it out of fresh rib-eye (as they're really a butcher shop). It may be the best cheesesteak anywhere. And they are HUGE. Note that it's take-out only

Thoughts on the "new" Victory Brewing?

One thing that you can't go wrong with are the wings. In fact, it's either Tuesday or Wednesday but they have an unadvertised special of half off wings. You get a bigole plate of wings for $3.50!

Great pulled pork bbq to take home?

I would vote for Mabelle's as well. I'm more of an Italian style pork sandwich person but their pulled pork is GREAT!

Best Pulled Pork BBQ Catered!

I've had two pulled pork sandwiches from Mabel's in West Chester and they're probably the best I've ever had. And their slaw is great to boot. I was talking to the owner yesterday and she said they also do catering.

Bisque, Chili and Hearty Soups around Chester County

I'm looking for the best bisque (lobster or shrimp), Chili and heaty soups in the Chester county area (will consider Delaware and Montgomery county as well). I've been frequenting Zoup in Frazer for the lobster bisque and the various chili they offer - very good. The bisque at the Downingtown Wegmans is also very good.

Five Guys Burgers

I ate at the Five Guys on 202 about 2 weeks ago and was not that impressed. The fries were great which is nice because fries are usually an after thought. I had the double cheeseburger with everything and it was fine. As for burgers in the Chester County area, Zak's is the way to go. I've stopped there about 3 times in the past year on the way to Delaware and they have the best handmade burgers. (It's in the same "shopping center" as Hatfield' s Seafood).

Best Breakfast in the West Chester area?

I had Breakfast at Mrs. Mike's (across from the Giant) the other day - first in a long time. Great breakfast and service. Also, while most places can do eggs OK, many places in the area can't do hash browns or any type of potatoe - (hear that Penns Table)? As for portions? HUGE. Including enough sausage for a meal on it's own.

The great cheesesteak debate...what would you trade it for?

I agree with Passadumbkeg. The roased pork sandwich is much tastier than the cheesesteak. When at Reading Terminal next time with a friend, buy a cheesesteak and a DiNic Roasted Pork. Split with your friend and I'm sure you'll agree

Philly area food fests and competion list

Does anyone have a link to any Philly area food festivals and competitions? West Chester has a restaurant fest in the fall as well as a Chili fest (competition). I'm looking to find some other area events. Thanks.

HELP, I can't find decent pizza in Chester County!!!!

As a pizza person - I can tell you that Jack's Pizza in the Whiteland Shopping Center. If you go to my profile and click my website, I did a review a while ago. Basically, it's great super crisp (semi thin crust) pizza. They always have great selections of pizza. All of the workers are Latino and they always have soccer on the TV. Wehn you're eating the pizza, you'll think you're in NYC.

Where to buy fresh crawfish in the Philly area?

That is a tough one. I haven't bought fresh for a few years but if memory serves me right, It is very seasonal. Hills Seafood used to get it in late Winter/early Spring (I could be wrong. I remember doing a bit of research and found out best to order online from South. Find a friend to split the costs.

West Chester dining

My picks are High Street Cafe and Spence Cafe. I've been to High Street Cafe at least 20 times and have had great meals. One of the best meals of my life was a blackened tuna topped with a crawfish au grautin. I've asked for it several times (when it wasn't on the specials list) and they made it for me - no problem.
Spence is also a great meal everytime.

Riverstone in Exton

Food is OK but for lunch, check out Vickers Tavern. I had a hot roast beef sandwhich there about 2 months ago and it was the best I've ever had. Great roll, great cheese - perfect!
