A Cheesesteak Query [split from MSP]

Not sure if anyone pointed this out, but Chinks and Steves Prince are no where near Center City or any other tourist attractions (read expensive cab ride and thats IF they will take you there). If you have a car the directions are simple, but not exactly closeby.

I suggest to visitors to try Pats/Genos for the atmosphere and open 24/7. Once is enough though. Cheesesteak-wise my personal favorites are #1 John's Roast Pork (if hours work) and #2 Tony Luke's. Steves Prince and Chinks are also very good, but not near CC as I stated.

Downtown Philly Recommendations - July 24-27

Radiccho cafe in Old City on 4th and Wood is very good (not sure about how the lunch menu compares to dinner, but there is plenty of parking during the day.

2 Days 2 People 2 Hoagies 2 Cheese Steaks.. Where to go?

Obviously check out the Reading terminal market as many will soon recommend. But here are a few my personal favorite sandwiches outside the RTM:

Old Original Nick's Roast Beef (20th/Jackson only)
John's Roast Pork for a cheesesteak
Sarcone's for a hoagie

Arriving late night at PHL, where to eat?

For a quick sandwich with easy parking/access you should try Shanks Pier 40 (Del ave/Christian). Its just past the WW Bridge right off 95N, but you can take the BF Bridge instead to 676.The Chicken Italiano (Pan seared chicken with sharp prov and broc rab) is excellent. They are usually open till after 11.
