Hi, all you people who have been searching for JJ’s Philly Cheesesteaks and finding my blog. There are a lot of you, so people must be excited about this place opening. I stopped in for lunch today and am here to report on the place. First of all you can see the menu on their website. Prices are $5.75 for a sandwich and a buck or two for fries or a drink. I had the Ben Franklin, aka a classic Philly cheesesteak with steak, onions, Cheeze Wiz, and provolone. It’s not a sandwich for the un-hungry. Now, let me say, I have never had a Philly cheesesteak from Philly, I am no expert. I can only tell you what I tasted: cheesy, well-seasoned, very filling. This is perfect drunk food, people (I’m sure those of you from Philly already know this).
The interior is nice, a lot of exposed brick, hardwood floors, leather chairs, minimal decorations. It was pretty empty when I went in, but for 2 pm on a
Friday at a place that hasn’t officially opened yet, I wouldn’t expect it to be much more crowded. Also, to be noted: they’re only accepting cash now. And, you can call in your order and get takeout.
They are having their official grand opening tomorrow and in celebration are having a special from 12 pm to 12 am, $1.99 sandwiches. They were handing out cards to receive the promotion, but I bet if you walked in without one you could still get it. They plan on staying open until 4 am on Saturday so this will definitely be a late night spot.
