I recently took a 24-hour trip to the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. With that said, in my limited time there, going for a cheesesteak was non-negotiable.
But choosing the right place to experience my first real cheesesteak was the tough part. So I consulted with my best friend, Vanessa, whom I was visiting and asked her where her go-to cheesesteak spot was. She told me we were going to Chubby’s Cheesesteaks.
Chubby’s is little diner in suburban Philly and they make a damn good cheesesteak!
Normally, I’m a chicken on a wheat sub with provolone kinda girl but since I wanted the authentic cheesesteak experience I did it the “right way.”
I got myself a huge, mouth-watering Cheesesteak with peppers, onions and Cheez Whiz. It was everything I hoped it would be. I even wrapped up half of it and put it in my backpack to bring back to Florida. (In case you were wondering, cheesesteaks are TSA-approved!)
People may tell you to go to Geno’s or Pat’s but you don’t have to brace the crowds to get a good cheesesteak, Chubby’s knows how to do it right!
PS – Do not call them “Phillys,” they are Cheesesteaks. I learned this the hard way after Vanessa corrected me about 20 times.
Also, putting Cheez Whiz on your hoagie is not the “right way.” Word on the street is that this is a common debate amongst Philly-natives.
