My first time in Philly so I had to get a cheesesteak. The Reading Terminal Market is amazing with tons of food to buy and look at. I didn't know anything about any of the cheesesteak places so I picked this one in the middle...More

We went to Spataro's during the Flower Show so admittedly most places where overwhelmed with the number of people trying to buy food. The wait time was only 10 minutes so the cheese steak was a bit short on cheese and just wasn't the quality...More

I wandered into Reading terminal not really knowing what I was hungry for and then realized I couldn't leave Philly without having had a cheesesteak! I got in line at Spartaro's and amused myself with listening to them impatiently pull the orders out of those...More
