We have talked about Penn Station a few times (just type it in the search box on the right side) and I have tried just about every sandwich on the menu. I love the Italian, I like the Pizza sub just fine and my wife usually gets the Chicken Teriyaki.
Btw, I can’t even mention chicken teriyaki without yelling ”chicken teriyaki boy!” You are not going to get that unless you watch “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” and if you don’t watch that show, we are not friends anymore.
Back on subject. This is the signature sandwich of Penn Station, the Philly Cheesesteak. Now, until I convince my wife that a trip to Philly just for cheesesteaks makes sense (10 hours), then I am not going to be the best person to review this. However, I have had plenty of imitations in my day.
What I Ate: Philly Cheesesteak; right around $7.00. Penn Station can get pricey once you add fries and a soda pop, so expect to pay around $9.00 for a combo.
As far as the taste…honestly, it is not very good. I ordered mine with mushrooms and onion and there were a ton of onions on this ‘wich. There was a thin layer of mozzarella and I found it to be dry. Pictures can be deceving because it looks like there is a lot of gooey cheese, but it didn’t really affect the taste.
Also, it looks like there is a lot of fries, but they creatively spread them out in the basket to cover real estate. The fries are the standard hand cut and fried in peanut oil. I like their fries, I just wish they would give me the hook up!
Would I Buy It Again? Cheesesteak, no. Penn Station, sure. The signature sandwich just might be their worst, except for the artichoke and that sounds terrible. I think that I will stick with the Italian as I can’t find anything else on the menu that I like.
