Two More Stops in Philadelphia

I couldn't go to Philadelphia and not have a Philly cheesesteak for lunch.  I had been looking forward to this even more than to my (excellent) Grinder in Connecticut.  We had been advised by some local experts that the best cheesesteak would be found at Tony Luke's so we headed over there after finishing at Independence Park.  It's easy to know you are close, even from the freeway.

Tony has an all-weather counter on the sidewalk.

Inside there was a good sized crowd picking up their sandwiches.  There is one window for ordering and another for pickup.

Here's the final result which was really disappointing.  Lots of beef, cheese and onions but very little flavor.  I was expecting something more along the lines of an original Mayslack's garlic roast beef.

Our final stop on the way out of town toward the northwest was at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  Not to see any paintings, just to see the stairs.  These are the stairs that Rocky made famous.

With that accomplished, we could move on to our next state capitol.
