Tale of the Tape

(3) Eegee's

eegee's Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: All (Golf Links & Kolb pictured)


Cuisine: Sandwiches, Eegee's

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Entertaining Yelp review:  "I then sunk my teeth into the recommended ranch fries. The appearance made me feel like I was at a redneck dinner. These were crinkle fries with ranch on it with what looks like bacon bits. Yes, that sounds trashy but you know what it works for sure. It takes your mouth to flavor town and you are not going to want to leave."

(14) Frankie's South Philly Cheesesteaks

Frankie's Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Campbell-Grant


Cuisine: Sandwiches, Cheesesteaks

Yelp rating: 4.5 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "Djeatyet?

Djeatyet? [jeet-yet]: a food related question, how Philadelphians ask one another if they have eaten yet or are hungry; can be translated as "Did you eat yet?"

Well, didja? Whether your answer is yes or no, you need to get down to Frankie's and order up a cheesesteak that will make you think you're mowing down in the 215 before an "Iggle" game."
