Philadelphia, PA - The last stop on my adventure with my Amigo Dan and were headed out to Roma's Pizza. They have been serving the good people of Roxborogh since the 1970s, so they must be doing something right.
Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure at Roma's Pizza
My first impression, I loved the old pictures on the wall, including a prominently displayed Bruno Sammartino. They also had indie tables, but of course, they were closed off due to COVID-19. Basically Roma's Pizza has the look, feel smell, and taste of an old school pizza shop.
The bad news is they don't have parking. The excellent news for travelers and everyone else over 21 is you can pick up your Cheesesteak and head over to Wissahickon Brewing.
I called our order in for pickup. Since I didn't see anything special on the online menu, we ordered some basic cheesesteaks with fried onions and mushrooms. As soon as I unwrap mine, I could tell this would fall under the Old School Pizza Shop category.
It had a traditional roll with a nice crust on it. The meat was on the thicker slice side and 'kind of' chopped. I could really taste the meat and it had a decent amount of cheese that was melted nicely through the whole Cheesesteak, with a fair amount of fried onions.
The mushrooms we're the week link as they did not spend enough time on the grill with the meat. I did like the cheap price tag and the fact that we could take it to Wissahickon Brewing Company.
The brewery has a fair selection of diverse beers. Luckily they had a good selection of sour and fruity beers because Amigo Dan kept ordering the beer I wanted.
