Philadelphia, PA - Z is for Zoagie's and was an excellent day to be the Cheesesteak Guy. With an Uber ride request from a Facebook Philadelphia cheesesteak adventurer, and I ended up in Penns Grove, NJ. Soon to be famous for Zruce Zillis and Zoagie's unbelievable "Fried Hoagies Food Truck."
What's a Zoagie? Deep-fried Sandwich
Yes, it is Zoagie's Zorld and we just Zive in it. I've learned my lesson about food trucks in the past. Double, no triple check Facebook to find out exactly where the food truck will be that day. After some driving and additional Facebook research, I found Zoagie's.
I had the address in google maps but the line of cars parked on Virginia Ave was a clear indicator where Zoagie's Unbelievable Fried Hoagies was parked. They had a line of customers and a lot of people cooking in a small' ish food truck.
The menu looked amazing and it took a lot of self-restraint not to over order. The 'zhrimp & zrab collab' was calling to me. They have a canopy to cover the people in line to order and take credit cards. $15, you know that scares me.
I really wanted to hate this zheesesteak because two people that ordered after me got their food before me. Zoagie told me later that different things come off the grill faster, and I also think the traffic lights in Wilmington are against me so there is that. Either way plan on waiting for your food, and it is worth the wait.
The rolls are deep-fried, not the entire zheesesteak, and don't get hard crispy fried, they get good fried. There is a lot of delicious and well-chopped meat inside, and there's even more cheese melting into everything. There is a lot going on but the fried onions and green peppers do not get lost.
Everything on this well-balanced well put together zheesesteak contributes to its excellent taste. This was a very good stop. It will be a better stop when I get to show this beautiful Zheesesteak off and buy it a beer when the zreweries open back up to the zublic. Yes, I did get to meet Zoagie!!
