Philadelphia, PA - It was a beautiful September day in Philly with very little traffic courtesy of COVID-19. Every time I pass-by Bubby's Brisket, I stare at the people standing line to get their sandwiches at Bubby's and hope someday I could be that person in line.
Bubby's Brisket Center City
This day was that day. Bubby's may have new owners. There was a very nice young man, I think he was the new owner, working behind the counter.
Bubby's is right on 15th, and all 3 lanes are travel lanes, so there is always traffic, and Bubby's has no parking. Except for the occasional delivery truck that stops and blocks traffic.
Bubby doesn't have a lot of customers standing around space. There is enough room for several soda coolers and a condiment counter.
I asked the man behind the counter how he liked his cheesesteaks. He likes them with just fried onions and ketchup.
So, I ordered a cheesesteak with fried onions and ketchup and took it to where I was parked on 16th Street for a trunk picnic.
No ants, just lanternflies. I would put this cheesesteak in the Popi store category. The meat was a little thicker slice, so you had to chew it and taste it. It was a very standard cheesesteak, and for the price, I am not going to hate it.
