This is why Philly is so great. Because even though Gritty still scares us, we now love him and want to pay homage why doing all things Gritty. And what says that more than a cheesesteak!
There are actually TWO places where you can get Gritty inspired cheesesteaks.
1. Joe’s Steaks & Soda Shop has created the "Gettin' Gritty Wit It." The cheesesteak is topped with prime steak meat, whiz, French fries and Cheetos. Joe’s Steaks will start serving the cheesesteak on Tuesday, Oct. 9, in celebration of the Flyers’ season home opener.
"Gettin' Gritty Wit It" will be available during every game, home or away, for $9.25. Find it at both Joe's Steaks locations: 6030 Torresdale Ave. and 1 W. Girard Ave.
2. Mike's BBQ in South Philly - A Brisket Cheesesteak, w/ Cooper Sharp Whiz, Fried Onions, Lettuce, Tomato, Special Sauce, Potato Sticks, Long Roll!
