Philadelphia has contributed countless historical artifacts to the American landscape, such as cheesesteaks, Benjamin Franklin's face, and Bel Air's freshest prince. Dine on the City of Brotherly Love's best export with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of sandwiches and more at Kipps Cheesesteak. Specializing in both traditional and innovative twists on philly cheesesteaks, Kipps makes mouthwatering hoagies using freshly baked bread and quality grade-A rib-eye steak. Feast on the Original Philly, a quarter-pound of juicy rib eye, topped with caramelized onions, and Cheez Whiz or provolone ($6.49). Experiment like an antsy college freshman with one of Kipps's signature cheesesteaks, such as the Hot Chick, with thinly sliced chicken marinated in hot sauce, melted provolone, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and ranch dressing ($6.99), or the Nacho Philly, a mound of rib eye or chicken nestled beneath a layer of nacho cheese, onions, and jalapeños ($6.99). A slice of homemade brownie-chunk cheesecake ends a meal that so graciously educates on the miraculous versatility of cheese ($2.75).
Ninety percent of Urbanspooners like Kipps Cheesesteak:
When Kipps Cheesesteak first opened in June 2010, owner Kipp wasn't sure if he'd be able to sell the 36 rolls he bought for the day. He shouldn't have worried—he was completely sold out by 11:45 a.m.
It seems that customers couldn't get enough of the cheesesteaks, which were served in classic fashion—rib eye topped with caramelized onions and slathered in Cheez Whiz or provolone—or jazzed up with green chilies, barbecue sauce, or hot sauce. The eatery is still going strong, and in addition to cheesesteaks, serves burgers, hot dogs, creative salads, and housemade cheesecakes.
The signature hot sandwiches and 23 types of frosty beers perch atop Kipps's retro-style bar, which is equipped with several wide-screen TVs broadcasting sports games and only the least-obnoxious car-insurance commercials.
