The food of one's youth not only nourishes a developing body, it also nutures a nostalgic seed of comfort-food adoration that follows one through life and dimly lit alleys. Today's Groupon serves up $25 worth of Philly-inspired fare and libations at Olde City Grill in Pacific Beach for $10. Lend your cravings the sultry satisfaction of Philly cheesesteaks and fresh East Coast ingredients that will return you to the good ol' days of eating cheesesteaks during a lunch break at the sulfur mine.
Olde City Grill was inspired by the culinary class of Philly. The restaurant offers crispy thin-crust pizza pies and signature Philly cheesesteaks made with American Kobe beef and true-blue Amoroso rolls flown in from Philly itself. Culture your taste buds with Olde City's menu of build-your-own cheesesteaks with beef or chicken ($8.99 for a foot-long); Pesto's Revenge pizza pies with artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and garlic ($20.99); and handmade Italian ices flavored by the flavors of mango, coconut, orange cream, Granny Smith apple, and more ($9 for a quart to go).
Philadelphia has its own food to thank for keeping it sustained for so many years and through so many musket battles. Quit bugging your friend Phillip from Philadelphia to make you delicious beef sandwiches and take matters into a shop known for making tasty, authentic Philly cheesesteaks.
Happy Hour online magazine features the Pacific Beach hotspot Olde City Grill:
- Olde City Grill is turning heads with their authentic Philly-style food, and putting the competition to shame with their 24” pizza pies. That’s not the only thing on their menu to indulge in; try their Philly Cheesesteaks on authentic Amoroso rolls flown in three times a week stuffed with thick American Kobe Beef and all the toppings necessary. – Tracey Quayle
- Now, I should preface this by saying that I have never been to Philadelphia, I have never tasted the real deal, in the real location, but I know a good cheesesteak when I taste one. This one was a no brainer, full tilt, hell yes of a sandwhich!! [sic] – Kev, Urbanspoon
- Patio is also great for people watching right on Garnet and they also serve beers. – mbsdcs, Citysearch
- If you don't like this place, you don't like puppy dogs, sunshine, world peace or good times. Oh, the food and beer selection are pretty great too. – Bill B., Yelp
