Godzilla sequels and people named John have taught us that although there may be many versions of something, only a few are memorable. Such is the case with the cheesesteak. Sink your chompers into a rendition you won't soon forget with today's deal: for $5, you get $10 toward cheesesteaks and other mythical sandwiches and drinks at Steaks on South. Don one of your winter coats, no matter what the season, and head to South Street to trade your freshly minted Groupon for a hot-off-the press comestible.
The made-to-order sandwiches of Steaks on South (SOS) leave a favorable impression on the palates of even lifelong cheesesteakers. SOS banks on the quality of its food itself instead of on the cheap touristy aura surrounding the sandwich, meaning a request to hold the Wiz or onions won't result in an ostentatious public shaming. Throats will not be stepped on by the friendly staff, only fed a heaping pile of ingredients in a mouth-warming bun.
The classic cheesesteak ($7.50) is reliably topped with fried onions and choice of cheese (Cheez Wiz, American, sharp or regular provolone, mozzarella, or swiss). Order it plain or hoagie style (with lettuce, tomato, and raw onion). If chicken's the name of your game, SOS has a long-winded run-on sentence of options, including chicken cheesesteak ($7.35), hoagie, pizza chicken, barbecue chicken, and buffalo chicken steak ($7.80) (with spicy sauce and bleu cheese). Other specialty sandwiches include the beloved SOS garlic, studded roast pork with broccoli rabe ($7.35), or the SOS sausage sandwich ($7.60). The menu also offers some veggie options to appease herbivores, such as the popular grilled veggie steak (with roasted peppers and broccoli rabe) ($6.75). Add a few fried fries and wash it all down with an icy soda or milky shake.
Though not the most romantic of dinners, a cheesesteak date is a great way to see if that boy who only talks to you via texts is a true Philadelphian and therefore true love. Head in for a midday meal to shake up the monotony of your usual lunch-break jazzercise routine.
