Any great + fast dinner options driving N out of PHL?
We're flying in 8p range, driving home (twds Jersey Tpk northbound) w/ two kids.
Part of me wants to try Osteria -- somewhat off route, I know -- but I assume it's chronically crowded Fri night (?). Kids could normally handle but after a half-day of travel a possibly/probably risky scheme.
So as a more likely fallback option -- is there a great cheesesteak or other fastish food on our route? Thanks for any help.
If you're going from the airport to the NJ turnpike, pretty much the entire city is 'off route'. I'd stop by Tony Luke's for a roast pork sandwich, it's right near exit 19 off I-95, so you can take the highway from the airport. When you're done, the entrance to the Walt Whitman bridge is right there.
i would try bistro juliana on cumberland off of aramingo. it can get busy sometimes and there really isn't a place to wait, but the food is very good (same owners as raddicchio, not as good, but cheaper and definitely satisfying) and children shouldn't be a problem. it is a byo so you know...
