Talk of the Town, 4th on WIP's Cheesesteak list???

Den Apr 12, 2010 05:57 AM

I've been going through Glen Macnow's picks on the Ultimate Cheesesteak Challenge and went to Talk of the Town on Saturday which is #4 on his list. I don't know what he was thinking but it was weak at best, chewy and the meat had very little flavor. I think his top 3 are solid (John's, Steve's and Chink's) but I have to question a list that doesn't include George's at 9th & Christian.

    How old is that list? Talk of the Town used to be very good and one of my favorite places, but it went downhill a few years ago.

    BTW, on Food Network's "Best Thing I Ever Ate" episode "Best Thing Between Bread', Aaron McCargo gave props to my favorite cheesesteak place, Yellow Submarine in Maple Shade.

      I'm pretty sure it was around September of 2009.

        I had stopped going to ToT long before that. It was my normal spot after hockey games, but the service got really slow and the quality of the sandwiches dropped quite a bit.

          He did Italian Hoagies in 2009. i'm pretty sure he did cheesesteaks in 2008, pizza in 2007, Ribs in 2006 and Cheeseburgers in 2005.
