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

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.

  1. 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 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.
