Fried chicken and cheesesteak
I've got a craving for both. Can you help clog my arteries by pointing me in the right direction to find good fried chicken and cheesesteak sandwiches (the works with shrooms and sweet peppers) in San Diego? Thanks.
Check out Pop's Jersey Style CheeseSteaks in Pacific Beach, Gaglione Brothers in Point Loma and Philly's Best Cheesesteaks in Oceanside. These are all pretty good in my opinion and I'm from Philly.
There's also a place in San Marcos that apparently does a good cheesesteak but the name escape me.

Philly Franks is in San Marcos. They also keep their Tasty Kakes (and sometimes Candy Cakes) in the freezer, if you like yours frozen. Philly Franks' claim is that they use Amarosa (sp?) rolls... not being a Philly native, I can't comment on how important this is or not.
The Philadelphia Sandwich Company is on Convoy, and their cheesesteaks are decent.

Tried for years to find good fried chicken, Huffman's, Magnolia, etc and have not been too impressed. Might get flamed for this but I'm just as happy with Popeye's compared to local alternatives. On the other hand buttermilk brined Curtis Womack's chicken is truly something special.
