    He is 100% correct IMHO.

    John's Roast Pork and Angelo's in South Philly are my top 2.

    Like some have said. Insanely overpriced.

    Crab fries are basically fries with old bay. Nothing terribly special but they are good

    I ended up skipping them for a cheesesteak because it was more filling. I ended up with a coat sleeve full of chopped onion that I kept shaking out all game. I love onion but man that was like five pounds of it, pouring everywhere with each bite!

    If you skip the cheese sauce you are getting robbed of the experience

    Crab fries are the most overrated thing ever, and made the whole half of the stadium concourse stink like a boat.

    He's right though? They're fine. Just fine. No more, no less.

    Would kill for some fresh-cut boardwalk fries dressed in apple cider vinegar instead.

    I was going to reason with you, but then you doubled down with a boardwalk fries take. The cheese sauce dunks all over boardwalk fries.

    I feel like John’s has a great cheesesteak but is a little overrated...not a fan of the string onions and had too much black pepper a few times I had it.

    For me Steve’s is the best when it’s on point. Joe’s would be a tie or close second and is more consistent than Steve’s. Then Cafe Carmella is a recent cheesesteak I tried that rounds out my top 3 (sarcones roll, cooper sharp, quality meat). John’s would be a close #4 and I need to try Angelos.

    It’s splitting hairs when you get into the top cheesesteaks but that’s my current feelings on the best cheesesteaks in Philly.

    When I lived in DC a friend of mine used to rave about Steve's but I never tried it. Last time I was in Philly a couple years ago I finally tried it (the one somewhere in NE Philly) and it was excellent. As good as any cheesesteak I ever tried. I got a hoagie to take home with me and that was excellent too.

    Coming up tomorrow, can fans watch warmups in their non-ticketed seats down by the glass?

    Almost all of the first five to seven rows are covered by tarps.

    Last I checked, the economy lot was closed due to COVID reducing the amount of customers. So I’d suggest taking a cab/Uber instead of parking at the airport.

    Apple cider vinegar is for 'Que. Malt vinegar is what is put on fries.

    That's if you are getting fish and chips. If you're on the boardwalk in Rehobeth, it's ACV for the win.
