NATIONAL CHEESESTEAK DAY
National Cheesesteak Day on March 24th not only celebrates a fantastic sandwich but it recognizes one of this nation’s greater debates; Who created this deliciousness?
It’s like March Madness for cheesesteak. Pat’s and Geno’s square off at 10 AM followed by Chubby’s and Dalessandro’s at 11 AM. Then Jim’s and Tony Luke’s at Noon. Basketball fans know how brackets go. Someone is gonna get a by.
However, the credit is given to a hot dog vendor from the 1930s, Pat Olivieri. According to Philadelphia’s tourism site, Pat’s King of Steaks sits on its original location and is still going strong. This writer has had a cheesesteak from there and would in a heartbeat go back.
The important thing is this fabulous, juicy sandwich on a hoagie roll. If you’ve never had one, you can really only get an authentic one in Philly. Other places try, so go where you can, but someday, Philadephia is the real deal.
The roll is filled with chipped steak, and you can order it with or without cheese and onions.
HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalCheesesteakDay
Invite your friends and head over to your favorite cheesesteak restaurant. Get it with cheese (it’s cheesesteak day, not steak day) and add the onions, too. Use #NationalCheesesteakDay to share on social media.
