I am not from the city I live outside just Northeast a couple miles.Who do you prefer, Pat's or Geno's? Jim's, maybe?
BTW, do you know the origin of 'hoagie'?
I was born and raised in Philly, now live across the big river a few milesI am not from the city I live outside just Northeast a couple miles.
A little history: In the 'olden' days, they were originally called 'hoggies' for hog island, but it evolved to 'hoagies'. Also, back in the late '40s, the family would take a ride to Pat's for a steak sandwich. There wasn't a piece of cheese to be found anywhere. It was added much later (mid-'50s).Yes in regards to the HOAGIE it started at hog island, ship builders would take sandwiches to work and it started from Hog island ship builders who named it a hoagie.
Try Geno's.No Pats, Geno's or Jim's but I would like to try one. I know where they are.
