Philly Cheesesteak Hunt: Rick's
While we spent most of our recent weekend in Philadelphia geeking out on comics and Star Wars, we still had to eat. Since we weren't in the mood for a hike out to Rudy Giuliani's fave spot, we ducked into the Reading Terminal Market for a taste of Rick's.
Like most steak spots, Rick's is a no-nonsense affair. There's a menu, but why consult it? Just order your sandwich "whiz with," slathered with Cheez Whiz and topped with onions. These sandwiches are big--but not so big you can't finish 'em. Just make sure you don't have anything scheduled for after lunch.
On the other hand, if you're on an all-out eating binge, you're in the right spot. Aside from Rick's, the market has a ton of other grub. We'd recommend the Amish baked goods, but anything's pretty much worth a shot.
