Always one to try an interesting menu item I was intrigued when I saw this West Side sandwich shops menu. It's the common type of eating establishment you'll find around these parts except you can tell they put a little more care into everything. What I mean by that is both the looks and feel of the restaurant itself as well as the menu which is a bit different than many of the other spots.

The name of the place implies Philly Cheesesteaks and they do have those but I was interested in the Philly Cheeseburger Sandwich. As described it's a fresh angus patty that's grilled and then chopped and topped with ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomato, and dill pickle. It's basically a loose meat hoagie and not something you see everywhere. Even if it's pretty damn easy to make one for yourself. I enjoyed this sandwich enough to warrant a return visit would be in-store. They have a sandwich called the Chicago avenue Signature Philly and it's made with said burger meat as well as chopped gyro meat and steak as well. Seems to be some sort of sandwich with Jim Shoe inspirations. Other fun menu items include fresh fried chips on a stick as well as baked potatoes loaded in the same way as their signature sandwiches. For the super decadent they also have deep fried Oreo's.
