Last weekend we grabbed sandwiches from Paesano’s on Girard. I think Paesano’s is better than Jim’s, Pat and Geno’s Steaks. There is more flavor, more spice and you can tell that meat has been marinated for a long time. If you want a really killer sandwich in Philly I would have to say the HipsterHenry.com crew votes for Paesano’s.
The spot might be tiny but they are big on Philly personality. Instead of making you feel nervous like you have to get your whole order out in 3 seconds, like the other places, they ask everyone that all came in at once to shout their order out at the same time to test their skills. It is just a different vibe. We brought the stroller in only b/c it was cold out but the spot really does not have enough room for one. There are a bunch of bar stools if you want to sit at the counter but you can forget about highchairs in this spot. Take it home if you have wee ones.
