Philadelphia, PA - I recently visited my younger daughter in Baltimore, and we wound up taking a walk around the Locust Point and Fort McHenry area. I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the area was as well as discovering it’s the home to Under Armour’s World Headquarters, which has a lovely boardwalk.
City Limits Sports Bar Baltimore Maryland
Since Fort McHenry was closed at the time, due to COVID-19, we stopped into City Limits Sports Bar mostly because the drink specials looked very good, and we were hungry.
I noticed they had a Jersey Cheesesteak Hoagie on the menu. There was also a park across the street where we could eat, so I broke my own personal rule that I must eat local cuisine and went for the Jersey Cheesesteak Hoagie. In my defense, my daughter got the crab dip.
We were not allowed inside due to COVID-19, but it looked nice, and the staff was pleasant, the menu sounded good, and the drinks were tasty.
The Jersey Cheesesteak Hoagie with Fries was just $10 and was an excellent effort from our Baltimore friends.
The roll was standard, with the perfect amount of chopped sirloin, however, a little dry. It came with provolone cheese and needed more of it, there were huge mushrooms, but the tomatoes on the Jersey Cheesesteak was ironically the weak link.
For the $10 price point, it was a “pretty darn” good bar cheesesteak. My daughter’s crab dip was delicious, and I put a couple of spoonfuls of crab dip on my Cheesesteak. Everything my Cheesesteak was lacking the crab dip added and, it gave my Cheesesteak that local Baltimore experience I was looking for. An excellent stop, and I will argue that I did not break my personal rule and ate the local cuisine.
