Philadelphia, PA - Walt's Pizza & Grille, Clifton Heights, PA. I ended up in Upper Darby and disrespect to Upper Darby, but I did not want to be in Upper Darby or anywhere I couldn't take a nap.
Walts Pizza Formerly Walts Cheesesteaks
It was a struggle to get my big boy pants on, but I did, and I went to Walt's Pizza & Grille in Clifton Heights.
Walt's has been on my go-to list for a long time, and a friend of mine's wife told me about Walt's very early in the adventure.
She wasn't sure if they were still open, and I just assumed they were closer to the old Bazaar on Baltimore Pike.
I was shocked when I realized the ceramic/plaster Bakery guy with a broken hand was standing in front of Walt's. I drive by him all the time.
The front of Walt's is fancier than your traditional pizza shop, and this place has plenty of parking and seating. Walt even has his own soda, and according to the newspaper article on the wall, Walt's is now owned by Jim S, a long Greek name.
I got Walt's 1939 cheesesteak, which came with wiz, bell peppers, and fried onions. I am really not a wiz guy, and I prefer roasted or sweet peppers to bell peppers.
The wiz was "on the roll," and I liked it there much better than poured/squeezed/ladled on top. The bell peppers didn't take away from the cheesesteak. Nice roll. Maybe Conshohocken bakery.
I did ask, but they have different roll suppliers, and the phones started to ring, so I did not want to take up any more of the counter person's time. She was an accommodating person.
