Philadelphia, PA - Dash In, Newark, DE. And its Ringo Starr's Birthday!! I wonder who makes more money in a year; Ringo Starr or John Lennon's estate? Or George Harrison's estate? Poor Ringo.

I was at a red light on my way to Newark Delaware with a rider considering being in an Octopus's Garden under the Sea.
I looked to my right and saw a sign in front of the Shell gas station, 'craving steak?' I thought to myself, 'I am craving steak.' The sign was promoting Shell's Food Market's, Dash In's Chesapeake Steak, and Cheddar sandwich.
Newark is near Maryland, so I imagined a Maryland crab cake in a cheesesteak (which I like, YouTube search, Philadelphia Cheesesteak adventure at Meding & Son seafood). Still, I thought buying crab cakes at a gas station may not be a great idea.
I was starving, and according to Instagram, my Quick Stop, the article is doing 80% better than my other ones. Hence, getting a "Dash In" Chesapeake Steak & Cheddar sounded like another great story idea.
So, I dropped off my rider and headed back to Dash In. The young woman that greeted me from behind the counter was a joy, was relatively new to the store, but everything was bright and clean.
I am still getting used to this Kiosk ordering. Luckily, the Chesapeake Steak & Cheddar was highlighted. So, with one click, I was able to purchase the Chesapeake Steak and Cheddar Cheesesteak Sandwich.
The Chesapeake Steak & Cheddar
I wish I took a picture of the screen so I would know the ingredients. The Chesapeake in the sandwich is Old Bay seasoning and not crab meat, still not sure if I am happy or sad that it was not real crab meat.
Although the sandwich was delicious. The onions appeared to be sauteed and not fried, which I like. However, the roll dominated the sandwich a touch.
I also ordered a 40 oz soda for $1.49, and the wonderful lady behind the counter told me I could 'make it a meal.' Which comes with either potato wedges or tater tots.
The sandwich its self did not score well as a cheesesteak but top honors for customer service, ease of use, cleanliness, and value.
