Philadelphia, PA - It had been a long couple of days, and I was really looking forward to just getting home. Then again, I am on this Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure. I was Williamstown NJ and was heading across the Rowan College campus and right past the Bonesaw Brewing Co.
Rowan's Cheesesteak Stop
College towns are so much nicer to visit when the college students aren't around, just like Cheesesteaks go very well with Brewery brews. So I stopped at the first place I saw on Route 322, Ciconte's I on Rowan's campus to get a cheesesteak and glad I did.
Ciconte's is very well decorated with a big menu for a college campus pizza shop, along with lots of pizza specials that concerned me. They had charming decor, including a couch and comfy chairs, a big four-fold menu, and the steak sandwich with six steaks, three were cheesesteaks, and three were chicken cheesesteaks.
Luckily for me, they were not busy, and I was able to non-creepily chat with the young ladies behind the counter. The signature sandwiches on the menu caught my eye, they had a Pork Italiano. So, I asked the young lady if I could make Cheesesteak Italiano?
Much to my delight, she said, Yes! So, I ordered my Cheesesteak Italiano and took it to Bonesaw Brewing Co. The Cheesesteak Italiano came with Jersey Long Hots, Broccoli Rabe and Smoked Mozzarella on a rustic roll. If you love Jersey Long Hots and Broccoli Rabe, you will love this cheesesteak.
The Long Hots dominated this cheesesteak, and much to my surprise, they did not tear up my stomach. The broccoli rabe was delicious but maybe a little string in spots. The meat was good, but maybe a little overpowered by the long hots. The smoked mozzarella got lost in everything else.
However, the rustic roll may have been the perfect long-roll for this cheesesteak. Taking this cheesesteak Italiano to Bonesaw Brewing Co and getting a 12 oz Queen Sicle was pure genius. The early returns on Bonesaw Brewing Co are very good.
