Philadelphia, PA -The Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure had four cheesesteaks while heading down the shore. Oldest daughter Jordan hosted the adventure, and Amigo Dan and his Posse. The top vote-getter got the least amount of fanfare.
Cheesesteak Road-Trip to The Jersey Shore
The favorite of the night was a late entry. What could/should have been the best cheesesteak was the least liked. The local favorite got a decisive vote from, you guessed it, the local. I'm starting with Gaiss Market. In this video, you get to meet Amigo Dan's Posse.
1215 Bayshore Rd, Villas, NJ. Scored 85/100. - Different cheesesteak #987 in the last four years. Guest eaters oldest daughter Jordan hosting Amigo Dan and his Posse. We are all fans of Gaiss Market but not this particular cheesesteak sans our host. It was a traditional cheesesteak. The roll didn't help this cheesesteak. It alligatored and was bready. The meat was okay. It needed more cheese and a better mix of cheese. This video has a lot of 'get to know the posse' banter. Highlighting the cheesesteak ends about halfway thru the video. https://youtu.be/k9prxAju-YE
Gennaro's Italian Grille & Pizzeria
126 Philadelphia Ave, Egg Harbor City, NJ. Scored 88/100. - Different cheesesteak #986 in the last four years. Guest eaters oldest daughter Jordan hosting Amigo Dan and his Posse. This was the surprise favorite of Amigo Dan's Posse. I would have liked more meat, but it was $8.50. When I unwrapped it, it didn't look like much. I saw a lot of rolls. The meat did have a lot of flavors. A sturdy roll and a lot of flavors made Posse's my favorite. https://youtu.be/21HmlbPlvvU
Two Black Dogs Café and Take Out
421 NJ-47 S, Green Creek, NJ. Scored 90/100.- Different cheesesteak #988 in the last four years. Guest eaters oldest daughter Jordan hosting Amigo Dan and his Posse. This was the highest-scoring cheesesteak on a night of 4 cheesesteaks. This cheesesteak was a few cheese slices away from being a top dog. The roll may need an upgrade or maybe a little toasting. The meat was excellent. I am a big fan of thicker slices and less chopping of quality meat. The fried onions and mushrooms were big and added a big flavor. Watching the video, I was shocked at how close this cheesesteak is to greatness and how little the Posse fussed over it. https://youtu.be/1xwRqFq_-S8
417 12th St, Hammonton, NJ. Scored 87/100. - Different cheesesteak #985 in the last four years. Guest eaters oldest daughter Jordan hosting Amigo Dan and his Posse. This was cheesesteak number four of four on a night of cheesesteak tasting. I saved it for last because I thought it would be the best. The Posse is pretty rough on this cheesesteak. I believe this cheesesteak by itself and eaten in a reasonable amount of time after purchase will be delicious.We got the Tailgater and the famous cheesesteak. The meat on each was excellent. While waiting for my cheesesteaks, I talked to a man who had stopped at Bagliani's on his way to the shore from Philly. He stopped because he had heard great things about Bagliani's. He seemed very happy with the meat he was tasting/buying and the prices. https://youtu.be/8PpMy3xatF0
