Philly Me Up Times 2

Friday at work the girls and I ordered lunch from a new restaurant. Well, not necessarily a new restaurant, but new for us. Friday is normally the day we decide to order lunch in, somewhat of a celebration to get through the week. We ordered cheesesteak sandwiches from Philly Me Up. (And yes, I am a little in love with their ridiculously cute name.) I told the boy, and he got a little jealous since he's been craving a good cheesesteak lately. So the very next day the boy insisted we head to Philly Me Up to watch the LSU game. (And no, I will not be talking about the LSU. We lost. It wasn't a lot of fun.)

Both times I got the exact same thing, a small shroom cheesesteak, which is a cheesesteak with onions and mushrooms. I replaced the American cheese with mozzarella cheese, mainly because I wouldn't have eaten it with American.
Philly Cheesesteak
The cheesesteak was actually really good. Which was really needed considering I had one two days in a row. I'm not normally a fan of cheesesteaks because I don't like American cheese which is what most cheesesteaks use. But by being able to have mozzarella instead, while not very traditional, made it tasty for me.

I can't see I'm planning on having cheesesteak sandwiches two days in a row anytime again in the near future. But at least I know if I ever want a cheesesteak to philly me up again I know where to go!



  1. Mmmmmmm, I love, love, love philly's! I make them regularly at home and they are soooo good! Have you ever tried a chicken philly? They are good too. I wish we had that place here, something tells me I would eat there all the time. :)

  2. Also try one with provolone cheese! That's definitely my favorite. =)

  3. I think I've seen that restaurant around (or something similar). I've never tried it, I'll to sometime. Your photo of the cheesesteak looks delicious!

  4. Hmmmm. Not gonna lie, that looks pretty darned good!!

  5. That looks super tasty! I'm glad you enjoyed it so much!

  6. I don't like cheese so much but I have to say, that sandwich looks pretty amazing! how silly would it be for me to order a philly cheesesteak... hold the cheese? haha

    (come to think of it, I actually did that at the air show I went to with my dad. my sandwich just had meat, peppers and onions. without the cheese holding it together, it was a bit messy, but it was still tasty! :)
