If you didn’t win the Art of Food tickets, I’m sorry– but I do have a chance for you to win $20 to my favorite local guilty-pleasure chain.

Penn Station is not an “authentic” cheesesteak — they use real provolone and add banana peppers, not wiz and weird pressed steak like they do in Philly — but I absolutely love it.  My choice of hair stylist may or may not be related to the fact that they are next door to a Penn Station (Alicia, just kidding). I remember the first time I went (coincidentally with said hair stylist) how much I loved the spicy, savory, utterly fattening combination.

I still do, obviously. Their fries are some of the best quick service fries in town– cooked in peanut oil, fresh to order.  Their bread is good, everything’s fresh– I go there as often as my conscience lets me (which is about 3x a year).

This month’s special is the Cheesesteak, their classic sandwich.  I tend to get mine with provolone, mayo, onions, mustard and peppers.  Sometimes, I’ll skip the meat and do a grilled vegetarian — everything above, no steak.  I’m a fan of the chicken teriyaki, too.  The Better Half likes the reuben.

What’s your favorite Penn Station sandwich?  Post in the comments and enter the giveaway to win a $20 gift certificate — that’s good for several sandwiches.

    The Philly Cheesesteak is definitely my favorite – but a close second is the chicken parmesan!

    Sometimes steak, sometimes chicken, always philly!

    I like the artichoke and mushroom sub…with chicken added on for more oomph!

    The chicken teriyaki is so salty and delicious!

    Ugh, way to enable my PS addiction. The artichoke/mushroom is my jam.

    They serve sandwiches other than the cheesesteak?

    I love the chicken teriyaki.

  14. I go for the classic myself. If only they served Coke…

  15. Monica Kirkham says:

    Hands down: Reuben is the best!

    Penn Station is the one Cincinnati food I really crave since I moved to AZ. I can buy canned Skyline on Amazon and I carried four rolls of goetta frozen in my luggage when I flew home after xmas (really). But oh man I miss the deliciousness of PS. We have a Geno’s (the REAL Philly) out here but I refuse to eat that garbage.

    Ha. I got hit up to run this very same Penn Station promotion/contest on my blog by Jenny over at Powers Agency. I don’t do contests. Enjoy your $20 gift card. 🙂

    BTW you can’t beat the cheesesteak. And the missus is a fan of the teriyaki too.
