It’s hard to find, it’s not much on the inside, and there’s a good chance you’ll trip up the front step like we did, but the little shack on the side of the road known as Calozzi’s Cheesesteaks will take care of any craving you might have to visit Philadelphia. Their cheesesteaks are made with pencil-shaving-thin slices of beef piled so high that you’ll have to dust some off in order to fit the sub in your mouth, and while the meat can be on the dry side, the flavor is great. Always add fried onions, and get the cheese whiz as long as you’re wearing clothes you’d normally paint in.
