In real life, T.O. can not afford: the sandwich, the deck chair, the bimbo to his left, or the swim trunks he's wearing.  Broke ass is broke ass.

I think it's a fairly entertaining commercial, and gets the general Eagles fan attitude right.  They're biatch and complain about the team all day long to anyone who'll listen, but turn on any outsider like a pack of rabid dogs in an instant for saying the same things, and woe be unto you if you become a member of the inner circle and do something that's perceived as a betrayal, even if half the fans were calling for you to be run out of town on a rail the week before.

I don't know if there's another fan base out there that can be as simultaneously die-heard devoted and jerk-ass critical of their team.

As for cheesesteaks, half-ass interpretations from far flung areas of the country are nothing new.  The big mystery is how red and green bell peppers became synonymous with cheesesteaks everywhere but Philly.

That looks pretty damn tasty. To bad there's no Hardees/Carl's Jr, here.

We here in Philadelphia know what's real, whether in football or sandwiches. And that thing you're taking a bite out of is definitely not real.

This from a city whose famed dish comes with Cheez Whiz on it?

lived in Philly for a year. Never got the appeal of that bland-ass abomination they all so adored.

Shame on you, Subby!  There are probably some kids out there reading this that still believe T.O. is real.

Damn it all... I'll have to track down a Hardees.

I'm PISSED that some jackhole executive VP at Rallys/Checkers decided to discontinue their awesome Philly Cheesesteak Burger in favor of a lame-ass "sub" - WTF? I don't go to Rallys for a damn Cheesesteak sub - I went there for their awesomely cheap, yet tasty burgers. The Philly Cheesesteak burger, the Prime Rib Burger... the Fry Lover's burger.. if I want a sub, I can go to one of a few dozen sub shops within 10 miles of me, rather than drive 15 for Rallys. Bring back the Philly Cheesesteak BURGER you numbnuts.

Hardees are even fewer and farther between these days in my area than Rallys/Checkers are, but I love a burger topped with meat other than bacon (though adding bacon is good, too)

/Why yes, I am due for my annual coronary stent surgery, why do you ask?

Steak, onions, and cheese.  It's not fancy, but done right it's a tasty combination.  If you want to get a bit fancier mushrooms, pizza sauce, and hot peppers are all acceptable additions (diced red and green bell peppers are decidedly not acceptable).

I'll order a excellently marbled steak garnished with crumbles of fine goat cheese when I'm out in a good restaurant but if I'm chowing down on shreds of tough flank or skirt steak on a street corner, I prefer my steak roll smeared with Whiz before the steak and onions are applied.

Only a heathen would use thin squares of modified cheese food type product.

They made me want to buy something.

Be glad, they've come to TX in the last few years and they are the worst drive throughs wherever they are.

I read a few weeks ago that a franchisee plans on opening a couple in NJ and NY...man I wish they would, and then spread to Philly (or at least see Roy Rogers make a comeback to the area). I always stop at a Hardee's the rare occasion I travel through Delaware, and it's real 'good' for fast food.
So until then...I either have to go to DE or head out to Harrisburg for my Hardee's fix.

The Hardee's side of the operation has their HQ here in St. Louis. So we basically have a Hardee's on every block around here. They're my go-to place for fast food because:

A. It's the closest one to the house.
B. It's actually not too bad for fast food (especially compared to McDonald's or BK).

Hardees has the best breakfast of any fast food place.  I'm not big fan of their burgers just because if I'm going to eat a burger that thick, I want it to be from a place that will cook it medium rare.  A 1/2 lbs well done burger doesn't do it for me.

I'd love for White Castle or Krystal to open up a place near me though.

Not so csb
Philly native.
For the heck of it I ordered the "Philly cheesesteak" in a café in the south. Got a very nice roast beef sandwich. I asked the manager about it and he said 'No one here knows the difference but since you do it's on us."

O.k., thanks, I guess, but how hard would it have been to, you know, make a cheese steak?

For something so simple, people seem to find an amazing variety of ways to screw it up. And no, I WILL NOT eat the abortion from Hardeee's.

Browns fans' criticism is wholly valid, rather than jerk-ass.

Only a farking tourist orders it with Cheez Wiz. That all started with Pat's and Geno's, which are tourist traps. Real neighborhood Philly kids don't ever order with Wiz and look down on those who do, sign your a douchebag rich kid from the burbs or from North Jersey. Go to Dallesandros in Roxborough, Jim's on South Street, or Chink's steaks in the Northeast (I know they changed their name) and get a cheesesteak, provolone, fried onions. I'll put that up against any sandwich in the country.
 
2013-12-26 01:24:34 AM  
Another rehashing of the tired Philly fan stereotype. Other fan bases do the exact same or worse stuff and never get bashed as badly on the national level. Texans fans cheer when Schaub gets hurt, Chiefs fans cheer when Cassel got hurt, Jets fans cheer when Pennington got hurt, and violence at stadiums between fans happens everywhere. And we don't riot like others have after big games, win or lose, including the Phillies WS title.

I've had Carl's Junior on the west coast and thought they made pretty awesome fast food burgers. Would never ever eat there again.

FTA: "We believe in being nice to people"

Kinda like how Eagles and Flyers fans have been known to beat people senseless for wearing the wrong jersey/sweater... I guess there's Minnesota Nice and Philly Nice.

Going to eat that burger today just for Mr. Tannenwald.

Maybe they didnt have a dead cat, ten-time-reheated simulated imitation dairy sludge, and three-day old sauteed onions in the kitchen.

Actually all of this, except the free part.

I had a very similar experience a few times.

I'll take mine with white american, onions, mushrooms and a good spicy smear of cherry pepper spread. Hmm it's lunchtime.

TO was loved, then hated. Mostly because he hired Drew Rosenhaus, wanted out of his contract halfway through, criticized McNabb, management and the fans and started wearing Dallas jerseys around town. So he got suspended, then fired.

The very definition of locker room cancer.
 
2013-12-26 01:18:43 PM  
I tried the Carl's Jr. cheesesteak burger. I got the $6 cheesesteak thick-burger (or whatever they call it), and hade 'em make it a double. Cost around $8 or $9, but it was pretty good. However, there's a place here in Vegas called Sammy's LA Style Pastrami that I recommend if you want a burger topped with deli meats. I had a double pastrami-burger with provolone and topped with a fried egg. Came out to around $11 I think, but I didn't need fries with it.
 
2013-12-26 01:22:18 PM  
Also, If you're in Vegas, and want a nice cheesesteak or grinder, try Pop's at Decatur & Alta. I don't know how they stack up against what's available in Philly, but they taste good to me...
 
2013-12-26 02:56:43 PM  
I laughed at the kid part.
 
2013-12-26 05:15:34 PM  
But here in Philadelphia, T.O., we're better than petty sniping from a pool deck chair. We believe in being nice to people, even people who make ridiculous spectacles of themselves and embarrass their football teams and their fans. Because it's the holiday season, and it's just the right way to be.


Aren't these the same people that threw snowballs at Santa?...batteries at J.D. Drew? Yeah...y'all are classy.

"We here in Philadelphia know what's real, whether in football or sandwiches."

That's the joke. right?

I love how Philerdelphians defend the Cheez Whiz - Steakum reputation by naming 20 other "restaurants" who serve the same thing and where "real" Philerdelphians go for cheese and beef sandwiches.

Coached by a New Englander via Oregon, stocked with players from the South and West.  New York's retarded little brother knows about as much about football  as I know about bioengineering.

How're Temple, Villanova, Penn State, and Pitt doing, by the way?

Anyway, Philly cheesesteaks are sewage.  Maybe Hardees can fix them.

The fan base used to chant "Watermelon, watermelon, chicken wing, c'mon Randall, do your thing" whenever the Eagles got a stop on 3rd down.  The reputation for trashiness is well-deserved.
