This Weekend in Philadelphia...

We're driving up on a last minute trip to spend the weekend with BF's family in Philadelphia (they're coming from South Carolina) and we're driving from D.C. area...

Anyhow--any quick recs--nothing fancy but MUST TRY places for first time visitors

We are staying in Cherry Hill, NJ (bf couldnt find a nice hotel in the Philadelphia downtown area it seems this weekend on last notice--is there some convention or something going on??)

however, we will be spending most of the day (Saturday and Sunday I think) in downtown Philadelphia or the city limits to see sights etc...

Definitely would like to have:

1. Cheesesteak (Phillies claim to fame in food, right?)

2. One nice meal--nothing over the top fancy and about 50-60 USD range per person

3. Some other places you think are homely favorites unique to Philadelphia's culture and city...

Only thing is--dont eat lamb, prefer Cuban over Mexican if thats a suggestion, love anything home cooked asian but dunno about Philadelphias chinatown or asian cuisines or which ones the city specializes places with small plates too...
