we are moving to the burbs in a couple days after many many years of city living. we are leaving South Phila (Girard Estates), and here are our final takeout choices:
Nick's Roast Beef - the original and the best, at 20th and Jackson. Beef combos overboard on the outs, with a side of gravy fries
Jamaican Jerk Hut - whole Jerk Chicken with rice and peas, vegetable roti, and 2 chicken patties
Tony Luke's - roast pork sandwiches with sharp provolone and long hots, may they open soon in Washington Twp
Chickie's and Pete's - white pizza with lobster tail, mussels in red, buffalo wings, and hot shrimp in the garlic/pepper broth
Happily, our family, friends and jobs will keep us in the city on a regular basis. If you have a better recommendation for delivery or take-out, let's hear it! Reading Terminal Market is too obvious. close runners-up are Bomb-Bomb for the BBQ chicken and rib combo, and Criniti's lasagna.
