Tat's Delicatessen

Let’s say you were in a terrible mood somewhere on the East Coast. You might end up eating a pastrami sandwich, or a Philly cheesesteak, or literally anything covered in buffalo sauce. Head to Tat’s instead—it takes less time to get there. This is a dive with subs, wings, fries, and a lot of Pennsylvania-based sports team flags on the walls. Go for a cheesesteak with hot peppers or the Tatstrami sandwich, loaded with pastrami, creamy coleslaw, melted swiss cheese, and russian dressing on a hoagie roll.

It's named after the deli for a reason. Tat's best creation is stacked with pastrami, gooey swiss, coleslaw, and Russian dressing on a sturdy roll. The most important thing to remember is to order this as-is—while it may be tempting to get this thing "Tat's way" (which includes grilled onions and peppers), the pickled and sweet flavors totally overwhelm the otherwise magnificent simplicity of the sandwich.

If you're in the mood for a cheesesteak, this one will satisfy that craving, with peppery beef shavings and whiz the color of Big Bird. And while "Tat's way" is not advised with the Tatstrami, we can endorse it here, which comes in the form of added provolone, white american, grilled onions, and sweet peppers.

Old Bay Fries

Shame on you if you don't tack on a basket of scalding hot battered fries. Tossed in celery-salty Old Bay, it's a necessary buddy for your sandwiches. Especially with a side of ranch.
