Philadelphia's Best Cheesesteak: Campo's



Campo's on Market in Old City made the top of my list for the best cheesesteak I ate in Philadelphia. Granted, I didn't make it to South Philly or Tony Luke's. The Campo family opened a little corner grocery in 1947. The next generation took over in 1975. There is still a mom and pop homey feel.

The steak is chopped, and the sandwiches come with onions and peppers. The bread is from Sarcone's Bakery. It was definitely the best cheesesteak I ate in Philly and the only place I returned to more than once.







Little peppers stuffed with prosciutto and cheese were addictive.





Besides cheesesteaks, they had a stunning menu. Check this one out:

THE STOCKYARD - $8.50
chicken, steak, pepperoni, bacon, fried onions, marscarpone cheese


I took home the Mamma Mia for lunch the next day. God, I wish I had this sandwich right now.

Mamma Mia - $8.00
Prosciutto, sopressata, old-fashioned capocolla, sharp provolone, hot & sweet roasted peppers








This is the best hoagie and cheesesteak place in Philly, and I will stand behind that! Especially if some of those meaty Italian cooks are standing behind me.

Philly definitely has some amazing food, and cheese steak is only one dish among many that make it a food town. The sandwich you had looks a hell of a lot better than Geno's or Pat's...

The Company that offers Forklift Rental should be a trusted one that has offered quality service for a couple of years already. Warehouse shelving has evolved over the years. At one point and time all warehouse shelving was constructed of wood and was generally "one size fits all". However, over the past decade warehouse shelving has drastically changed. One of the most significant changes is in the types of material that this type of shelving is constructed from. Wood shelving was known to crack easy, to warp, and to rot over time. Therefore, modern day warehouse shelving is constructed of strong materials that are built to last and are built to hold the weight of even the heaviest storage boxes or bins. An age requirements states all people need to be at the very least 18 years old before being able to do the forklift training in Melbourne. It's not always as black and white as this, though. 14.
