The Original Thunderbird (Broomall) - Cheesesteak

Appears a 12" roll cut in half with thinly sliced steak with melted cheese and fried onions mixed in. - 3.5

The roll is ok. I'm pretty sure this is an Amoroso's roll. Not the best option out there, but not the worst either. - 3

The meat is sirlion. This meat is very fresh and slightly seasoned. The steak is juicy and tender and has a real nice flavor. - 4

The cheese is melted american and blended nicely throughout of the whole sandwich. I wish more people used this method. - 4.5

Overall, I enjoyed this sandwich. One of the best cheesesteaks in delaware county, that I've sampled. A nice family business, with a really friendly staff. If you're driving down the blue route and jonesing for a nice cheesesteak, give these guys a try! - 4

Total Score: 3.8/5

PJ Whelihan's (Blue Bell) - Hot Wings

The texture is a typical fairly crisp wing. These wings have a lot of tender, juicy meat on the bone, but they are a tad dry. - 3.5

The sauce is pretty good.  A decent amount of heat after eating a few of these. - 3.5

The flavor is alright, I guess. Pretty middle of the road. The chicken was good, but the outside flavor, I wasn't digging that much. - 2.5

Edibility is ok. The sauce wasn't sticking too good to the wings. I finished the basket, but I didn't feel like I wanted anymore. - 3

Overall, these wings are OK. There is plenty of meat on these wings, but there is a slight off flavor. Maybe, I caught them on a bad night? - 3

Total Score: 3.1/5

At least PJ Whelihan's in Blue Bell has a nice, big selection of craft brews to choose from. Around 30 rotating drafts. This stop, I went for a Bear Republic Mach 10, pictured below.
