“Restaurants that serve chili should have bathrooms.”
– Jose, January 25, 2009
The Wedge Inn reminds me of a place where you’d see Tony Soprano. Not that you’d get whacked or anything — I just could imagine him eating a sandwich there.
I heard about Wedge Inn from my friend Jose, who happened upon it on his way home from physical therapy. He told me about their unique cheesesteak… with chili. (If you ordered this in Philly would the chili count as an extra “wit”?)
A better name would be “The Maalox.” It’s like they took every food that causes indigestion — sliced steak, Cheez Whiz, peppers, onions, chili — and put it on a roll. Mighty tasty, if a little skimpy on the steak. A lot more meat could have been packed in there.
(It’s occurred to me that whenever Jose and I grab a bite we eat the most astoundingly unhealthy foods. We’ve done hot oil and sausage pizza, chili, hot dogs, cheesesteaks… One more meal together and we receive a complimentary nitroglycerin tablet.)
And Jose does make an astute observation: Wedge Inn serves all sorts of fried, greasy food, yet they don’t have a bathroom on the premises. I feel like you should know these things.
