Okay, I write this with a heavy heart, because I am West Philly born and raised in the 60s and 70s Jim's Steaks loyalist, and will always go to 62nd street for my cheesesteaks when I am back in town from North Jersey. And since a Snapple bottle slammed off my car hood from out of nowhere one recent dark night, my visits there will only be in the broad daylight hours from now on.

But I'm afraid they may have lost me to Ricci's for hoagies. My baby brother, who stayed in Philly after school, knows every sandwich joint from the Northeast to Chester, or heck, even down into Delaware for that matter. He took us by Ricci's in late May, and I think I'm in love!

Back in my day, that far south on 11th street, or on any street down that way would get a West Philly brother's head cracked open, but thank goodness for White flight, oh, I mean social progress. The clientele during our recent visit was as diverse as the menu, and service was fast! - How fast? - as fast as we used to run from the Spectrum to the subway station after a Sixers game in the 70s. The meat was sliced thin like I like it, and piled high before your eyes with the fixings you want on rolls that are good enough to eat solo. These boys know what they are doing. The constant traffic on this weekday lunch hour was a testament to years of local loyalty. But loyalty only takes you so far. You have to continue to deliver on quality to remain a local favorite. Any Philly veteran sandwich consumer is willing to keep an open mind and sample other venues to stay abreast of the culinary landscape. But don't you dare call your self an authority on Philly grub if you haven't been to Riccis. GO EAGLES!
