I’m in Exton, PA about 40 min from Philly for training for two weeks. Just wanted to say besides cheesesteaks the food up here sucks.

Ville de Roma south of city center. Cash only old school Italian joint. Bar on one side, restaurant on the other. Worth a trip. Nothing touches dalessandro’s for cheesesteaks. Onions and whiz with hot peppers. Didn’t think I would be a fan of the whiz but it works.

Info is from 1974, find some German food places. Went to Germantown, north of downtown. I had a guide, an Army buddy, he now lives in Florida, so he is no help today. .

Walk across the intersection to Pat's. It is much better.
Just say "whiz/with," that will add cheese whiz and onions to your Philly cheese steak. Live like the locals.

I went to both Genos and Pats. Pretty much tasted the sane to me.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Tex-Mex is truly a Texas thing I guess. You can’t even get good Mexican food or Tex-Amex in Arkansas. It was so bad we laughed through our meal in Hot Springs last year.

Good Mexican food can be found up there. There’s even some real Mexicans. It just takes a lot of trial and error to figure out what’s what, since the locals don’t know. If you’re there for a week or two, it’s not worth the research. Long term, a little leg work can pay off.
