    ^Yellow mustard is the shit on hot dogs though. I always order my fast food burgers with just cheese. Fuck all that other nonsense. 
    @dankind introduced me to beer mustard.

    Yellow mustard on hot dogs is acceptable to me only if there are no other options

    Hot dog
    Chopped onion
    Some variety of mustard - beer, stone, spicy, etc

    When I'm making cheeseburger acceptable condiments &toppings to me are bbq sauce, mayo, hot sauce like a Texas Pete, relish, mustard. Not all at the same time (I mean maybe), onions/lettuce/tomato.

    But back to the topic at hand - ketchup on a cheesesteak is acceptable, especially with whiz. Next time anyone goes to Pat's the combo is the Heart Attack (three cheeses) wit, cheese fries, Cherry Coke. And the acceptable time of day is 2:30am.

    That sounds like a great order.
    230 AM is awesome

    My wife puts mustard on hamburgers, so I guess I could see people doing it.  
    Yuck.
    Mustard on a burger is a must for this guy.

    All the big fast food burger places (McD's the King, Wendy's) put ketchup, mustard, pickles and onions on burgers, I don't bother with putting in a special order when I get one, but always wish the mustard wasn't there...doesn't belong. And BK seems to put way too much of it.
    Plus its always the yellow mustard, which frankly sucks. Brown mustard like Guldens at the very least (if not something more exotic/spicy) or GTFO.
    Light mayo, light yellow mustard, and light ketchup is the perfect trifecta for a burger. You're crazy.

    Awesome cheese steak I had today for lunch.  
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 5,888
    Can someone explain the word “wit” to me? I’ve seen it used a few times. When I order a sausage at a ballgame I’ll simply say “one with.”  They know to add grilled onions. Just using that as an example. I assume same concept, just different word?

    Same thing. Wit = With.

    But wit is a thing?  Like it's actually spelled and pronounced that way? 
  • F Me In The BrainF Me In The Brain this knows everybody from other commetsPosts: 23,810
    That is a Philly thing.  I say with but I've only lived in the area for 8 years, all as an adult.
    The locals say it that way.

    The Philly accent is a hidden secret.  Boston takes the cake, but Philly ain't that far behind

    Philly definitely has a unique accent. My grandparents lived there so I visited quite a bit as a kid. Baltimore also has a distinctive accent. I grew up in Maryland, but near DC. Baltimore is a much different accent than what I grew up with.

    No condiments on a cheesesteak, ketchup is possibly allowed in small amounts. Mayo is legal on chicken cheesesteaks tho. Thems the rules.
    This morning, I saw someone post a picture on twitter of mustard on his cheesesteak. 
    Mustard - NO. But if I said I liked a bit of steak sauce on my cheesesteak would the mocking begin :)

    You glow, girl.
    Fixed 😛

    Philly and Baltimore are definitely more cousins than with NYC or Boston. The accents aren't that far off from one another. Long on the ohhhhhhs.

    Although this cheesesteak looks like poop, I did happen to see this place pop up on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives a couple days ago. It looks like an okay place after further review. I'd go there if I lived nearby. 

    This one in the picture, though? Gotta be a user error, Wob.

    Trying to eat better lately, but I couldn’t resist the special at Poe’s this weekend:

    italian style roast pork with homemade charred pineapple salsa and house BBQ creme fraiche

    The description sounds kinda wrong but it looks great.  Assuming it was good?

  • Jearlpam0925Jearlpam0925 Deep South PhillyPosts: 13,374
    I'd eat that.

    My hot take anymore on South Philly and cheesesteaks, roast pork, pizza, stromboli, etc etc is that it's great and all. but  Mexican has overtaken Italian for the best cultural cuisine down here.

    Outside of SPB, which places would you most recommend?
