Van's IS good! But a mix of Chinese/Vietnamese style.....awesome noodle bowls....and again also crowded at lunch. Another one to get there early!

oh, I forgot: Boston Subworks on Nakoma @ West Ave. More Boston than Philly (think steak "bomb"-the works)

Isn't there still a Dunkin Donuts at hamburger hill (90 and Military) by Lackland? I hope so, I go there at least a couple times per year. Was gonna pick up some on Sunday, but spent too much time at the commisary and didn't feel like being out anymore.

Yes, it's the only one left. However, I have found that they aren't "up to par" with DD elsewhere. Growing up in the hometown of DD, where there is by law one at least every 200 yards, I love my DD! For those of us in the NC part of town, it is a 45 min+ trek over there, however...

BTW, it is the COFFEE that I love so...

well, they're definitely better than krispy kreme. I much prefer a cake donut over the whatever a krispy kreme is.. debating on whether or not I really want some tonight, especially with the nearly pitch black sky out right now...

OK...I am going to get TOTALLY BASHED for this, but I have to tell you, I think that Philly Cheesesteak sandwichs are a "grew up on them" kind of love. My first 3 trips to Philly included MAJOR quest for the "often talked about, imitated but NEVER duplicated" grand slam cheesesteak sand. Well, after going to Pats, and then next trip Ginos and then next time some place downtown (on the corner with a HUGE line out the door, retro diner type of red/black/chrome place that you go upstairs to eat at little tables and it has EVERONE who has ever been ANYONE's pic on the wall)...we left wondering what all the hype is about??? Guess it is like growing up here on "Big Red"...everyone that grows up here LOVES them and all the "got heres" wonder WHAT THE HECK IS THIS JUNK!

My hubby would agree with you, and he grew up in DC! I, myself prefer the Boston steak bomb with everything.

From what I understand, the bread has a lot to do with the taste. But yes, it's probably a "comfort" type of thing

Second the recommendation for Hung Fong.
I have also had trouble finding good Chinese in town too, but can say that these guys are really good and reasonably priced.

I moved here from Merion/Philly in March 2007!

What I really miss is the Thai food at Reading Market!

How about China Latina in King William for Chinese? I haven't found a good cheesesteak place yet though...
