As far as who invented it is really a non answerable question because peolpe have always used meat and bread together. Like the Anchor Bar claiming to be the inventor of chicken wings. DO you really think they were the first ones ever to apply sometype of BBQ or Hot Sauce to Chicken? Probably not BUT they did drive it to the masses in such a popular way that it caused a chain reaction. As far as who propelled the cheesesteak to the popularity that it has grown to today. That would have to go to Pat's and Geno's on the corner of 9th / Passyunk/ Wharton.

WIthout these two competing steak shops I am not sure we would have our lovely ever blossoming cheesteak in our culture the way we do.

By the way even though they are the ones who made it popular Cosmi's still has the best steak in the city. Order it on the Sarcone roll with double american and onions.

first off - it ain't a Buffalo wing if you're usin' BBQ sauce.
and, yes, they were the first to serve Buffalo wings.
They are likely the first to serve that part of the chicken as a dish, since most chefs used those portions for their chicken stock.But, I suppose that is debatable.

but, yeah - you're point is taken. You don't have to be the first to be the one we all identify as being the first.

    Why don't we all make up our own language?

    In that way Roadfood could become a veritable state of the art tower of babel. Sounds good to me.
    Let's start: Gwerthfawrogir eich cymorth.

    OK, I did not make up my own language, it is Welsh and says...well, it would not be a true tower of babel if I did reveal what it says. You can be assured it is not offensive or obscene in any way though.

          Thank you, Michael. I thought I was the only one who thought this. Sandwich is a perfectly good word.

          Besides, we just had a coworker leave us who used to use nonsense / babytalk words all the time: "Go lunchies?" "Mommykins!" "Huggies and kissies!"

            This has been debated amongst Philadelphians for more years than I've been alive. I don't think about that part of it. I'd rather just explore all the places in our area that have perfected it.
