Ritner is cute? it's just a street name in Phila. I kinda liked the street names.

It's a good thing Kibbee never went to Roy's Place. :)

Yes, I'm glad I never went there. The names aren't cutesy, they're pretentious. And WTF is turkey bosom?

Is there a place in our area where I can actually go in, order a Philly Cheesesteak, and get a real one?

The same as "Chicken Chest" (another one of their nicknames). I first went here in the mid-1980s! The owner definitely meant the names to be "cute" rather than "pretentious" - it was actually a fun place, even though the sandwiches really weren't all that good. I retroactively retired Roy's Place in Italic because, well, why not.

We used to go decades ago when I lived in MoCo. Usually had one of the sandwiches with golden sauce. It was a fun place with a fun menu - food was ok but usually good value.
