I checked out this place one night when I was crazing a really good cheesesteak. I didn’t feel like going out so I checked out all the delivery apps to see what might appease me. Low and behold I came across Wicked Cheesesteaks. I checked out their website and learned a bit about them as I had never heard of them. They actually import Amoroso’s rolls from Philly. That is the key to any good cheesesteak. The interesting thing is that you can’t actually go to this restaurant if you wanted to. It is what they call a “Virtual Restaurant”. This type of restaurant is setup to just deliver their food to you at home. Who knew this was a thing.
Wicked Cheesesteaks operates as a “Ghost Kitchen” or a “Virtual Restaurant” meaning that orders are placed online, through apps like UberEATS, GrubHub, & DoorDash, and delivered directly to you. They share a kitchen with another existing brick and mortar restaurant, where orders are prepared, and picked up for delivery.
There is a pretty robust menu of sandwiches, burgers, and wings. Wicked Cheesesteaks also has appetizers and sides that give you tons of food choices. If you prefer to eat a little healthier they even have salads that you can choose from. Deserts are plentiful as well but they will pack on the calories.
I decided to get the Wicked Philly Cheesesteak Combo. An authentic Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich prepared with a heaping half-pound portion of your choice of grilled thin-sliced beef steak or grilled chopped chicken breast, grilled chopped onions, and melted provolone and mozzarella cheeses, served inside a famous Amoroso’s hearth-baked hoagie roll (shipped down from Philly). Combo includes choice of French Fries or Tater Tots and choice of soda or bottled water. Served with a side of ketchup and a side of A1 steak sauce. Additional grill-ins, sauces, and sides are available.
I went with the French Fries, but I was not overly impressed with them. They were kind of thick and no flavor to them at all. I really liked the look when I saw them, but the taste was just not there. Maybe add some old bay seasoning to them.
The Cheesesteak itself though did not disappoint. The roll is exactly how I remember them growing up in the Philly area, and the steak was cooked perfectly. The melted Provolone and mozzarella cheeses added to the authenticity of this great sandwich. The grilled onions helped top off the sandwich and make it taste just like home.
Wicked Cheesesteaks pricing will vary based on the app you order from and what you decide to get. But for a “ghost restaurant” I would highly recommend it.
