West Chester Man Declare's Nick's Roast Beef Sandwich In Springfield DEEELISH!




Sweet Jesus, son of Mary, Son of God, closely related to the Holy Ghost do I LOVE the roast beef sandwich at Old Original Nick's Roast Beef in Springfield, PA.

Just look at it. Oh my God it's so good. I've been there a bunch of times but went last week and took these amazing photos. I wish there was a place in Chester County that served hand cut roast beef like this on a great roll and topped with gravy. And prove and horseradish.

The closest thing is the Blarney Stone but they use deli meat. It's not even close.

I tried to duplicate it at home a few months ago but found out later that they cover the beef in fat before roasting it. AND they puree vegetable into the gravy.

Oh. And when I was there, I was wearing a white dress shirt and some lady kept looking at me and then finally said, "I hope you don't get any gravy on that nice white shirt." Uh. OK

Also I learned that blue collar Irish people talk REALLY loudly. Seriously, keep your voices down.

Anyways, it's a tasty ass sandwich. To read a detailed review from a local blogger that I know click here.

Maybe that lady reads your blog. Did you spill any on your shirt? Be honest...

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - I didn't but I was afraid I would and then she would say, "I TOLD YOU TO BE CAREFUL!"

At first I thought, "you're such a dude", because my husband would flip out for that sandwich. Then, though - you described it, and now - now, I really want one.
