The Best in Philly - Jim's Steaks


Felgoise Here: Whenever my buddies visit Philly, there is always one, two and sometimes three adventures to Jim’s Steaks on South Street. After patiently waiting in an elongated line wrapped around the outside of the building, my pals and I gorged ourselves on delicious cholesterol climbing, whiz specials. After engulfing 1.5 - 2 of Jim’s delights, we sat around the table with engorged bellies in a comatose-like state as we contemplated the seemingly impossible record eating feats. Guiness Book of World Records title holder for banana split eating, Linda Kuerth ate 11 cheeseteaks in an hour and half in 1977 and high school football player Alex Friedman bested that by one sandwich in 2001. In January 2007, Bob Shoudt devoured 13 sandwiches during a stunt qualifying for Philadelphia’s Wing Bowl Competition. At least the record breakers don’t have to pay for their steaks in cash as their only cost is an extended day of indigestion.
