Philadelphia’s Phinest at P.Y.T.


Tommy Up’s P.Y.T. is offering up a burger that couldn’t be more Philadelphian if it featured Ben Franklin running up the steps of the Art Museum and into the embrace of the Phanatic while being serenaded byHall & Oates.

It’s the Cheesesteak Pretzel Burger and it is for just a limited time.

We start with a juicy PYT Burger cooked to order & topped with cheddar. Then we cover it with thick-cut cheesteak (Wiz Wit of course) & pair it with one of most interesting breads you’ll ever find, the Pretzel Roll. The Pretzel Rolls are from Lancaster and are soft and fresh with a crisp pretzel like skin that holds up well to the large sandwich.

    What is with this website’s undying man-crush on PYT and Rum Bar?

  • Kris

    “thick-cut” cheesesteak? Thick-cut doesn’t sound very appetizing at all.

  • greg

    Is that place still open? Foobooz doesn’t love PYT as much as phoodie- I don’t think they advertise as much here. Place is garbage.

    Nothing says philadelphia like pretzels rolls from Lancaster, hmmmmmmmmm.

    I thought the onion rings at PYT were nasty tasty.

    Pretzel rolls from Lancaster say “philly” to those from Hooterville and S. Jerz.

  • Sarge

    I would wager that nothing on this burger or the burger itself is from Philly. It’s apparently supposed to be a Philly themed burger.

    @ Greg – I just did a search on Phoodie for P.Y.T. there are 6 posts total. And only one of them is really about P.Y.T. (some kind of first look thing).

    And Foobooz mentions Rum Bar when they have events and drink specials. So what? The cucmber infused rum over there is a perfect foil for the mojito sweets.

    Why the hate?

    The only way to make that more Philadelphian would be to wash it down with a Hank’s root beer. Or a Yards IPA, like I am right now.

    @ grubber-

    No hate for rum bar at all, you have it confused, champ. Not so much hate, as it is no love for PYT- whats to like about it- or better yet, worth posting about?

  • McGork

    PYT is money. What more do you need if you’ve got delicious rings, burgers, and alcoholic shakes?

  • Michael

    Cheese whiz should only be used to paint traffic lines.

    We are working on a new restaurant concept. Would you know where on Lancaster we could get these Pretzel Rolls?
