Philadelphia Cheesesteak Adventure at The Deauville Inn, 201 Willard Rd, Strathmere, NJ. Scored 80/100.

Different Cheesesteak #869. Toto we aren’t in Kansas anymore. The Deauville is all cleaned up with a bigger deck, parking lot attendants and higher prices. I think $17 was high for this cheesesteak. The roll was bready, dense and not easy to eat. The meat was dry but grew on me. It needed more cheese. The fried onions and mushrooms added very little. I did love the Deauville made chips.

Drive TO 1,000! This was my 869th Different cheesesteak in the last 3 years. I’ll be at a 1,000 different cheesesteaks by the end of the year. I love guest eaters, DM me to join me. Actually, I will join you at your favorite spot.
