Where to Eat in Colorado - Taste of Philly

As you know, our family loves to eat (maybe with the exception of our boys... picky little things!) ;) We love to find little treasures amidst the McDonald's and Olive Gardens, Applebees and worn out steakhouses. We love to find new and different, and though some places are well known, we get excited when we finally stumble upon them.

And so, I decided that I would share some of these places with you all. Places from here in Colorado Springs and Denver, to Clarksville and the middle TN area, to California and even Philadelphia... and anywhere else we might travel. If you don't live in any of these areas, there may be one close to you, so pay attention!

I found this first place about two months ago when I was lost in Denver. Yes, I was lost in Denver. And my GPS who we've named Gypsy was not helping me. So, I was driving down the street and passed this small restaurant that said Philly on it and it had a picture of a Philly Cheesesteak. I was driving about 40 miles an hour so I just saw it in passing, but I immediately told Frank about it. The only problem is, I had NO idea where I was when I saw it. Helpful, heh?!

Fast forward to a couple weeks ago, the kids and I were having a lazy Saturday here at home. We were hungry, but didn't want anything in the house. Pizza is... boring and the kids don't like Chinese food. We were all in our jammies and didn't want to go out, so I googled delivery places in Colorado Springs, and as I was scrolling through, discussing options with the kids, I saw it.

As most of you know, since 2008 we have spent a lot of time in Philly. While there, we discovered our love of Philly Cheesesteaks and made it a point to try as many places there as possible. I'll talk more about our favorite place there, later. 

So back to Taste of Philly... the menu looked promising, free delivery looked even better, but I admit, I was a little skeptical. I ordered a cheesesteak for me, Kass and Kam chose to split a meatball sub and the little three split a chicken tender basket. Our food was delivered in under an hour, the sandwiches were hot and cheesy and gooey and somewhat messy, but very worth it! I wouldn't say it's the best Philly cheesesteak I've ever had, but it's the best one I've ever had outside of Philly, and it was pretty darn great. I may have tested the kids food too. ;o) The meatball sub was delicious and the chicken was... well.... chicken. LOL Their french fries were pretty good though. :) And for dessert? Tastykakes, of course! It satisfied my craving for authentic Philadelphia flavor and we'll definitely be back there again. :)

Taste of Philly's menu has a wide range of selections from grinders to wraps to salads, specialty sandwiches, yummy sides and of course cheesesteaks, any way you'd like them. There are seventeen locations throughout Colorado to serve you, so order today

The Lord uses everything that happens for a purpose. Praying!
2 Corinthians 4:16-18 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
