March 24 is officially National Cheesesteak Day, but this quintessential Philadelphia food needs to be celebrated more than just 24 hours once a year. At Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) — where you can order a cheesesteak in every terminal — PHL Food & Shops has made recognizing anything and everything cheesesteak a week-long event.
“We are excited to celebrate our second annual Cheesesteak Week at PHL. From March 20-24, restaurants that sell cheesesteaks or cheesesteak items will be featured in PHL Food & Shops’ ‘Cheesesteak Tour’,” said Dana Pyle, MarketPlace PHL marketing and guest experience manager. “Merchants will display signage designating them as ‘tour stops’. The signage has a QR code that links to a special web page detailing special Cheesesteak Week offers and a contest with a grand prize of Pepsi Zero Sugar and cheesesteaks for a year.”
Stops on the Cheesesteak Tour are:
- Chickie’s & Pete’s, Terminals A-West, C, D/E Connector and E
- Jack Duggan’s, Terminal A-East
- Passyunk Steaks, Terminal B
- Cibo Bistro, Terminal B
- Love Grill, Terminal B
- Independence Prime, Terminal B
- Geno’s, B/C Food Court
- Jim’s, Terminal C
- Bar Symon, Terminal D
- Tony Luke’s, Terminal F
- Win Kitchen, Terminal F
- Local Tavern, Terminal F
Throughout the week, guests can enjoy 20% off classic and chicken cheesesteaks at Jim’s and Tony Luke’s. Anyone needing to grab a cheesesteak to go can order at OrderAtPHL.com or on the Grab app and receive $3 off with the code CHZSTK23.
The week culminates with a cheesesteak tasting and celebration hosted by Lauren Rei of Wooder Ice on March 24 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the B/C Connector stage. Guests can try Chickie’s and Pete’s ultimate crabby cheesesteak, Passyunk Steaks’ classic and chicken cheesesteaks, Geno’s classic cheesesteaks and Jack Duggan’s chicken cheesesteaks; sample Pepsi Zero Sugar; win Pepsi swag; enjoy live music from a DJ; and test their knowledge of cheesesteak trivia.
