Ok, I admit it...I struggle with food addiction. Thought I had it under control until The Philly Grill went and opened up in North Park and ruined my sobriety. Now thanks to them I’m seriously addicted to their philly sandwiches. And the super friendly owner, Suzanne, claims ZERO responsibility for her blatant enabling behavior, just becuz she’s got this big sign in her front window that says – WARNING:HABIT FORMING. Well, with all her ‘hauty tauty’ reviews plastered all over the window I couldn’t even see the damn sign! So it took like four days for me to punch up the ‘buy 10/get one free sandwich card’. On top of that, I was the first one to reach 10 and can you believe the phony baloney owner wouldn’t even put my lousy picture on the wall in recognition of my achievement!?

So now I go in (usually shaking in need of my fix), sit down and scarf down my sandwich which is piled high with meat and peppers and melted cheese while I listen to the owner, Suzanne, ask me in her little girl voice “do I want a doggie bag?” knowing full well that I’m not going to leave a lousy crumb.

So like I never write letters to magazines but I felt I needed to warn people about this place over at Alabama and University. Don’t be fooled just because the food tastes great, and it's friendly, fun and clean. Take it from me, it’s a dangerous place.

The Philly Grill in North Park is superb! Like many "hole in the wall" restaurants this one is a great find. The owner Suzanne welcomes you with a hearty hello and smiling service. She is also quick to recommend her favorite combinations for the best sandwich to fit your desires.

The original philly cheese with a mix of hot and sweet peppers and american cheese will have you addicted from the first bite. If you enjoy mushrooms, you have to try the mushroom steak sandwich with sweet peppers,and Wiz cheese...oh my delightful!

Don't forget to complete your meal with the french fries and onion rings. The french fries I expected to be just another fry, but was pleasantly suprised with the garlic flavoring. The onion rings are another easy addiction. I am a lover of onion rings and these are by far the best I have ever had.

Next on my to try list is the philly cheese fries. The seasoned fries topped with steak or chicken and Wiz cheese. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Wherever you are located in San Diego, it is worth the drive to try a sandwich. The hardest part will be deciding which one to choose!
