Last week, I was looking for a place to have a burger for lunch in the Mt. Airy/Germantown area. I received a couple burger recommendations but even more suggestions to go to McNally’s Tavern in Chestnut Hill and eat a Schmitter. Instantly, my mind was made and I made the way to McNally’s with a friend.
The Schmitter is a sandwich consisting of sliced beef, cheese, fried onions, tomato, grilled salami, and Schmitter sauce. It is also served on either a kaiser roll or long roll (double). My stomach got the best of me and I went with the long roll version. Either that, or I just would rather eat a sandwich on a long roll instead of a kaiser roll. Totally didn’t need the size of the long rolled version though.
This sandwich was damn delicious. After consumption, I kept thinking how THIS should be the sandwich of Philadelphia. Seriously. It’s that good.
I’m not really a Phils fan, but you can get Schmitters at Citizens Bank Park! This fact alone would help coax me into going to a game.
Have you ever had a Schmitter? How do you think it ranks compared to cheesesteaks and roast pork sandwiches?
