It is a a disservice to the community of Camden NJ that throughout this 1:40 video not once was the city or town location of this establishment mentioned. And you purposely left the name of it. South Jersey is not Philadelphia it Los Angeles it is many towns and cities. As a member of the community this is extremely disrespectful.

I've never been to Philadelphia or NJ..................but I have been making Cheese Steaks the traditional and right way and love them. I watched this full episode and a lot was mentioned about how they season their onions. Can anyone guess what they are putting on those onions who has been there? I'd rate my current attempts a 9/10 and want to get just the slightest bit better. :)

If you are ever in Honolulu, you have to go the Philly Cheese Steak restaurant there. As a Philadelphian I laughed, but then I went in. And the kid was chopping up the beef, and everything sounded right. The booths were like back home. And the roll was right. I got chatting with the owner, "even the roll was right." He says I kid you not, "we fly them in from Amoroso's." HAHA~!

Cheesesteaks are the most overrated sandwich on the planet. Every shithole state on the east coast has their "own superior version" when in reality they're all the same fucking thing: a greasy, artery-clogging, concoction of meat and cheese on bread - that's it. Just eat whatever you want and if someone gets on their high horse about how "authentic" it is, tell them to stop being a pretentious cunt over poor people food.

These guys are really proud to have been on Bourdain's show. They run the episode on repeat at the bar. RIP.

They should be.
mikedoesseo (13 days ago)
I would be proud too if I was them. I've never been to Philly or NJ, but I love making cheesesteaks at home. I believe I am making them the right and traditional way after lots of research. What do you think they are seasoning their onions with at Donkeys? It looks really good and I want to try to figure it out. Any guesses?

Actually you can go to a lot of S.Jersey restaurants and get a Quality Cheesesteak product. Just as good as Philly. But I suggest hitting them all up because each is unique and all are Excellent!

Bourdain would, of course, go to an out of the way place. I'll take his, and the posters', word for it. Two weeks ago, I picked up my cousins at the airport and we went to Pat's and Geno's as the head of said Miami family was taking them for the Philly experience. I was giving Pat's a second chance after having a bad experience with tough meat 10 years ago. High marks this time for the meat, bread(which the head of the family underlined) and everything else. Geno's was OK, but didn't break the tape that night. Now, if the poppyseed roll at Donkey's is fresh, I won't call it heresy; I'm curious about the spices. I can guarantee crowds from the X-Ponential Music Festival if they're not there already. If they have portable equipment, they should come. R.I.P., Anthony.

We used to eat at Jims' on South Street back in high school on a Friday night. And we ate at Abner's in West Philadelphia on a Saturday night!

fgldnglbs (28 days ago)
Brian Griffin As I said, it was a WHOLE DECADE since I was at either place, so I measure Pat's and Geno's v what I know in my neck of the woods(Bucks) and Pat's, at least that night, got it right for my taste. If Jim's, Delassandro's etc. are revelations, so be it.
Brian Griffin (1 month ago)
fgldnglbs Anyone who namedrops Pat' s and Geno's don't know shit about cheesesteaks. Nice try, tourist.
Matt Hope (1 month ago)
Pats and Genos are tourist traps. In terms of Philly cheesesteaks, they're low tier. Try places like Delassandros, Mama's, and Jim's next time you come to Philly.

I hate the fact that he calls this Jersey style cheesesteaks since all places in the state serve cheesesteaks on a hoagie roll. Is Donkey's the only place to served it on a kaiser roll?

A poppy seed kaiser roll cannot make the sandwich better it can just make it different. That being said I would try one if I was so inclined to go to this neighborhood. I'm in my seventies and this neighborhood was shit even back when I was a kid.

Cheesesteak is so overrated. There are so many more awesome foods to get in Philly that you could eat great meals out every day for years while avoiding cheesesteak. If you want cheap food-truck food anyway the bacon-egg-and-cheese sandwiches are better.
mikedoesseo (13 days ago)
Well guys I love your cheesesteak and have really enjoyed making them at home. What other Philly dishes should I be researching on the internet? I know the roast pork sandwich is supposed to be special. What else would you recommend? :)
