We got word last week from Phil’s Steaks they are adding a 2nd truck to their fleet. We were sworn to secrecy until their official announcement earlier today, but click through for the gory details.
If you recall, we were early supporters Phil’s, trying them out their very first day on the street. Phil’s was the 1st authentic Philly cheesesteak truck in NYC, even bringing Amoroso’s rolls up from Philly.
It was a great moment when a vendor we’ve been supporting since Day 1 won the Rookie of the Year Vendy Award in 2012. Kind of reminded us of Souvlaki GR, who we also supported from Day 1, and they won Rookie of the Year in 2010 (and the People’s Choice Award in 2011, ftw).
Like every other food truck, Phil’s has had their share of problems, but not enough to keep them from adding a 2nd truck. Phil’s tells us they expect the 2nd truck to be on the road in May. This means they will have a presence in midtown and in FiDi every day.
Added bonus – the new Phil’s truck will have phries too!
