New Sandwich shop coming downtown

Walking home tonight, I saw a sign for a new sandwich shop coming soon.  It’s just south of  Mirage in the 200 block of Market St.  The name is something like Philly Rabe and I am hoping all they serve is this sandwich, because ever since I watched this episode of The Best Sandwich in America on the Travel Channel, it’s pretty much all I’ve wanted.  (This may or not be a slight exaggeration, but damn, that sandwich looks delicious!)

  1. I hope that is not the name. Starting up a brand with a name that will be greatly mispronounced and misunderstood is marketing suicide… but if they serve that sammich they could be called HitlerBurger and I would eat there.


  2. The grand opening is today. Looking at the menu now and I think I might have to grab…

    Roasted Pork Sandwich:
    Slow Roasted Pork Loin with Provolone Cheese, Broccoli Rabe, and Mayonnaise on a
    12” Philadelphia Style Hoagie Roll – $6.99

    Who’s hungry?


  3. They have a good thing going that I got to experience today. With mixed results. An employee from Philly Rabe’s came in to where I work, (I don’t usually work Saturdays so not sure if this a regular thing) and offered to take our order and deliver it back AND make change. I didn’t get what I ordered and didn’t realize it before I paid but I like the chutzpah of the new start up and wish them all the best. FWIW, my boss got what she ordered and loved it. So, with a few glitches that need to be worked out, this place has a lot of promise.


  4. I tried Philly Rabe’s this weekend. The Roast Pork was great, the brocoli rabe was a little too strong for me, but others would probably like it. I will go again.


  5. This is a great addition to Frederick. Very friendly and quick service- the roast pork with broccoli rabe sandwich was outstanding. I asked the owner if he’s going to do cheesesteaks as well and he said he would like to, if/when he can get a large enough exhaust system installed. Check this place out, this is a classic sandwich that’s worth trying. My wife got a hoagie and it was also great — very authentic and tasted like the delicious ones we would get in the Philly area, that they just can’t quite seem to replicate down here for some reason (until now).
