The second location for 66-year-old cheesesteak institution Joe's Steaks and Soda Shop (formerly known as Chink's Steaks) is finally nearing completion in Fishtown. The opening for the new shop at Girard and Frankford avenues has been set for Wednesday, April 1 at 11 a.m.
To fit into their new hood, this Joe's will offer veggie burgers and vegan cheesesteaks in addition to their signature items. They're also promising a grilled cheese menu, even more milkshakes, and a roomier dining room than the original, with seating for 100.
The original location, on Torresdale Avenue in the Northeast, will remain open.
