I need to know the timing on when this was created. It’s a simple question needed to determine if it was the inspiration for the 30 Rock “Cheezy Blaster”, or if it was in fact the other way around.

It was 2003. But the article is inaccurate on one part. Jim’s has HUGE lines compared to Lorenzo’s. If you are solo, get the cheesesteak first. Best is to do a team effort and meet at 2nd and South to assemble and consume.

BTW, Tina Fey is from the Upper Darby area of Philly.

Friends of mine have been threatening to do this, if not actually do this, since we haunted South Street in the late 1980s and early 1990s. I’ve never seen it done, but they sure talked a good talk.
