I was recently in Philly for a conference and of course had to find the best cheese steak sandwich in town. That wound up not going so well but I stumbled upon Becks in the meantime so it all worked out. The first day I...More

While staying at the Marriott across the street, I visited Beck's for breakfast. I had a breakfast po boy. Wow, that was tasty. Eggs/bacon/cheese. All for $4.75. As the stand was not busy, I also had a nice conversation with the friendly waitress.

Delicious combination of beef, andouille sausage and salami exploding in your mouth. Oh yeah! The bun was light, not too over powering. Had enough to enjoy then and later.

Let me first say, I've been to N.O. and several authentic Cajun Restaurants and this was my first visit here. The service was great and I absolutely loved, loved the bread pudding. The Alligator Gumbo had too much heat for my taste. It was so...More
