Latest Steak Escape news and reviews
JM ate the Wild West BBQ with a soda.
Nichole ate the Great Escape.
We split some loaded fries.
The bill was $19, or $9ish/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole gave Steak Escape a C (see our grading rubric).
Steak Escape is easily the most expensive meal either of us has ever had at a food court. Nineteen dollars for two people getting standard sized sandwiches, loaded fries and a beverage may be a $20 proposition more often than we had realized, but it was still pretty shocking.
Then we tried the food, which, get this, is actually pretty good for food court fare. JM's Wild West BBQ sandwich was actually a decent cheesesteak variant, while Nichole's standard 'Great Escape' was not really a great cheesesteak, but certainly was filling; she also was able to get veggies which is a nice add-on. And the loaded fries are worth it (cheese and bacon). The Steak Escape has given East Towne a decent, quick, but not noteworthy, place to eat.
