Her comments pertaining to decor, "They are pretty quick with that.... As far as the decor, it's not fancy, but who cares LOL when you're too busy enjoying your sandwich. It looks like an old school lunch stop, which gives it its uniqueness. I believe the counter ladies wore old scool uniforms. Not many places look like that these days. There's something like woodchips on the floor, which catches you by surprise if you have next to nothing on your feet."
She also mentions some unexpected items suchs as pig's feet on the menu and lmost everyone gets a pickled boiled egg which is purple.
Philippe's "French Dipped Sandwich" is the specialty of the house and consists of either roast beef, roast pork, leg of lamb, turkey or ham served on a lightly textured, freshly baked French roll which has been dipped in the natural gravy of the roasts. Swiss, American, Monterey Jack or Blue cheese may be added. To accompany your sandwich we offer a tart, tangy cole slaw, homemade potato and macaroni salads, hard boiled eggs pickled in beet juice and spices, large Kosher style, sour dill or sweet pickles, black olives and hot yellow chili peppers.
