Sandwich Quest: Beck’s Cajun Café

Beck’s Cajun Café caught my attention for Sandwich Quest after the Train Wreck Po Boy won a Best of Philly award in the best sandwiches in Reading Terminal Market category. That was in 2011 and I tried the sandwich a few weeks after, but never wrote about it.

Why? No good reason. Just another place that we never got around to writing about.

This happens more frequently than we’d like so be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter or even our new “live” page for instant updates on the great food we eat.

Back to the Train Wreck. I was reminded of the awesomeness this sandwich packs during recent stop in Reading Terminal. You can also get it at the new-ish Beck's location in 30th Street Station. It’s quite simply one of the best sandwiches of Sandwich Quest.

The “train wreck” of chopped steak, salami and spicy andouille sausage makes the po boy a true Philly + Creole sensation. The meat is combined with Beck’s creole mayo and (what I think is) American cheese melted into a creamy deliciousness. The kick of the creole andouille and mayo with the traditional steak is an excellent combo.

At $7.95, the Train Wreck Po Boy is average-priced for a sandwich in Center City these days, and definitely worth it. The pictures tell the rest of the story.

Happy eating!

C'mon... how GOOD does this look?

This is an awesome sandwich that replaces the traditional cheesesteak any day. Beck's makes a great sandwich, but their sides are so-so
