3 words 8 letters, say it and I’m yours….”I got food” Well the Territory Days Festival in Old Colorado City had me all day with it’s ample supply of food and beers at my finger tips. Before you can truly enjoy any street meat festival you need so get a proper buzz in place so the first stop of the day was Mother Muffs. Now I’ll revisit Mother Muffs at a later time to sing its well deserved praises however, all you need to know for now is it has amazeballs bloody Marys and awesome craft beers.
After enjoying an appropriate amount of social lubrication it was off to the races. Walking through a sea of drunk white people, gyros and fried snickers….. I saw out of the corner of my eye a beautiful sign that read “cheesesteak”. Now being from Philadelphia originally I had to know how a Colorado cheesesteak would stack up. So here’s my initial feedback:
The meat was cooked to utter perfection! The savory beef danced across my taste buds however, there needed to be more of it. The meat to cheese to bread ratio was not up to par (60% meat 30% cheese and 10% bread) they were rocking 40% meat. Also the cheese was not melted, need I say more? I understand that they were trying to serve a crowd of drunk people so I won’t hold it against them. Just stop chasing waterfalls with your bread and I’ll come back for sure.
The second sandwich of the day we needed to go with a more impressive meat ratio. Feast your eyes on this beautiful baby below:
Once again the meat was cooked to savory perfection! This sausage had the fantastic flavor and wasn’t smothered out by the bread. I think this sandwich could move mountains with it’s ideal combination of smoke and heat. If you’re ever in Old Colorado City EAT.THIS.SAUSAGE. That is all.
