This former South Street hot dog shop is getting a new tenant with promises of greatness.
At 630 South St., Woodrow’s Sandwich Shop will open later this month, with the goal of creating the best sandwiches in Philadelphia.
More from Billy Penn:
Expect eight to 10 affordably priced options on the regular menu ($8-$9), supplemented by daily and seasonal specials. On the side, hand-cut fries will go for just $3.75 an order — “I’d rather everyone get them than not,” Kramer says.
His exact menu is still being finalized, but the three “core” options are set.
There’s a South Philly roast pork made with long-hot aioli and juicy, house-roasted shoulder (“I love roast pork, but it’s so often dry”); a meatball sandwich that places marinara-braised beef-veal-lamb balls on toasted garlic bread and tops them with a mound of shaved sharp provolone; and a herb-and-parm-crusted grilled cheese that melts American and taleggio onto crisp slices of pear — if you’re not veg, add prosciutto cotto (Italian cooked ham).
Hours will be from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. from Tuesday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Woodrow’s Sandwich Shop is expected to open on January 16.
