Boo-Kies – Philly Cheese Steak

So if you’re on Church Street in Burlington, hankering for a Philly Steak and can’t make it to Tommy’s City Grill, where are you going to go? The answer lies in a food cart, named “Boo-kies”. Thankfully due to having a roof over his head, he was available just after a rainstorm while other food carts were no where to be seen.

The default configuration of the Philly Cheese Steak comes with the traditional Cheez Wiz (wit Wiz).

I prefer my philly’s with real cheese, Boo-kies told me they had “Swiss-American” which they use on their burgers. The meat was frozen, but nicely marbled, so I suspect this may be the semi-traditional shaved Ribeye Steak. Onions, green AND red peppers, and finally a decent roll, that was slightly toasted with some butter on the grill.

At $4.75 the Philly is a little pricey considering it’s half of a full sub, but it’s one of the better cheese steaks around town. I recommend waiting more than 2-3mins to eat it, as you will burn you mouth as I did. I also hear the burgers are awesome (the hotdogs are not bad). Food carts are cash only of course.

    yeah again your wrong the phrase “wit” has nothing to do with the cheese it is refering to onions “wit” is with onions “witout” is without onions wiz comes standard ,the proper phrasing is a wiz witout

    yea bookies is mediocre and deffinately not worth the 4 or 5 bucks hes charging for a puny burger. If burlington was a real city therwe would be more competition in these types of food . unfortunately this is the only burger stand. your best bet would be to go the kebab stand or ahli babas open till 5 your 5 bucks will go alot further
