Jack's Steaks & Shakes

Just opened in a restored 1883 storefront on West Chester's bar-iest street, Jack's is a red-checkered-floored, two-story 'steak shop w/ twin takeout windows open 'til 11p, all owned by a dude named Jack (!) who's been running restaurants for 30+ yrs. The menu's short & sweet: fries, shakes, and choose-your-own-adventure cheesesteaks, where you'll stuff a roll (Aversa's Italian or whole wheat) with meat (New Zealand beef, chicken, ahi tuna, portobello 'shroom), sauces (incl creamy cheddar and seven different Tabascos) & toppings like long hots, fried onions & goat cheese.
