THE TEXADELPHIA STORY
OUR HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
When our founder, Joel Stanley, moved from Philadelphia PA to Austin in 1980, he brought his love of a great Philly cheesesteak, a local place where everyone is treated like family. With a grill and a dream, Joel served cheesesteaks with a Texas twist in the heart of Austin. He opened his first Texadelphia in Austin in 1981, followed quickly by opening one on “The Drag” (Guadalupe Street across from the University of Texas campus). From “Day One”, Texadelphia was a hit, first with UT students, but then with Austin residents across the city.
THE TEXADELPHIA DIFFERENCE: IT'S ALL ABOUT THE FOOD!
Soon after the first Texadelphia opened, the word spread of Texadelphia’s Cheesesteaks, Fresh Queso, and house-made Guacamole and amazingly addictive Mustard Blend. With a lot of hard work and the help of our fans, we’ve opened more restaurants with the same passion and commitment to food, our friends and a truly unique experience.
We start with the highest quality, fresh ingredients. We make each and every cheesesteak to order and top it with a signature sauce of your choice. All of our cheesesteaks, burgers, salads and deli-sandwiches are served with complimentary tortilla chips and fresh salsa. It’s how our founder did it, it’s how we do it. It’s our passion.
Today’s Texadelphia menu has grown from just one great cheesesteak… Our menu features a great variety of Original Texas Cheesesteaks for all tastes, scratch made Queso, Guacamole and Salsa as well as Signature Sauces that are made in-house every day. Other offerings include Burgers, Salads and Deli Sandwiches. All of our Cheesesteaks and sandwiches are served with tortilla chips and our scratch made salsa and can be topped with one of our signature sauces for free.
But when it comes down to it, we do one thing better than anyone else. We are the home of the “Original Texas Cheesesteak.” It’s what we’ve been doing since 1981
