If you’re like me, and you’ve ever found yourself wandering around in Union Station in Washington, D.C., looking for something to eat… well, you’re in luck, as there is an awesome place to eat, right downstairs.  Union Station is full of places to eat; most are fast food chains you’ve heard of.  I get it, you’re in a hurry so you go with what you know.  You shouldn’t cheat yourself though, because the Great Steak and Potato Company is REALLY good.

It was getting late, and I was hungry after a day of walking around D.C.  I found myself in Union Station, about to make a bad food decision when my nostrils were smacked with the smell of cheese steak.  I followed my nose and found the Great Steak and Potato Company, trying to close for the day.  The manager was kind enough to crank out two more sandwiches for my wife and I.  We both ordered the Philly Cheese Steak sandwich and fries.  As fast food cheese steak sandwiches go, it was great… I’d even put it up against several that I have had from fancier sit down style restaurants.

Next time you’re in Union Station and looking for places to eat, skip the huge piece of pizza that’s been sitting there all day, and get yourself a nice sandwich!
