Eagles center Jason Kelce will try to leave this world with his stomach full from a last meal that includes a Dalessandro’s cheesesteak, Swiaki Meats sausage, Stock’s Bakery pound cake, and maybe some ribs from Mike’s BBQ, writes Nick Vadala for The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Kelce appeared Tuesday on the popular YouTube food show Last Meals that ask guests about their potential last meals and their feelings on death itself.
The show features chef and host Josh Scherer.
Kelce, originally from Ohio, stayed Philly-centric in his food choices, with a nod to Delaware County, where he currently lives.
Dalessandro’s happens to be his wife Kylie McDevitt’s preferred steak. Kelce would get it with American cheese, fried onions, and mayonnaise.
As a Delco resident, Kelce said he is “honor-bound” to go with Dalessandro’s.
“I feel like if you’re in Delaware County, you’re all about Dalessandro’s,” Kelce said.
He’s also partial to Jim’s on South Street, and Tony & Nick’s Steaks on Oregon Avenue (formerly Tony Luke’s).
He described Swiacki Meats’ kabanosy sausage as “a fresher Slim Jim” and he particularly prefers the hot and cheesy kabanosy.
The vanilla pound cake from Stock’s would round out his last meal, a dessert also favored by his wife.
