Paganos Steaks and Shakes Even though they are the newest addition to the Hoagie Trail the Owner Alex has a life time of experience running successful steak and hoagie shops throughout the city. Located at 6300 Torresdale Avenue the store front stands out from the other stores in the area with its trademark orange tile exterior. We recommend a classic Philly Cheese steak with extra sharp provolone or the Fried Chicken Cutlet Italiano. Check out their write-up on shoptacony.com
