Philly Finds – PHILLY’S BEST MOZZARELLA STICKS

Before you continue, be sure to subscribe to my weekly newsletter here!


You’ve heard of Philly’s best pizza, best hoagie, and best cheesesteak…

But this summer, two girls are on a new mission…

And you can join them.

One of my best friends Tricia is famously the pickiest eater I know, with mozzarella sticks being a delicacy she actually enjoys. She had the idea we go on a mission this summer to find Philadelphia’s best mozz sticks this summer. Join us as we explore and discover the best Philly and the tri-state area has to offer, from diners, mom and pop shops and fast food chains. While I will be providing updates here on the blog, MUCH more in-depth reviews (read: cheese pulls) and commentary will be featured on my Instagram stories.

Judging criteria includes:

  • Presentation
  • Grease factor
  • Cheese pull (arguably most important)
  • The crunch
  • Dipping sauce (we are taking this into consideration as it is part of the experience).

It is also important to note other factors:

  • We WILL be taking into consideration if we dine at the dining establishment, OR if we do takeout.
  • We also will be accepting other forms of fried mozzarella into consideration.

Some other places on our list include (we will try our best to visit them all):

Please DO send us more recommendations. And if you’ve been safe and are vaxxed and would like to join us for a guest spot, applications are available now (by way of Instagram DM)!


Meet our first contenders:

Barnaby’s Havertown

We were pleasantly surprised by one of Delco’s finest institutions! While the crunch is excellent, they could be more flavorful in the breading. Still a tasty app overall.

Rating: 6.5/10

Applebee’s

Our first chain experience of the competition. Now, there was some disagreement among our group of four. I found them to be less than edible, while others enjoyed. Do what you will with the rating below.

Rating: 5.5/10

The Green Room

The highest ranking one of this grouping. A+ for the newspaper presentation, which evokes that of a British pub. The group consensus was “good breading.”

Rating: 7.5/10

A recap of the current rankings:

1.) Green Room

2.) Barnaby’s

3.) Applebee’s
