Thomas Murphy’s Pub, the newly renovated Irish pub located at 157 S. Burlington Street in Gloucester City, NJ, just minutes over the bridge from Philadelphia, has just unveiled a three-pound cheesesteak to its new menu, with a charitable component attached to all sales.
The sandwich, which is called a “3 lb. Cheesesteak for Charity,” features sliced top round steak, Tommy’s cheese sauce, and Jameson Irish Whiskey-spiked fried onions on a two-foot seeded roll. The $22 sandwich (which is also available as a half-sandwich for $12) delivers a boatload of flavor and a $2 donation to the St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Gloucester City Emergency Food Program for every whole sandwich sold.
“We wanted to determine a way to introduce a new sandwich that our customers would love, while also benefitting folks in our community in need,” said Thomas Murphy’s partner Bob Nicodemo. “We think we make an excellent cheesesteak, and now we’re offering something that no one else in the area serves while helping a local emergency food program during a time when many people are food insecure.”
Thomas Murphy’s new menu includes a number of new summer items in addition to the cheesesteak, including three new flatbreads — Avocado Crisp; New England Clam Chowder; and Margarita — as well as shrimp tacos, buffalo chicken tacos, and more.
