Today, I decided against writing a humor piece and thought you might like to know about a teriffic new Philly-style steak house that has just opened in the suburbs of Dallas, TX.
It is called Alfonso’s and is located at 121 South Main St. in Ferris, TX, just a few miles south east of Dallas on Route 45. It is open Monday through Friday, from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm, and on Saturday from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
The food is better than Philly’s own Pat’s and Gino’s, plus the menu has a scrumptious variety of both hot and cold sandwiches.
The steak house is named after the owner’s (Rose Ann and Clint Beatte) grandfather, Alfonso Ulissi, who came to America with his wife Teresa Salerno Ulissi, from San Paolo, Foggia, Italy, in 1918, and settled in the Burlington, NJ, area.
Two other members of the family perfected some of Teresa’s secret family recipes and opened various Italian restaurants in the Philadelphia area during the 1960s. Clint, the youngest grandchild, specializes in Steaks and hoagies the way his grandfather, Alfonso, always enjoyed them.
If you are in the area, you can stop in and order some delicious highly-perfected Philly-style steaks, or call 972-544-2020 for takeout.
