Episode of ‘The Goldbergs’ to Focus on Famous South Jersey Restaurant
If you grew up in the 80's, you're probably obsessed with 'The Goldbergs' on ABC, which takes place in Jenkintown, PA. Tonight's episode it set to feature a favorite South Jersey restaurant.
Because of creator Adam F. Goldberg's ties to Philadelphia, the sitcom was bound to eventually address 'The Great Cheesesteak Debate'. While characters Pops and Murray argue over Geno's Steaks and Pat's Steaks, Barry Goldberg's choice is from Donkey's Place in Camden, a sandwich he calls "cheesy beacon of hope.''
While none of the scenes for tonight's episode were shot at the real Donkey's, located on Haddon Ave,, the eatery was fully reconstructed for filming, Courier Post reports.
Donkey's cheesesteak, loved for it's signature poppy-seed Kaiser roll and a trademark ingredient the owner's wouldn't even share with famed chef Anthony Bourdain, is often overlooked by people who think the world's best cheesesteaks come from Philly. Here in South Jersey, we know better. And now The Goldbergs know, too!
'The Goldbergs' air Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
