National Cheesesteak Day and PepperJax go hand-in-hand. Afterall, their philly cheesesteak is what put them on the map 20 years ago. It all started with an idea to grill fresh and a secret family seasoning – the PepperJax philly cheesesteak was born.

When PepperJax originally started, guests could only order a steak or chicken philly. Today, guests can choose from their signature steak, chicken, pulled pork, or sliced Italian sausage option. And at this time of year, they often offer their spin on the Reuben with a Reuben philly. It’s grilled corned beef, sauerkraut, and thousand island dressing with the PepperJax signature philly set-up.


Unlike the East coast, PepperJax uses a Swiss/American blend for their philly cheese option. It comes standard on all phillies unless requested otherwise. They also have cheddar and pepperjack cheese sauce options that can be added as an upcharge if guests prefer.

Each philly cheesesteak is served up on a freshly toasted, authentic hoagie roll. As most know, the bread is an important piece to any philly experience. PepperJax gets it right with theirs and stuck to the east coast to provide. Their bread comes from a family-owned bakery in Philadelphia giving guests a truly authentic experience for the philly cheesesteak in the mid-west.


PepperJax gives fresh a whole new meaning with the use of their grill. Every entree is grilled to-order with PepperJax’ own seasoning. Guests can choose to add onion, mushroom, green pepper, jalapeno, or banana peppers. If you’re into spice, try it with fireball! The grill cook will saute your meat and veggies in jalapeno juice for a little extra kick.

FUN FACT: The fireball process was invented by team members in the early days.

When PepperJax started, some team members noticed that the excess juice from the jalapenos wasn’t being used. They had the idea to try and find a way to use it and the idea to cook with it was presented. Once it hit the grill, the rest was history, and the PepperJax Fireball was born. It’s worth a try if you’re into the heat.

The philly cheesesteak is a must-try at PepperJax. It’s the house recommendation and a necessity to try in person. Sure, it’s the days of delivery and social distancing but nothing beats a philly hot off their grill and if you have the opportunity, take it!

National Cheesesteak Day is Thursday, March 24th and PepperJax is celebrating with a BOGO 1/2 off on all of their philly cheesesteaks. The offer is valid in-store, online, and in their app with promo code. You can find more details on their social media pages at Facebook or follow them at PepperJax Grill (@pjaxgrill) • Instagram photos and videos
