Spataro's Cheesesteaks at Reading Terminal Market is celebrating National Cheesesteak Day on Wednesday, March 24, with a giveaway.
Spataro's partnered with Delaware County-based Vesper Bros. Foods to create a pizza steak using the Delco company's sauce.
Complimentary halves of the new pizza cheesesteaks will be served to the first 100 people who ask for them beginning Wednesday at noon.
Customers who receive the freebie are encouraged to donate money, however, with all donations benefitting Reading Terminal directly.
After the giveaway, the sandwiches will be available for $11.99 with ribeye meat, or $13.99 with Angus top round. Customers also can add one additional topping at no extra cost.
"This is definitely one of the best sandwiches we've offered in 74 years of business inside the historic Reading Terminal Market, and we're really excited for people to try it," owner Alex Spataro said. "If we can raise some money for the Market in the process, then this is a definite success."
Spataro's, which opened in 1947, is located under the red neon Liberty Bell sign inside Reading Terminal. The eatery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
