The Perk: A Perkasie Touchstone near Heritage Orchard Hill

If you've lived at Heritage Orchard Hill for a while, you might already know that Tuesday nights mean cheap cheesesteaks at The Perk. Named for the town in which it resides, The Perk hosts a weekly Cheesesteak Night from 4:30 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Tuesday. During this time, you can snag one of the local restaurant's cheesesteak sandwiches for the bargain price of just $2.99.

The promotion has been attracting students, families, and everyone in between to The Perk since 1984, but The Perk has actually been operating since 1850. It was originally known as the South Perkasie Hotel, a regular pit stop for merchants traveling from the Lehigh Valley to Philadelphia. Although The Perk no longer takes lodgers, it does continue to serve up hearty American food.

In addition to the cheesesteaks, The Perk dishes out sandwiches, salads, burgers, and entrees such as crab cakes, pasta, and steak. The Perk also hosts regular live music, so check out its website to see a schedule of upcoming performances.

The Perk: A Perkasie Gathering Place not Far from Heritage Greene

The South Perkasie Hotel has filled many roles in the town's history. When it was first built in 1850, it mostly served as a spot for merchants from the Lehigh Valley to stop and recharge on their way to nearby Philadelphia. By 1908, it had transformed into one of the nation's best-known cattle marts, and is even considered the earliest example of a flea market!

Today locals might just tout the cheesesteak as the The South Perkasie Hotel's most valuable contribution. Now a restaurant and bar, the historic spot goes by The Perk and serves as a local gathering place for the community. It attracts a crowd on Cheesesteak Night (every Tuesday), when it serves Philadelphia's signature sandwiches for just $2.99 apiece. You can snag a bowl of the popular French onion soup, burgers, or comfort food entrees any night of the week—along with a beer or cocktail from the bar. There's live music to enjoy with your meal on Saturdays after 10 p.m.
