Big Mike's Steaks and Hoagies and Forksville Covered Bridge: Near Worlds End State Park in Sullivan County's Endless Mountains

Just about the last place you would expect to find an authentic Philly cheesesteak is in the middle of the woods, about 3 hours from the city, but that is the case at Big Mike's Steaks and Hoagies at the historic Forksville General Store building, just outside of the Worlds End State Park boundary in one of the most scenic and remote areas of the state. They have ample space indoors, and a beautiful grove outdoors that overlooks beautiful Loyalsock Creek and the large and historic Forksville Covered Bridge. Additionally, the outdoor grove dining area is dog friendly, which is perfect for us. 
This place has one of the most compelling and random backstories of any eatery. Big Mike moved to the area and opened up his eatery in 1999 and it has steadily grown ever since. It is definitely booming now, which is awesome for the area. It is a lively hub of activity in one of the most beautiful areas of the state. He has opened up a South Philly style cheesesteak shop in this area, and it really is an anchor for the whole area. 

They also authentically source their bread and more, right from Philly. They also have sodas from Allentown's fantastic A-Treat and other delicious menu options that are not cheesesteaks as well.

The food is fantastic and the scenery is incredible. Such a pleasant place to spend some time and relax. We highly recommend visiting it and the beautiful surrounding area. It is located just off the edge of World's End State Park, and about a 40 minute ride west from Rickett's Glen State Park. If you are coming to Rickett's Glen from the west, like we do, we definitely recommend routing yourself through Forksville to get a bite to eat at Big Mike's and visit Worlds End State Park as well.
