    Did you already hit up Pat’s? Don’t forget: a steak with Cheez Whiz and onions is a “Whiz Wit.” If you’d prefer provolone and no onions, order a “Provolone Witout.” Read more

    Go to Pat's. Pat's cheesesteak tastes better and you don't get a side of hatred with it.

    Opened in 1966, use one window to order sandwiches and another for drinks and sides. Locals rave about the cheese fries.

    Oprah, Sylvester Stallone, Barack Obama and Patti LaBelle have eaten here, among others. The owner caused a national controversy in 2006 by demanding only English be spoken. Regardless, go "Whiz wit." Read more

    World famous Geno's is best enjoyed after midnight. If you would like to see a hodgepodge of construction workers, clubgoers, and tourists, look no further! Keep in mind that it's cash only.

    While Geno's might rub some liberals the wrong way, it can definitely win them back over with their steaks and birch beer. I pick Geno's over Pat's everytime.

    Pats is the original Philly cheesesteak. Ginos is just a tourest attraction. There is barley any meat on their steaks n there meat is dry. The people r ignorant too! Go to pats

    I think Genos is the best cheese steak in Philly. There are other good ones too- but if you want the experience- this one is it- complete with the east coast "watta ya want!!?" attitude.

    Exteriorly, the place looked like a gentleman's club; however, the cheesesteaks were filling. Though I still recommend Pat's King of Steaks.

    Cash Only. A must have (along with Pat's) just to say you did it. Jim's on South Street is better. Plus Geno's is very opinionated and they have those opinions posted everywhere. Sounds racist...
