    It's a little out of the way, but if you're ever in Philadelphia it's worth making the detour for the super juicy "whiz wit" <3

    You can't leave Philadelphia without deciding who makes the best cheesesteaks. Located across from Pat's King of Steaks, the two cheesesteak meccas have been competing for more than 40 years.

    Loved their onion, whiz& American cheese steak-sandwich. I highly recommend buying it and keeping wrapped for 20 mins or more (longer better) to let the flavor really soak in. Made a huge difference!

    Mostly for the tourists,this is one of Phillys big 3 Steak joints,and while tasty (especially with "Wiz" on it)it's still pales to the OG classics like Pats Steaks or "Jims" further uptown.

    Did not know they had signs that says "speak English we are in America" I would have gone across the street. The sandwiches were not worth the trip from NYC. The onions were still raw. Meh

    Whiz wit. Cash only. Served hot so be patient. Stuffing your face right after you get your hands on a steak will earn you a burnt mouth.

    Don't let them intimidate you and don't worry about the people in line. They're probably too drunk to remember you.

    Bland taste. Breading is too much. No flavor to the mushrooms, onions, or even the steak.

    Just tried Pat's and Geno's for the first time. Pat's wins. The cheese is much better at Pats, there's more beef, it tastes better. Geno's is dry, kind of carby, barely grilled onions cafeteria food.

    Cheesesteaks: Pat's vs Geno's--Geno's won. My biggest tip would be to wrap the whiz-wit for at least 5-10mins instead of having it immediately. Juices of the steak&melted whiz REALLY come together!

    There are two long lines. Go across the street and get your cheesesteak from Pat's instead if you like chopped steaks instead of sliced like this.
