    A little flavorless. I'm pretty disappointed. Bread was hard to chew. Expected better. No customer service either.

    This is a great attraction in Philly, but it is really overrated. You can definitely get a much better cheesesteak in south philly. I do not reccomend it for your first Philly cheesteak.

    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.

    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.

    The HOT sauce! It may look bland or mild, but it has tons of heat packed in every ounce, and it lingers. A few drops across your sandwich should be MORE than enough. Wash it all down with Birch Beer..

    If you believe that Geno's is "racist," shut up and go elsewhere. Wanting your customers to order in English does not quantify with "racism." You'll get a better steak somewhere else, anyway.

    El sabor no es del otro mundo, pero el servicio si lo es, pero como de un mundo muy, muy lejano, a donde la atención al cliente no importa. Tratan a los clientes a las patadas y solo reciben efectivo
