    Opened in 1930, Pat's chops its steak while Geno's does not. Grab one of the 1,500 steak sandwiches they make daily - "wit" or "wit-out," your choice.

    Visitors can't make a trip to Philadelphia without trying the famous Pat's cheesesteak. Since 1930, this iconic establishment has been making Philly cheesesteaks on fresh Italian rolls.

    Pepper steak wit whiz. Really delicious. Hits the spot . Super fast service , Cash only and can be hard to get a seat. Other than that I'd stop here every trip in Philly.

    Meat is wonderful. Cheese is scrumptious. Pat's King of Steaks is a masterpiece that you must have especially when you're in Philly. Chucho from Cali, Colombia loves it. Shit talkers shouldn't opine

    Really good! Def better than Geno's! Was a little greasy towards the end of the sandwich but otherwise it was the best Philly cheesesteak EVER!

    Awesome cheesesteak. As a first timer I preferred Pat's over Geno's but my wife is vise-versa. Don't forget the cherry peppers.

    Tried Geno's & Pat's- Pat's is better hands down! The difference? At Pat's the steak was chopped up, with the cheese whiz on top of all of the toppings instead of the bun. Much better!!!

    Do the Cheesesteak Challenge - have one from Pat's and one from Geno's and then pick your side of the street. When you order from either, just specify your type of cheese and whether you want onions.

    I'm an out-of-towner visiting Philly for the 1st time. Was so excited about Pat's because of all the hype. All I can say is the meat was fresh, but it was also tough and had no flavor whatsoever.

    Order FAST. They don't want to wait! Say: "Steak with and wiz" ("with" means onions. Say "without", if you don't want them. I highly recommend "with", though.) Don't order any cheese! Wiz is the way!

    Best cheese steaks in Philly, go for the classic "Wiz Wit"- that's with onions and cheese whiz; there's no time to waste, so have your order ready, get it right, or get to the back of the line.

    Better meat than Geno's but staff's very pushy to move the line. Know what you want ahead of time if possible. They should put some menu signs near beginning of line.

    The venerable old favorite still makes a tasty sandwich, though tough to recommend over Geno's, which is right across the street. Maybe for a changeup once in awhile.

    Cheesesteak ordering etiquette: for a steak w/ Cheez Whiz & onions, order “Whiz Wit.” If u prefer provolone & no onions, order “Provolone Witout.” Wanna go to the back of the line? Ask for fontina. Read more

    I'm still 50/50 on the merits of a Philly cheesesteak but Pat's is truly the classic. Don't screw around with that weird, loudly advertised, 90s flames Guy Fieri hot mess Geno's next door.

    We did the official taste test. Side by side. Geno's might be prettier, but Pats steaks are less roll, more Whiz, not as greasy and staff is much friendlier. Genos did have the cool peppers though.

    If you enjoy lots of cheese, you're better off w/Whiz not (white)American. Overall the meat was a bit chewy, I preferred Geno's. It was my 1st time but, I tried both.

    Be careful: If you're not a fan of onions, they tend to get mixed in with the meat since they're cooked so closely from one another. If you're a "wit" kind of person, then you'll have no problem!
