If you have never been to this cheese steak place before you should check it off of you bucket list. It's located in south Philly and it is always a popular attraction. Parking is tough and difficult to find. All parking is parallel parking. The...More

Great sandwich, hugh and a must to do when in Philadelphia. Very busy but staff keeps things moving. Outside seating seems to move quickly, so always a place to sit.

This was the hype for a Philly cheese steak, but the best cheese steak I found was in the marketplace and not from the 2 competitors across from each other. No return trip is needed.

Both Pats and Genos claim to have invented the Philadelphia cheese steak. Those stories probably have some truth embedded in their tale but by no means are these the best in Philadelphia. I’ve had much tastier sandwiches in many neighborhood sandwich shops in the city...More

Couldn't leave town without stopping by this tourist attraction! Not bad. Tender steak, good bread, and of course 'wiz wit'!
