We ate lunch at Geno's after visiting UPENN earlier this week. We enjoyed the lunch. The steak sandwich has sliced steak and provolone melted with onions. The bread on the sandwich was very tasty. The service was quick and moved along. Check it out as it is a Philly establishment.

Famous, and the food lives up to it. Not too expensive, but out of the way for most visitors, so put it in your schedule in advance. For those without a car, take the 47 bus from Independence Hall. Keep in mind they only take cash and there is no enclosed seating.
