This widely known cheesteak place in South Philly has become a giant tourist trap complete with long lines and plenty of character and calories. I ordered wit' cheese wiz and onions, and it's a solid cheesesteak. But it's not the best one.
The best cheesesteak among the trip of Geno's, Jim's and Pat's is Pat's King of Steaks, easily. Not even close.
Located directly across the street from Geno's around 9th and Passyunk in South Philly, Pat's was the place that was made famous by the movie Rocky. The meat is better, and sliced differently.
You are not going to go wrong with any of these three, but to rank ...
Now, if you can't make it to any of these three, a street vendor selling a cheesesteak in this city is just as good ... if not better.
