{philadelphia} is pat the king?

September 28, 2016


Now that I am in Philadelphia, the only appropriate fitting first post from here has to be about Philly Cheesesteaks! I’ve actually only been to one in my month here, so I have nothing to compare it to so far, but a friend and I took a trip to Pat’s King of Steaks. Unlike some other cheesesteak shops that have multiple locations, Pat’s only has one location in South Philly, right across the street from another famous cheesesteak shop called Geno’s, and Pat’s has been open since 1930!


As shown by this sign, there is a very specific way to order a cheesesteak. Don’t get it wrong, or the cashier is sure to look at you with contempt


The Pat’s counter – you can see on the photo wall on top many old pictures of Pat’s, including with many celebrities throughout the decades


“One wiz wit” – One cheesesteak with cheese whiz and with onions! Honestly, I’m not sure what I was expecting, but I was not blown away. There was definitely good greasy flavor, but to me, it just seems like a regular ole’ cheese steak. But maybe that’s the point!

Until next time,
