With a lot of good cheese steak spots in philly you have to go to pats. They are really good and a historic spot in Philly. They have good food and quick to serve.

The "ONLY" thing this place has that other stake joints don't have is Cheese Wiz! They have a good name and a fabulous business. But try John's Roast Pork at front and Snyder for a culinary trip!

the food is great, service is quick even though sometimes the line is extremely long, that just attests to the fact that their steaks are wonderful...

If there is anything that represents Philadelphia's workers perspective it is to debate cheesesteak places to eat which always means - what is better - Geno's or Pat's? Today we are going to give the pro's and con's of Pats on Passyunk (which sits across...More
