I liked the sandwich but I prefer Pat's as I am more for the little crushed up bits of rib eye instead of the large slices. Regardless, nice meal and I would advise anyone to visit them both. For comparison, at least.

Had a delicious cheesesteak at Geno's, and their cheese fries are to die for! There was a long line, but they keep it moving quickly. Be sure to order like a real local! Wish we had sandwiches this good on the west coast!

Though this is a touristy place it is well worth a visit, it was recommended to us and I enjoyed every bite of the Philly Cheesesteak and every chip. My best friend didn't enjoy his, so it depends on your taste.

Geno's Steaks at the Philly airport,....wonderful and a fitting goodby to Philly. Philly does have very good food, we experienced what we could, and Geno's at the airport is a must, if connecting a flight, or getting that ' On More Philly Cheesesteak, ( with cheese wiz ), Geno's is the place.

My husband loves cheesesteaks so on our visit to philly geno's was high on the list. I really liked the fries but the cheesesteak was disappointing no amount of ketchup could improve the insipid meat. At least no one can tell me now is a must stop

I ordered a Cheesesteak Hoagie with sweet peppers, american & provolone cheese, and fried onions. The bread was soft but it was tough like it had been microwaved because it was hard to chew. The meat was extremely tough and flavorless. I tried to tell my brother to go to Ishkabibbles but he insisted on going to Geno's Steaks. When... More

We visited on a Friday around 3p for a late lunch. Line was about 30 deep and we thought about leaving, expecting a long wait. Amazing....wait was less than 5 minutes! Order sandwich and pay at 1 window, go to next window to order drink & fries and pay again. It was pricey for what you get. 30ish dollars for... More

So today my SO and I tried Gens's for the first time to test it against Pat's. We had the cheesesteak with cheddar and the cheese fries. The cheese fries were excellent!! And the cheese on the sandwich was better than Pat's and the sandwich a little bigger. The staff was prompt and polite and the experience of standing in... More
