With out a doubt, it's Jim's Steaks on south street for my first choice.
Jim's is pretty good. I think Pat's and Geno's are for tourists. The best I've found is D'Alessandro's on Henry Ave.

We had a scare here a couple weeks ago. Someone saw D'allessandro's closed with a sign in the window, and then a rumor started on PhillyBlog that they were out of business forever. But then they re-opened a few days later, so all is well again. Best cheesesteaks in the city--and I'm not just saying that because I live right up the street. Even my buddies down in South Philly (cheesesteak Mecca) agree with me!

Geno's and Pat's are for tourists but they're not bad. I prefer Geno's because I think their cheese is better plus they still use Amoroso's. I wished they'd chop the steak finer and actually cook the onions with the steak, but, you know...

Incidentally, I am: Provalone wit, shrooms

I know, I know, shrooms aren't 'authentic' but they're still a solid topping. At least I don't desecrate the thing by dumping ketchup all over it.

The best cheesesteak is the one out of the local neighborhood shop that you have the best memories from. Oh sure, it's always arguable that there are better quality steaks out there but that's not why you eat cheesesteaks.


Yuengling lager and some UTZ chips are the only possible companions.

Whatever you do, do not order a steak sandwich in the greater DC area - they put lettuce, tomato, and mayo on them!!!!

And I hate to quibble on the cheese (I too am from Philly) but it's gotta be either the whiz, or something else in liquidish form, not just melted on the bun.

Trap or not, I love Pat's steaks. I've had Geno's, and they just don't taste the same. I left Geno's hungry. I leave Pat's hungry for more steak, but not right that moment.

I was terribly disappointed when SWMBO didn't bring me home a sandwich from both Pat's and Gino's when she went to Philly last weekend.

"I was in south Philly on Saturday, I came home Monday night. You wanted me to keep two sloppy, soggy steak and cheese subs in my car for 3 days?"

"Uh, ya! With half a dozen of those hot peppers piled on top."
