For many in Philadelphia, Geno’s is the only place worth considering if you’re talking “the very best” in Philly cheesestakes. Pat’s has equally loyal customers, though, so if you’re in Philly you’ll want to try both and decide for yourself who’s got the edge in this eternal cheesesteak war.

    Is that Philly? This is great Gordon. You need to do a painting of this one.

  • Thanks, flyrod…yes, it’s Philly. I used to live near Philly but am now in Arizona. I miss Philly cheesesteaks, but not the winter weather. Thanks for commenting:)
