The Great Cheesesteak Debate The Great Cheesesteak debate. (Things to do in Philly)

In a city that comes together on behalf of their local sports teams, and a common hatred of the Dallas Cowboys, there is one thing that can divide The City of Brotherly Love — the debate about who has the best Philly cheesesteak.

 

 

The Philly Cheesesteak is an American icon, with people coming from all over the globe to get their hands on one of these crisp rolls filled with thinly sliced ribeye beef and melted cheese (cheese whiz, American or provolone are the traditional choices) and topped with fried onions, sautéed mushrooms, ketchup and peppers (hot or sweet.)

But where do you go for the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia? Here is a helpful guide to some of the best locations… but ultimately, your taste buds will be the decision-makers.

Pat’s King of Steaks

Credited as the founder of the Philly cheesesteak in 1930, Pat’s has grown from a little stand on the south end of the Italian Market to one of the most famous cheesesteak locations in the world. Located at 9th St & Passyunk Ave, this Philly staple has its grills burning 24-hours a day, 7 days a week, allowing you to enjoy a cheesesteak anytime the mood strikes.

Geno’s Steaks

Located directly across from Pat’s at the south end of the Italian Market, Geno’s has gone roll-for-roll with Pat’s for well over four decades. The owner, Joey Vento, has claimed it was him, not Pat, that invented the original cheesesteak. Open 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, you have the ability to make your own decision on which location has the better cheesesteak.

Campo’s Deli

Located at 214 Market St, Campo’s has been slinging cheesesteaks for almost 60 years. Only blocks from popular tourist locations such as the Liberty Bell and the Independence Visitor Center, Campo’s has built a reputation on providing delicious cheesesteaks to the inhabitants and visitors of the city.

McNally’s Tavern

This hidden gem, and one of the friendliest bars in Philly, is located in the middle of historic Chestnut Hill at 8634 Germantown Ave. Not exactly known for its traditional Cheesesteak sandwich, they have a delectable variation called The Schmitter which features traditional steak, onions, melted cheese with the added twist of grilled salami, tomatoes and a special sauce on a Kaiser roll. While not necessarily a traditional cheesesteak sandwich, this is one place that needs to be added to your Philly food bucket list.

John’s Roast Pork

A longtime favorite of Philadelphia dock workers and contractors, John’s has recently gained recognition as one of the best cheesesteaks in the area. Located at 14 E Snyder Ave in South Philly, John’s beef is seasoned and grilled to perfection. The cheese and onions are folded into the meat while still on the grill, giving the end result a flavorful and cheesier sandwich. Unlike other locations on this list, John’s Roast Pork shuts down their grills at 2:30pm, so get there early!

Tony Luke’s

A Philadelphia institution located at 39 E Oregon Ave in South Philly, Tony Luke’s boasts one of the best cheesesteaks in the city. While there is no inside – order and pick up from street side windows and grab a seat at the outdoor picnic tables, there is literally no downside. AS good as the sandwich is, don’t be offended if the staff seem a little less than nice, they take pride in giving both regulars and newbies a hard time. It’s all part of their charm.

While the debate for the best cheesesteak in Philly will rage on for generations to come, you can experience the best of the best during your stay.

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!

My company had an international artist picked up at JFK and dropped off in Philadelphia, and the artist had the best time. The driver kept in touch with me throughout the day, so we could plan for arrival, and our artist had the most wonderful experience with the driver. That’s really astounding considering our artist had just gotten off a red-eye from across the world. Thank you so very much!
