Philadelphia is famous for its cheesesteaks. I’ve tried cheesesteaks before but I thought since I was going to be in Philly, it was about time I tried the best. The problem is there is a big debate over which is the best Philly cheesesteak. Both Pat’s King of Steaks and Geno’s Steaks have very devout followings and their customers think they are the best Philly cheese steak shop. I decided to do a taste test to see who serves the best of Philly cheesesteaks. Welcome to the Two Traveling Texans Pat’s vs Geno’s cheesesteak taste-off!
How to Order Your Cheesesteak
First, you will need to decide what type of cheesesteak you would like to have. You can choose your cheese and also whether or not you want onions. We decided we should try onions on the cheesesteak. For cheese, it was a tougher decision but we chose cheese whiz, a processed American cheese spread. If you prefer, you could also have regular American cheese or provolone. They also make cheesesteaks without cheese, but is that really a cheesesteak?
Ok, so now you know what you want to order. From what I read, I thought they were very particular about how you order your cheesesteak. You are supposed to say which cheese you want and then if you want your cheesesteak “wit or witout” onions. So I think I should have said, “I want a cheesesteak whiz wit.” I was worried I would get yelled at for not ordering it correctly. Lucky for me, that didn’t happen and I still got my cheesesteaks even though I don’t think I ordered the ‘right way’! (more…)
