People in Philly think that Cheesesteaks are a religious experience, not a sandwich. They put their Mummers Costumes on and gather in cult meetings during a full moon to worship all things Cheesesteak!

    Just did a comparison with my Daughter at Pat's and Geno's. Split a Wiz wit at both places....Geno's was the winner!

      It is the two slices of bread thing. Peanut butter and jelly. BLT. Bologna, lettuce and mayonnaise. These are sandwiches. Three slices of bread as in a "Club" is also a sandwich. I haven't decided whether something in pita is a sandwich. Probably not.

      It is not just a Philadelphia thing, though that always works in my favor. Even when I lived in Stevens Point, Wisconsin I did not consider a hot dog or a hamburger to be a sandwich.

      One final Philadelphia thing. Please do not use hoagie and sub in the same sentence.

        Holly,

        You're right about the hoagie/sub thing. It should never be called a hoagie. It is a sub So by your definition nothing on a round roll, or any kind of roll for that matter, would be a sandwich. Sandwiches would only be made with sliced bread. While I respect your opinion I can't agree with it. To me if it's on a bread or roll it makes no difference. It is still a sandwich.

        Go Giants!!!

          You should have hit up Steve's Prince of Steaks or Chinks

                Uh, no. We don't. And I truly hope your emoticons mean you're kidding.

                Stereotyping is so wrong and so insulting...

                      I was in Philly last week while visiting a buddy of mine in Baltimore, MD and the reason no one mention's Geno's is because it kind of sucks.

                      It is caddy-corner to Pat's, so what I did is ordered one from Pat's earlier in the day, and then after taking the mandatory picture with the Rocky statue, a scoop of ice cream at Bassett's in the Reading Terminal Market and a little sight-seeing in the area, we headed back to Geno's to try one of theirs.

                      What you are going to find out as I did, (and was told to me by someone), is that Pat's puts way more meat in their cheesesteak than Geno does. The fries are WAY better at Pat's too. One other thing I should mention is that YOU HAVE TO GET IT "WIT WHIZ". ANY OTHER WAY AND YOU WILL GET A DRY SAMMICH.

                      My wife made the mistake of getting hers with provolone, and it was like eating a sammich at the beach when sand gets in it.

                        Darling, I'm way tougher than you think, as you already think I'm thin-skinned - another assumption made on your part. I don't believe that "The Whole country has become so PC" - and I'm sorry that it makes you sick! Get over it and take a Tums! Or, better yet, since I cannot hear the tone of your voice on the internet, please say that it's meant to be tongue-in-cheek! We don't automatically "get" your "sense of humor"! Ours is different here in the land of the Mummers!

                        OK? Take care, now!

                          A Whiz Wit may indeed be a cult-worthy. I'll take the cheesesteak juices - a blend of grease from the grill, the steak, and the fried onions paired with melting cheez whiz - over grape Kool Aid any ol' time.

                            I find both Pat's and Genos to be for tourists, and that both places are cruising on reputation. I agree with those who favor steve's or Chinks. also, Olivieris in Reading terminal market. as a side note, I like the overall quality in the market. I feel that the level of competition is so high that bad product can't survive there, at least not for long
