Pat's King of Steaks

Pat's King of Steaks Review

New cheesesteak restaurants come and go all the time, but two of the oldest—Pat's and Geno's, at the corner of 9th and Passyunk—have a longstanding feud worth weighing in on. It comes down to a matter of taste. Both serve equally generous portions of rib-eye steak, grilled onions, and melted Provolone, American, or Cheese Whiz on freshly baked Italian rolls. The main differences as far as we can tell: Pat's claims to have invented the cheesesteak; Pat's meat is chopped; and Pat's exterior is more, ahem, understated than Geno's neon extravaganza.
