SO we were told to come here, theres a lot of competition on Philly cheese steaks I guess. We choice Pats.. and we were fuhfilled. My husband is super picky with eating and I eat whatever... You can choose anything you'd like basically for a philly cheese steak. We are glad we had a philly cheese steak from them!

FYI:They only accept cash. This place got some of the best around town cheese stakes you can buy. Even though it's a little smaller than most. But it's the taste that counts.

Delicious sandwich. We tried the cheese steak "wit" (onions) and cheese wiz. Don't knock it till you try it! Great sandwich on a cold, rainy day. Found seating on the block. Safe from the rain. Parking was tricky, found a spot a couple blocks away. I imagine it's crazy on a nice sunny day. We waited in line but it... More

Got the Wiz with fried onions from Geno's and Pat's. Liked Geno's, but Loved Pat's. Meat has a better season and rolls are much tastier at Pat's. Service was friendly at Pat's, and rude at Geno's. They are cash only so be prepared.

A long line, but with the order and serving system they have it went by fairly quickly. The cheese stakes were good, for some reason I thought they would be tastier, but they were OK. Pricey though, each one was $10 and fries and soda for two people ran up to $17, so $37 for 2 cheese steaks, 2 sodas,... More

While traveling we had a layover in Jersey for ten hours and decided to explore. We saw Pat's and Geno's on TV and decided to head to Philly. The Philly Cheese Steak was delicious and had tons of cheese AKA WIZZZZ lol. My stomach was tore up afterwards.

My family and I wanted to try the original Philly Cheesesteak, so we diced to make a stop at Pat's. The food was pretty good, but I recommend getting your cheesesteak with cheese whiz, because I tried it with the provolone and it was a little bland. The ordering process was very interesting: you wait in line for the first... More

We did the Travel Channel Food War of Pat's vs Gino's for Philly Cheesesteaks and Pat's won unanimously!! Pat's had a better roll and greasier steaks (more moist). Not the best cheesesteak we have ever had but definitely part of the quintessential Philly vacation experience. Also in an interesting neighborhood so good for kids to see.
