Although on a Sunday Morning at 9am most people are eating a typical breakfast, work brought me to Philly on the spur of the moment, and why not something different, cheesesteak! I was very pleased, yes it's $10 per, but for the experience and the...More

I've had cheesesteaks from the original Geno's in South Philly. They were very good and tasty. Well-made and delivered with passion. Philly cheesesteaks are a local tradition. However, the Geno's location in the Sugerhouse Casino is a mere shadow of the original location. Staff was...More

Not even close to the best cheese steak I've had. Disgusting low grade beef on a stale piece of bread with fake cheese. Not sure what the hype is about, I'd rather chew on a $2 steak than eat this garbage they pass off as...More

I really have no complaints about Geno's Steaks. Came here on a Friday evening. It was nice just to sit around with good steak sandwiches, cheese fries and good company. For me, it's all about the experience and Geno's provides a great experience even if...More

Quite average. Bread is basic, and it was a little light on meat. There better cheese steaks to be had in Philly.

we were family of 4, and 2 decided to go to the competition and we would be able to share and compare head on. We practiced our orders before actually going up to the window, made it short and concise. I enjoyed both, probably need...More

Let me start out by saying that neither of these establishments even comes close to Jim's on South Street at 4th. But in our visit to Philly, the Mrs and I had to take care of this bucket list scenario to decide which of these...More

Anyone know if the admission fee for adult & child includes the activities (melting crayon, create your own label, market, crayon etc)? Or estimate of what each activity costs would help. Thank you.
