Skip both of them and just go to Reading Terminal and get a hot roast beef sandwich from DiNic's.

I think Steve's Prince of Steaks are underrated and so is Chinks. Jim's is very good as well.

You're right, basically they are open for lunch M-F and are too off the beaten path for tourists. Still, nothing quite compares with sitting outside eating with the railroad tracks on one side and the chemical plant on the other.

Wiz wit. As long as it's got a proper Amoroso's roll, I don't care so much where it's from.

I agree that wiz is pretty disgusting in all other circumstances, but I want it on my cheesesteak. I am annoyed by the number of places around here that don't offer wiz.

This. I am from South Jersey, have lived in Philly the past 4 years, and have been going to Chinks literally since I was born. There is nothing like leaving there with your clothes reeking of cheesesteak. Gino's and Pat's have become tourist traps. And I don't like how they don't melt the cheese. Tony Luke's has moved into grocery-store--brand, frozen, boxed, steak-um like things. Jims is good too.

DiNic's, now you're talking. I like(d) their roast pork w/ roasted green peppers & aged provolone I'd put it in my Top-10 Sandwiches of All Time....

Haha, yea the owner, used to be called a "chink" when he was a child in his neighborhood, due to the fact that he looked Asian.

I'd go to Delassandro's in Roxborough if I wanted a good cheesesteak. Most of the "big name" places suck.

Yet another vote for D'alessandro's in Roxborough. Jim's is also good, but D'alessandro's was the best in my (admittedly relatively limited) experience. Pat's and Geno's were absolutely tourist traps.

Tony Luke's for the roast pork with greens and sharp provolone.

Two years ago I had a cheesesteak at Pat's or Geno's (don't remember which one -- it had a bunch of anti-Mumia stuff on the walls) and was underwhelmed. It was good, but not the religious experience I was expecting. I freely admit I like my cheesesteaks with a bunch of stuff (lettuce, tomatoes, mushrooms, green peppers) that would make a purist scoff.

Dalassandro's was sold and isn't so great anymore. Other than Geno's and Pat's, neither of which "suck" but are at least average, what are the "big name" places? Jim's? Steve's? Tony Luke's? They're all pretty good.

From a tourist's perspective (been to Philly like 4 times) and I find myself constantly eating when I visit, I slightly prefer Geno's over Pat's. I can see how locals or those who frequent the Big 2 places find them a bit overrated. But when you live in the midwest and all you have are mall eatery cheese steaks, there's nothing like a visit to Philly. Hell, I once got a cheese steak at a gas station in Philly and it was fantastic...it really is all about the hoagie roll.

Last visit, I ate 2 Geno's and 1 Pat's in a sitting, and if I had to cast a vote, it would be for Geno's. Also, the last time I had Jim's, I found it way too dry. I've never tried Tony Luke's.

On a different note, Lorenzo and Sons pizza is hands down my favorite pie of all time.
