    Sorry brah, nothing against you; you're a good guy.

    As a Washington sports fan, I have expanded my hatred for all Philly teams to Philly in general.

    The best cheese steak in the DC Metro area would be Al's Steak Shop. Oh yeah, don't forget to add fried eggs.
    Will try. Thank you.

    Forget Pat's and Geno's. They're okay but not even close to the best. Geno's doesn't chop the meat, which is a bit tough, but I like it better than Pat's. Also, forget the cheese whiz unless you really like it. It's tradition but IMO not the best tasting cheese (is it even a cheese?).

    John's Roast Pork is terrific but has weird hours. Jim's on South Street is very good. Avoid the whiz and go with American or provolone. Steve's Prince of Steaks has several locations, none near Center City. Great steak sandwiches.

    I was at Tony Lukes on Saturday. Only one of us got a cheese steak (very good) as their best sandwiches are roast pork, broccoli rabe and sharp provolone.

    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[​IMG] I'd put it in my Top-10 Sandwiches of All Time....[​IMG]

    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.
