How to order a Philly Cheesesteak

On the way to our White Water Rafting trip (Monday’s blog post), we stopped in Philly to grab a bite of the world famous cheesesteak.  It was Pat’s verse Geno’s for the war of who had the original cheesesteak.  Our plan was to grab a cheesesteak from each place and decided which had the better bite.  It was an easy plan since both places were facing each other, across the street from one another.  But the lines where a mile long!  We started off with Pat’s, waiting in line, thinking we’ll be there for hours.  In no time, it was time to order.  You had to pay attention because there’s a certain way to order a Philly cheesesteak.  But don’t ask me, I was standing there, intimidated by the bossiness of the guy taking the orders- “Hurry up, NEXT!”  I looked like a straight up tourist, not to mention I was taking pictures of everything.  Amanda was my life saver because she did all the ordering (she’s from New York).  Once we had the steak, there was no place to sit.  So, we shared our steak standing up, but had to eat it fast since it was burning our hands.  I wish someone could have video taped us because it looked like we never had a meal in our lives, from the way we were eating.  Then off to steak #2 at Geno’s.  Geno’s was a little bit nicer, when it came to ordering (but that’s not saying much).  All and all, both steaks were completely different and I’m glad we tried both places out.  Out of the two, our favorite cheesesteak had to go to Pat’s King of Steaks.  Make a trip up to Philly because the battle of the cheesesteaks and the whole experience was worth it.
