Just wondering what the average cost is for a philly cheesesteak for Jims, Genos, or Pats?

I was at Jim's a few weeks ago and I believe it was $6 and change - maybe 6.50. I think that is pretty average. I seriously only eat these about 2-3 a year, they are terrific and tasty, but they are super-fattening. It was well worth my money, though!

If you have to ask, you don't really want one :)

Forget the price, the real question to WHIZ or not to WHIZ! That will get you many replies.

$5.50 to $6.50 sounds right. Just be sure (especially if at Pat or Geno's) that you know how to order: 1 Whiz Wit 1without LOL

Don't forget what many natives consider the truly best cheesesteak...Daleassandro's (sp?) and it's only about $4.50 I think. (Roxborough)

The last time I was at Geno's a few weeks ago, my whiz wit was, I think, around $7.00. Give or take some change, this is probably what it will run you.

SharBev,

Funny, in all my ## years, I never made it to D'Allesandro's, and now I'm a vegetarian, so I won't be going...

Being originally from Roxborough(Roxber), I was not going to mention D'Alesandro's. LOLOLOL Actually, it has changed hands and the original family no longer owns it. It is owned and operated by a lovely family from Ireland. LOLOLOL

Good thing I had to walk up the hills of Manayunk to come home from grade school, because I learned early on how to walk off a cheesesteak.

Another local Philly favorite....tomatoe pie....still trying to think of the name of the little family place on Umbria Street in Manayunk.

As for me, witout whiz! Have lived here all my life and never could get into orange cheese.
