We went to Philadelphia, after our business trip to Atlantic City, solely for the purpose of saying we ate a cheesesteak in Philly. We looked at all the reviews and decided against going to the "original" cheesesteak restaurants of Geno's and Pat's because they sounded touristy and soup natzi-ish. We made the right choice! The entire staff was very welcoming and friendly (as opposed to the reported rudeness of staff at the aforesaid locations). Not a tourist in sight as they would never find it unless they were looking for it. We were lucky enough to get there when there wasn't a line and we had ample street parking available. We decided to get the pork sandwich as well since it also got good reviews. It was good but we preferred the Philly Cheesesteak. We got it "wit" provolone and onions, and despite what we read about the proper way to order, we found no difficulty being understood or berated for doing it wrong. If you are looking for a great sandwich where the locals eat this is the place for you!
