The restaurants included are John’s Roast Pork, Jim’s Steaks, Dalessandro’s, and Pat’s King of Steaks. After trying four different kinds, they announce their winning sandwich.

    Pats shouldnt be on the list!


    That cheese-wiz shit is disrespectful. Dalessandro's is king

    Edit: is funny how you can tell the difference between natives and permanent tourists. They eat because "of it's history" or because "it's more famous" 🤣

    Well darn pats king of steaks... your gonna have to up your game!!! That’s probably why they didn’t let you in they didn’t want you to see what they were really doin 😂 a lot of places have frozen steaks not fresh but hey any way my mouth melted for delassandros steaks because of the amount of meat and how it was chopped finely and melted together just right! I love they add sauces too!! And Jim’s steaks was y second pick johns was my 3rd and pats was my last I could just tell by looking at it!!! Thanks for doing this video! I am from NC and it’s so funny because we have so many places like pats that broadcast a Philly cheesesteak and it’s just a little bit of measly steak inside a lil bun or hoagie and some cheese .... I went to New York and visited back in 2008 and asked for a Philly cheesesteak and they were looking at me like I was crazy they said never call em Philly cheesesteaks it’s just a cheesesteak in Philly 😂 I was like well whatever 😂😂☝️☝️☝️☝️but I think the ultimate cheesesteak should be Meaty finely chopped with onions that burst in your mouth with a lot of melted cheese and of course some sauce!!! Hmmmmm yeaaaas now I’m hungry for a juicy cheesesteak!!!

    Good lord these two bugged me from beginning to end. I'd hope to get an opinion from a couple of chefs or some kind of beef experts over a couple of girls that didnt even know how to describe what they were eating. It seemed like I had to listen to a couple of kids explain why they like cheese pizza.

    Do most of these places not season the meat at all?
    With that much meat you would definitely need a good amount of salt at the very least.

    @1:36 *hint hint John* I hate when employees touch their sweaty forehead or anything else when preparing my food. People do it all the time, touch their cellphone, touch their hair, rub their nose, etc. HELLO! I'm putting this food in my mouth, not yours. I didn't used to be as OCD about it, but about 12 years ago I got food poisoning. That has to be one of the worst experiences of my life. Btw, I've had John's and it was pretty good 👍

    Great job Pat’s every place they went to was inviting fun and friendly but you started of on a negative tone and that reflected in your food. This video will be seen my millions of people and it wouldn’t have cost you a dime. Whether that’s good or bad hope your business gets exactly what it deserves and nothing more. Sad just sad.
