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.

    Alaska has zero food like this. Makes traveling down South more worthwhile though, always on the lookout for great places to eat!

    Pat's sucks. For the price none are worth a hill beans. Look, this is a cheap sandwich. Don't pay ten bucks for what should be 5 or 6 max. Hell, Wawa is as good as any of these; especially Pat's and Geno's. They pray and feed upon tourists.

    As an ex cheesesteak shop owner i can tell you the secret to a great cheesesteak “MADE TO ORDER FRESHNESS “ also don’t drop a ton of cold meat onto a hot grill because all that cold steak lowers the temperature of the grill and then the steak doesn’t sear it boils and loses all its flavor, so take it from a master,,,, order your steak fresh and not from “THE PILE”!!!!!

    They do it the same in Boston, the only difference is we don't do wizz. It's always American or provalone. We do rib eye, top round roast, and NY strip. The rolls are Italian rolls. Some with crust some with without crust.

    Philly native here. It's cool and hip to say that Pat's is a tourist trap.... They invented the cheese steak. I love Pat's. They don't chop it all the way down to little mush.

    When ppl at to much of an ingredient of anything that means it’s not so good. They trying to convince you with the portions. Don’t need a lot to taste good. I have thrown away full burritos, complete cheesesteaks bc they jut don’t taste good and they usually are the biggest ones. My favorite is jersey mikes chipotle cheesesteak with grilled sliced jalapeño.
