Cheesesteaks at Pat’s King of Steaks

On a recent visit to Philadelphia, my sister and I originally resolved to sample the cheesesteaks offered by Pat’s and Geno’s, which have been locked in a long-running rivalry for the title of best Philly cheesesteak, and in our minds and taste buds put the competition to an end once and for all. However, we ultimately decided not to go to Geno’s due to reports of racist graffiti decorating the place.

So off to Pat’s we went.

There was an almighty line when we got there, but apparently, they shot out the sandwiches so fast we got our cheesesteaks a mere few seconds after paying. We ordered cheesesteaks with onions and slathered in Cheez Whiz; the latter was quite a surprise, because we didn’t think the sandwich would work with Cheez Whiz.

I polished mine off very quickly. I did find my cheesesteak very tasty, but I have to admit that the meat wasn’t as flavorful as I would have liked it to be. I like it just fine, but I think I’ll try a bunch of other cheesesteaks to see how they all stack up.
