Matador Network: 10 ICONIC AMERICAN FOODS AND THE PLACES THAT MADE THEM FAMOUS

Geno's cheesesteak

What’s not to love about a long roll filled with diced steak and onions and topped with cheese? The sandwich’s thinly sliced ribeye isn’t topped with any old cheese, though. You usually have your choice of Cheese Whiz, American cheese or provolone. Perhaps the most famous rival Philly cheesesteak shops are located in the Italian Market district of South Philadelphia: Pat’s King of Steaks (order the Whiz Wit – a steak sandwich with Cheese Whiz and diced onions) and Geno’s Steaks. Sample one of each and you be the judge as to who truly deserves the title of “Inventor of the Philly cheesesteak.”
