A fluff piece, but interesting in that there’s almost always a better alternative available than the 2 dueling places in each locale.
How did I know there would be cheesesteaks? And it would be Pat’s vs Geno’s . . . two of the worst cheesesteaks in the city and, if I’m not mistaken, the introducers of the godawful whiz on cheesteaks.
We’re not picking between Arthur Bryant and Gates. Not going there.
I appreciate you saying that. Everytime I see one prepared, I love what I see, until the cheezwhiz. I squirm.
Why would you do this to any decent meat? Even with real cheese, I like Chicago hot Italians the best. No cheese at all; but a sandwich I crave. Better no cheese than whiz. Still, I’d love one with provolone.
Yeah, the ones you see on national tv are Pats, Genos or at a stadium. The real neighborhood places assume American (which is a white cheddar here in Philly) and will happily sub provolone. I’ve even had a few with mozz, but agree provolone is best.
Oh, I love it when it’s stadium food. What?! The biggest ripoff food on earth is stadium food.
If I hit Philly, I’ll go to a small guy. Doesn’t look like either Pat, nor Geno, need my attention. The frickin’ “whiz” got my attention. Damn, I hate that stuff. Mozz, Muenster, Swiss, whatever, those are cheeses, not cheesewiz.
When I want to know the best place to go in Ypsilanti, Michigan, I’ll ask a person in Ypsilanti, Michigan; and I bet they’ll know where to go. This why I always stop in a pub of two when I arrive in a new town. By you a beer if you give me some tips. Then you’ll have two locals fighting it out in front of you over thee best _______in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Love that.
I think I’d put Kreuz and Smitty’s in Lockhart, TX on the list.
