Philadelphia, PA - Ask a group of Philadelphians where to get the best cheesesteak and you’ll be lucky if you get anything close to a consensus. Everyone’s got their own spot, and their own favorite combination of meat, cheese, and veggies. Pat’s King of Steaks has the distinction of being the original, and they’ve got the lexicon down to a science: order “with” for onions, and “Whiz” for the goopy orange cheese topping that many locals prefer.
