The Penn's View Hotel's Guide to the Best Cheesesteaks in Philly

You can't travel to Philadelphia without sampling the cuisine. Remember, if you are in Philly, it's just a cheesesteak, not a Philly steak !

Remember to order with or without ( meaning with or without fried onions) & what cheese you prefer.

Example – “Can I getta provolone wit ? ” – translation
“May I have a cheesesteak with provolone cheese and fried onions ? ” FYI – At Geno’s & Pat’s you need to go to the next window ( to the left) to order drinks & fries .

In no particular order

Jim’s Steaks – 4th & South Sts  (Society Hill) Chopped-style steak on soft roll,  has a liquor license and indoor seating.

Geno’s Steaks – 9th & Passyunk Ave. (Italian Market/South Philly)
Whole-style steak on a crisper roll. Open 24hrs - outdoor seating.

Pat’s Steaks – Originator of the cheesesteak. (Directly across from Geno’s) Same style and hours as above

Cosmi’s – 8th & Dickinson (South Philly) Not far from Pat’s & Geno’s.  Great corner store cheesesteak place.  Family owned and operated for generations.  Award winning Hoagies. Our General Manager's favorite.

Sonny’s Famous * – (Old City) South side of Market between 2nd & 3rd .  Local cheesesteak-only place.  Great cheese fries.

Tony Luke’s – Front St.  & Oregon Ave (South Philly) – Great everything, cheesesteaks, roast beef Italian, chicken cutlets, and sausage, egg & peppers.

Revolution House * - 2nd & Market (Old City) - Twist on the traditional cheesteak, - uses tri-tip steak, 2 cheeses and uses their homemade bread. Great Pizza as well.
