The sandwiches were great and we took them to the car to eat. They run like a well oiled machine. Be ready to order , pay and scoot. There were some strange people just hanging around and talking to invisible people. Probably nothing management can...More

It was my first time in Philly for a business trip and my husband said I had to try Pat's- so I did. I'm from S. FL, so the best cheesesteak from home is from Jersey Mikes. I think that was better than Pats. Now...More

So you can't go to Philly and not have a cheesesteak. I had the cheesesteak with whiz and it was fabulous. Wish I could have eaten more.

Maybe I've outgrown the delight in cheesesteaks that I had in my younger years or maybe the greasy pile of chopped gray looking meat served on a cold roll was just not good. We waited for about 20 minutes in line to get a Pat's...More

Don't know what the hype is about. Chopped steakums with cheese on a soggy hoagie roll. There was no flavor. Cost $11. Spent almost $10 on fries and a lemonade. Would not go again.

We stopped to try the famous Philly cheese steak and I have to say I was really disappointed. Seemed pretty generic to me. I've definitely had better elsewhere. But the experience was fun! I felt super stressed while ordering as it seemed there was a...More

Pat's is Pat's. It's cheesesteak. It's all about the experience. I stopped on my way to my hotel from the airport. I couldn't visit Philly without stopping for a cheesesteak & fries. The "boys" were great, up to form, which is part of the whole...More
