First visit to Philadelphia. Got to have a Cheese Steak. Had done some reading before hand. The famous battling "original" Gene's and Pat's -- but the locals apparently prefer Jim's. coming in for a landing I ask a local Philadelphian where to find the best Cheese steak and several pipe up "Jim's". Sherman set the GPS for Jim's on South street. South Street very cool area although parking I a lot cost me $10. I didn't care when was I next going to have a Cheese Steak in Philadelphia. As part of the reading I was somewhat prepared to order but I lined up at the wrong end. Slices of beef and stacks of onions on the grill. Handled deftly with a spatula cooked and dropped into a fresh bun. I asked for wiz and hot peppers. We actually shared two between four of us one with just beef the other with mushrooms. It was juicy and gooey and tender and delicious, nothing like the facsimiles I had on the west coast and never really liked. We ate upstairs at some spartan tables with a view over South Street and pictures of some celebrities on the wall who had dined at Jim's. Definitely worth the trip. Not sure I will find one of similar ilk outside of Philly.
