“Worth trying!”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I am a vegetarian normally but temporarily gave that up to try a cheesesteak from the world famous Pat's. It was worth it. They were very good and the experience of ordering it was fun as well. Definitely check it out next time you're in town!

“Best of the best”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

I know people will say it's touristy, but it really, really is fabulous. Fresh bread, cheez wiz, grilled steak. I love, love it! Employees are great and prices are cheap! Honestly, what could be more romantic than ordering, "One wit."

“Maybe I just don't get it”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

The whiz was good. The bread was good. The meat was meh, and the service was weird. The Philly accent escapes me and everyone looked at me like I was an idiot. Oh well. I say "meh"

Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Cheesesteak average. Agree with prior reviews---did not live up to the hype. Go elsewhere to spend your 9 dollars..

“A tourist trap - understand there are better places”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

It was just OK. A lot of build-up for what we got. Bread was great - steak was tough - really tough.
Lots of gristle to pull out of your teeth!
The experience was not worth the money for picnic table fare ($50 for 4 people)
