A weekend in Philadelphia (Philly), Pa was exactly what the doctor ordered.
Would I have picked a weekend in Philly? No!
Seriously, it was not my choice to go to Pa, but it did end up to be a good choice.
We arrived around noon time, so lunch was on our minds and not in our stomachs…So what would be the first food item you would want to eat in Philly, of course, the famous Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich…
Now how do you find a place that has the BEST Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich? Well, ask a Philadelphian and the answer would be GENO’S.
Geno’s has the best (like number 1) PCSS…so off we headed to get this infamous sandwich. The taxi drove us to South Philly.
Yes, we headed South!
When we arrived, we could not believe our eyes. People surrounded Geno’s like they were giving the sandwiches away. I was not happy, see I saw the seating arrangement that Geno’s had (outdoor seating), we wondered if this was really the place we wanted to eat anything let alone a PCSS.
We also did not want to sit in the hot sun, this was not exactly on the top of our list…at least not when it is over 85 degrees…it was so hot that day… we were melting just like the cheese on the sandwiches…Hot! Hot! Hot!
BobbiAnn, so cute, seating in the hot sun, better her than her husband Carmine. I even sat in the sun. Then I thought, these PCSS better be worth all the sacrificing I am doing…Hot sun, outdoor eating, people all over the place, just waiting to grab the next available picnic bench.
Not exactly my idea of a vacation lunch.
Hubby enjoying his French Fries. Billy you could have waiting to eat them at the picnic bench…My husband just loves his french fries, Oh, they are not listed as french fries, they have it listed as “FREEDOM FRIES”…glad to see they stayed committed.
Chowing down a Philly Steak was really interesting…when I sat down to eat I was not hungry…when I saw the size of the sandwich I thought, I will never finish this…with every bite that I took I became more and more committed to finishing this sandwich…we all did not speak…just ate, ate, ate….we ate as the cheese came oozing out, as the steak and the onions slowly squeezed together with every bite…OMG!!!
Yes, Geno’s does have a great Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich.
Did we think it should rate the number one status? Yes, we did…OK, we are New Yorkers and what measuring scale did we use to make this judgement call? None, no scale.
All I will say is,”If you want a #1 Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, you have to head to South Philly and check out Geno’s, they are truly number ONE!”
