The hackneyed term, tourist trap, definitely does not apply to Pat's. Pat's is the original and still the best. Pat's uses the finest possible cut of beef for the price, grills it to sizzling perfection, shoves it into a mouthwatering roll, and tops it with tasty cheeses. Yeah, the store is run down and the servers are rude, but this is South Philly, after all. Pat's prices are no higher than the competition's. That makes Pat's steaks a bargain because they taste far better yet cost about the same. The fries are merely average in flavor quality. Pat's fish cakes are surprisingly delicious and fresh tasting, especially considering that they are frozen. You might also like the spicy roast pork and the Chicago-style hot dogs. As expected in this hood, sodas are way overpriced.
I'm not supposed to eat red meat so don't tell my girlfriend. After a Phils game, Jims. Whenever I'm on South Street, Jims. For the life of me I can't understand why people even COMPARE these steaks to Pat's or Gino's. Tourists and drunks: keep going to Pat's and Gino's we're better off w/ out you ruining an exquisite Philly Cheese Steak. Number one in Phila. Provolone Steak with onions and a can of coke. ALSO, Try Philly's second best: Larry's (especially if you like waiting in line). This is Philadelphia, that's what you do... you wait.
I've been going to Primo's since you opened on Welsh Road in northeast philly five years ago. I haven't been there for a while though and was glad to see that you have new items on the menu. I tried a meatball parm and was extremely satisfied. The roll was fresh and the meatballs just melted in my mouth; they weren't dry and they were very tasty. Do you make them yourself? They really taste homemade. I'll never get tired of your great sandwiches!
not exactly the best cheesesteak but was good staff was nice to me and the line was long couldn't believe how many people loved cheeseseaks fixed in front of you and the dinning is up stairs so be prepared to walk steps with food in hand. not alot of seats but over all experience ok. alot of faces of famous people on the wall if you have a philadelphia pass you get your beverage free.
I love Slacks! I'm in there 3 times a month. Everyone knows me, when I walk in. It feels so nice that the Hoagies,Wings,Cheesesteaks are SOooo good! And they make u feel important, as soon as I walk thru the door.Love Slacks!!
They have half-price foot long Italian hoagies on the first Tuesday of the month. I get cravings for Slack's Italian hoagies. I try to time these cravings to this schedule, but that doesn't usually happen. =P
This is a very busy place. Make sure you call ahead,have cash, and are not in a rush. The mushroom chicken cheesesteak and the pepper cheesesteak are my two favorites! They are so worth the wait and crowd. Yummm
They are way better then Genos even on their worst day.U mite have to wait around the corner n a line for a steak but its worth it trust me!!IM FROM PHILLY n its in the top 3 in cheesesteaks period.
Pats is ok but my real favorite is GENOS---yummmmm. It's worth waiting in line! (I've never even seen a line at Pats! Have you? I like it with red hot peppers and oodles of fried onions!
