In my City of Fountains post, I mentioned how Arthur Bryant's BBQ in Kansas City reminded me of Geno's Steaks in Philadelphia; so for today's Tuesday Travel, we are going to have an authentic Philly cheesesteak experience ;)

Summer 2010

The cheesesteak is a signature dish of the city of Philadelphia.  A very popular Philadelphia restaurant specializing in cheesesteaks is Geno's Steaks.  Geno's was awarded Best of Philly for Best Takeout by Philadelphia Magazine in 2000.

Feeling celebrity !

The walls, roof and interior of Geno's are decorated with memorabilia and hundreds of autographed and framed photos of celebrities who have eaten there.  Among those celebs are Nicholas Cage, Oprah Winfrey, Sylvester Stallone and Shaquille O'Neal.

Look at that line !

There is no indoor dining but there are tables under canopies on the sidewalk for those who wish to enjoy sandwiches on the premises.

One thing I remember in my Geno's experience is that when I wanted to get some relish, the condiments counter outside was almost empty.  With the bulk of people lining up there, it would not be unexpected if the counter would ran out of stock very quickly; hence, if I may suggest, the Geno's staff should be more prompt in refilling/restocking that.  Anyway, it was all good.  The absence of ketchup did not hinder me from devouring my first ever authentic Philly cheesesteak ;)

  5. Hello.
    I used to live in Philadelphia, so I'm very well aware of Genos & of course I have had my fair share of cheesesteaks (smile). Philadelphia is also known as the City Of Brotherly Love & was also the location for one of the "Rocky" movies.
    Nice photos.
    Thanks for sharing.
