Pat's Cheesesteaks - While Pat Olivieri definitely invented the steak sandwich in 1930, it’s less clear who made the first cheese steak. Cheese actually wasn’t added to the sandwich until years later. Some say that Pat’s neighbor and fierce rival, Geno’s Steaks, was actually the first to add cheese to their steak sandwiches when it opened in 1966.

Philadelphia, PA - Ask a group of Philadelphians where to get the best cheesesteak and you’ll be lucky if you get anything close to a consensus. Everyone’s got their own spot, and their own favorite combination of meat, cheese, and veggies. Pat’s King of Steaks has the distinction of being the original, and they’ve got the lexicon down to a science: order “with” for onions, and “Whiz” for the goopy orange cheese topping that many locals prefer.
