Pat's in south Philly is the best. But you probably won't have a bad cheesesteak anywhere in Philly - they just know how to make them there. The Reading terminal (farmer's market)is a half block from the convention center, you can get excellent cheesesteaks and hoagies...as well as anything else, baked goods, etc.
There is an excellent Italian restaurant across the street from the Reading terminal (Maggione's)...and on Market Street (one block away)is the Hard Rock Cafe. Going in the other direction from the convention center (northeast) is Chinatown... excellent Chinese food.
You won't go hungry in Philadelphia.
You must go to Pats. They have the best cheesesteaks in Philly. I'm looking forward to the Philly show too. I get to see my parents, go to the show, and I won't have to spend a dime for accommodations!
Now my mouth is beginning to water. Philly is still more than a month away, what am I going to do? Next week we are going to West Virginia to go 4-wheelin, what do they eat in W.V. ?
Now, I have heard a lot of nasty stories about road kill and stuff, but I’m sure those are all just rumors. After all people in W.V. are people too!
And while we’re on the subject, what do people frame in W.V.?
I can feel it now as I am writing this post, we're going to get off the subject of cheese steaks and into a politically incorrect area again. Then the moderator will have to move my cheese steak inquiry to the warped forum.
shall be in Philly for a friends art show, it will be her MFA thesis. It is saturday night, so I am hoping to go to the show Saturday and Sunday. I don't eat meat, don't know cheese steaks sorry. Can't wait to see you all there.
Is this thread about best Phily Steak in town?
If so, take my honest contribution to the topic: I have no idea where best Phily Stake may be eaten in town and feel very sorry about my ignorance (inaptitude). In return I do know where world second to Louvre largest collection of Brancusi sculptures can be admired. In same town whith Pat's and Maggione's that is...
