        1. Guys! Be nice!

          For tourists, I recommend Genos steaks in South Philly. Ask any cab driver and they will be able to take you there. Good steak sandwiches in a typical South Philly neighborhood, with definite atmosphere. Just order a "cheesesteak with whiz" and you will get the typical cheesesteak experience.

          Definitely call it a cheesesteak and not a steak and cheese sandwich. Enjoy!

          1. The best cheese steak in South Philly is at John's roast pork on snyder.

              John's has the best Philly pork and cheese sandwich too!!

                John's is great but closes at 2 or 3pm (on the other hand you can get a cheesesteak at 10 am). I think when you are saying "Luke's" you are referring to Tony Luke's - they are good.
