Cheesesteak battle winner.. from New York? Say it isn't so!

Ok, I have to preface what I’m about to say with a very heart Italian “With all due respect” (that generally is spoken just prior to some negative and/or derogatory statement


So here goes:

With all due respect, Philly Cheese steak creators, what the H-E double hockey-sticks happened for us to be out cooked by some Johnny Come Lately New-Yorker?

Rick Oliveri…(Pat’s Steaks!) Bacon and blue cheese on a cheesesteak? I’m pulling your South Philly card for that one!

As the home of the original Cheese steak, you should know better

Can I have your thoughts on this? Are you as disappointed as I am?

  1. actually the winner was from Atlantic City NJ Tony Baloneys so at least Philly didn't get beaten out by New York! Since the winner was chosen by people who tasted the steaks, so it all sounds fair and square...
