    Neither they are both just tourist traps now. Try Johns Roast pork ; they even won a James Beard award for their cheese steaks.

    i must be the oddball from philly i don't like either plus Pam makes a better steak sandwich with her eyes closed imho she uses fresh sliced steak meat  . over rated tourist attraction not like it was years ago

    Well. Verdict is in. I had both and have to say pat's steaks are better. Wiz wit!
    Tony Luke's was out of the question since they close early. At least now I can say I had pats and geno's. one of those things you have to check off the list.
