I went to Pat's. Thought it was great.

At Phils game either him or Geno's got a nephew or some other family member running the stand inside, though that one isn't as good. Get the crab fries inside stadium, those were damn good.

Pat's and Geno's are both pretty much considered tourist traps and not that great. I've never been to Jim's on South Street but most of my Philly friends say that's the best of the big cheesesteak places, and Tony Luke's is good too.

They don't all use cheez whiz.

I was down there last weekend and I have to say the food down there in general is great. Every little neighborhood bar seems to have excellent bar food. Went to two really good places for brunch. Place called Catahoula over in Queens Village, cajun creole, brunch specials plus a beer for 9 bucks. Then a place called Supper which was awesome. It's on South Street right across from Whole Foods. If you're going to a wedding chances are you're all set on brunch but if not those places were both solid. Also went to a pizza place called Stella - get the tartufo pizza. Comes with an egg on top and the server cracks the yolk and spreads it around. Sounds gross but it was one of the best pizzas I've ever had.
