I've been to both Geno's Steaks and Pat's King of Steaks several times, and each time had a great experience. Though the locals have started to shun the corner of East Passyunk Avenue and South 9th Street due to the recent cult-like attraction, there's still nothing like the original(s).
On a recent business trip I learned that a few of my bro-workers hadn't been to eight P's or G's, so one evening we decided to remedy that situation.
