What was the first thing I did upon arriving in Philly? Eat a famous Philly Cheesesteak, of course!  My friend took me to Jim’s Steaks on South Street, ensuring its authenticity. Though most tourists head to Pat’s King of Steaks or Geno’s Steaks for a cheesesteak, all the locals prefer Jim’s.

Jim’s is usually so busy that the line sometimes goes out of the shop and wraps around the block, but because 3 pm is not the most popular time to eat lunch we were able to get our food very quickly.

My friend ordered a cheesesteak hoagie wiz wit, which I found out, meant a cheesesteak with lettuce, tomato, cheese wiz, and onions. I was hesistant to order a sandwhich with cheese wiz, but decided to try it. I ordered a cheesesteak wiz wit with sweet peppers.

Though I’ve only ever had a cheesesteak from Jim’s and cannot vouch if it is truly better than the others, I can say that I was not disappointed. Though how can you really go wrong with a sandwich that’s filled with thinly sliced steak and loads of cheese wiz? Next stop, Wawa!

Happy eating!
