After we got all our sight seeing out of the way and built up hunger we went to the two most famous cheeseteak operations. After a few tweets from friends and followers we were recommended to the famous cheesteak rivalry, Pat's vs. Geno's. These two establishments are right across the street from each other and have had this history for years. Naturally, we had to get a cheesesteak from each and compare.
Ordering cheesesteaks, we found, was another language. "Yo! Whiz wit." means, "I'll have a cheesesteak with Cheese Whiz and onions please!" So we ordered one whiz, one prov (provolone), and both wit (onions).
