  10. Jedsan G

    Smh best philly cheesteak is def from Subway homie keep it real

  11. Michael Stemle

    Not every cheesesteak sandwich needs a clever name. Dumb.

  12. Justin Janecka

    I really liked dolci carini. They fold the wiz right into the meat on the griddle. Was really suprized for a pizza place.

  13. J Rodriguez

    Scared to go to North Philly to Max’s?

  14. KrynTo

    Hell no. Wiz is terrible. Give me white American or provolone any day. And I’m sorry to say to all you Philly people that I’ve been to Philly double digit times and still have not had a better cheesesteak than I have had here in Rhode Island. Maybe I’m biased, but the majority of those sandwiches did not look good to me. Maybe I’ll catch a fellow Rhode Islander here who can back me up but the chances are slim 😂

  15. Greg Pennebaker

    Yo Dude, how can you taste test and rate Philly steaks without the peppers! It’s all about the individual shop’s roasted hot peppers, they are all different. You missed the key to all good steaks! Some shop’s peppers are so prized you have to request them from the secret supply behind the counter. I think you need a redo.

  16. tkotan

    Forget the wiz. Go white american cheese. Pennsylvania’s own Clearfield white american is a good choice.

  17. Elaine Smith

    we’re boos phillycheese steak

    RIP colon & digestion

  22. Shinobi Air Kixks

    I swear if he say Wiz again I’m gonna slap him. This guy sucks but the cheese steak look yummy

  23. John

    See how he immediately pointed out that the wiz is only on top of the Pat’s steak? Pro tip for Pat’s: order both cheese wiz (on top) and American cheese (on bottom). It’s only $0.50 extra.

  24. 350zWolf24

    I can probably eat three steaks be done for the day. Props to you man.

  25. sitnlow4life

  34. Tenzin Wangdu

    Take a shot every time he says “wiz”.

  35. Jonny God is awesome

    And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. And both Jesus was called, and his disciples to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him “they have no wine.” Jesus saith unto her “Woman what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come.” His mother saith unto the servants , “whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.” And there were set there 6 waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the jews, containing 2 or 3 firkins a piece. Jesus saith unto them, fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them to the brim. And he saith unto them “Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast.” And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was, but the servants which drew the water knew, the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him “every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine, and when men have well drunk then that which is worse. But thou hast kept the good wine until now.”
    This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory , and his disciples believed on him. After this he went down to capernaum, he and his mother, and his brethren and his disciples, and they continued there not many days. And the jews passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem and found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting. And when he had made a scorge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep and the oxen and poured out the changer’s money, and overthrew the tables, and said unto them that sold doves, “Take these things hence. Make not my father’s house an house of merchandise.” And the disciples remembered that it was written “the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up.” Then answered the jews and said unto him, “What sign shewest thou unto us, seeing that thou doest these things? Jesus answered and said unto them , “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the jews ‘forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days?” But he spake of the temple of his body. When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this unto them, and they believed the scripture, and the word which Jesus had said. Now, when he was in Jerusalem, at the passover, in the feast day, many believed in his name when they saw the miracles which he did. But Jesus did not commit himself to them, because he knew all men. And needed not that any should testify of man, for he knew what was in man.

  36. jaden peters

    I legit waited the whole time for Dalessandro’s and Steves prince of steaks

  37. P.S. Yes!

    Real cheesesteaks don’t have whiz on them, that’s gross.

  38. Malli Timms


  39. OSFreak

    dude make more why is there only 2 ffs im sad now

  40. Mike Davitt

    It’s all a personal preference thing but I prefer Genos but if you really want a great one make it yourself from scratch.

    1. Mike Davitt

      The roll is just as important as the steak and the cheese. I’m not a whiz fan on a sandwich but so what.

  41. Michael

    I’ve watched like 30 seconds and i’m already hungry

  42. D B

    Always a good laugh to hear that americans actually believe they have invented their own anything let alone cheese! So embarrassing.

  43. ArsenicDrone

    Watched 10 seconds, saw cheese wiz instead of provolone, thought about it for another 10 seconds, and then stopped watching. How can you trust a video when this choice is made?

  44. Tee

    Ofc the vegan one was surprisingly good. They have to smash so much flavour into it because there is no meet or actual cheese. But man. It looks juicy as heck Im hungry now. This is defo dinner at my house tonight 😂

  45. Stew Clark

    Maxs is the best

  46. Nik Oteen

    Philly native said stay away from pats and genos.

  47. Erin Johnson

    I love this guy.

  48. Scotty C

    How does someone who works for y’all think truffle oil is good?

  49. man wolf 79

    LOL I think the dog in the in background disagrees.

  50. BibleAsFireWood

    Steaks Unlimited in Seaside Heights, NJ is unbeatable.

  51. RMoribayashi

    Maybe I’m just old but I want to go back in time and stop cheese whiz from being invented. At least kill the first cook who put it on a cheesesteak. Provalone makes a cheesesteak a Philly cheesesteak, not some artificially flavored and colored goo unfit for human consumption.

  52. ilikeceral3

    Answer:all the cheesesteaks.

  57. yoeycrack1

    16 sandwiches 15 Minutes of my life gone little to no variation on everyone

  58. James Hurst

    Greatest sandwich in Phila wasn’t a cheesesteak but John’s Roast Pork. Went to Phila in June, ate 12 in 3 days and had a heart attack in July, no lie. But it wasn’t Phila alone obviously lol.
    Sonny’s was one of the best along with Chubby’s, Jim’s was mediocre and way too crowded.

  59. M A

    This guy sucks

  60. Tyler Russin

    I’d be grossed out. Even if he took like one bite each he ends up eating 3-4 hoagies in a day.

  61. Brincotin Records TV

    How do you go to Jim’s on south street and talk about the TLA, and not go across the street to Ishkabibble’s ?

  62. anummasa

    these food vids get worse suppose when u see them

  63. Mike Caesario

    Where can i apply for this job?

  64. Eratic_Bhavior

    Honestly any and possibly every cheese that is made with real dairy would be better than cheese wiz (fun video though)

  65. Ilana Signal

    Enjoyed this!

  66. GermthaVicious

    “The Bohemoth Steak”?you mean behemoth?

  67. Brian Pelrine

    You didn’t even go to Max’s? WTF???

  68. iGAkWarsman

    It’s not a cheese steak unless it has provolone cheese and pickled peppers

  69. Angela Barry

    Every true Philadelphia has their spots for cheesesteaks. Pats and Genos are tourist traps.

  70. NorX826

    Where my Philly people at? Tell me y’all know Frusco’s on Frankford, even though it’s gone now 🙁 that was always my favorite

  71. stifman28


  72. Kristen Kerwin

    Jimmy Gs on broad

  73. Dre Dashon

    The best cheese steaks are the ones from the papi store with provolone cheese

  74. venomkiler

    I dont know about yall but id prefer real cheese and some bell peppers in there, and well seasoned steak.

  75. Solemn Pharaoh

    Used to live right up the block from D’s. Man I miss it.

  76. Louis Lark

    Phenomenal cheese steak reviews, but a little bias. He should have included African- American steak shops.

  77. Frog Fur

    15 minutes of cheesesteaks and no Abners or spot burgers

  78. Frog Fur

    cant believe it

  79. Frog Fur

    you missed out on the best

  80. Josh Tongate

    “The commercial steak” Ouch xD

  81. xOriol

    Joder que caro para ser los más baratos del día 7,5$ cada uno, aquí en España por 7€ tienes un bocadillo como tu pierna de largo

  89. Natas Liah

  90. marcy devos

    no mayo????

  91. lbdeuce

    the names are dumb

  92. reyes torres

    Noone from Philly eats cheese wiz, you eat American or provolone!

  93. itsryface

    Nah, a cheesesteak should have provolone. Wiz makes it taste cheap in a bad way.

  94. Jessica Herzog

    getting slight Michael B Jordan vibes in the face

  95. Dem

    I was so sad the day I learned this is what food purists consider a “real” cheesesteak. 🙁
    I don’t hate cheese whiz but how can you put such cheap crap on good meat? And so much of it? It’s overwhelming. Call our version fake, but around here it’s made with a good cheese that’ll actually hold some form, usually provolone. I eat a cheesesteak for the meat, not to add texture to a mouthful of cheese flavored spread… yuck.

  96. Philadelphia Injury Lawyers

    cool 🙂

  97. Cannibal Gamer

    Anybody else like putting ketchup and mustard and maybe mayo on your Philly cheese steak?

  98. Keeno Brown

    I been to like all of these spots and my ranking 1. Dalessandro 2 Tony Luke’s 3. Pat’s. Also why this shows go to Maxx’s I guess to in the hood haha

  99. hamid segunmaru

    Can’t trust this man opinion since he didn’t go to Max’s

  100. defender 1235

    Dude that oasis and behemoth looked super good.

  101. joe yun

  102. ohdaUtube

    You missed out on Steve’s and Joe’s..

  103. Efeosa Iyalekhue

    Ishkibbles and Max’s didn’t make the list wow and you should of did the 100$ cheese steak

  104. Lisa Spikes

    Everyone has their own preferences. I say, eat what you like! I still enjoyed the video. Since I don’t live in Philadelphia, I’m not an expert, but I do end up there sometimes (my family is originally from there) and I may just try out some of these places.

  105. Jesús Carrión

    Can i use whiz cheese for my cheesesteak or i need melted veelvetta

  106. GeoGuy388

    Geno’s sucks. Their beef was indistinguishable from a steak-umm when I went.there.

  107. Cj Cooper

    Never been to any of these places go to Max’s

  108. KICKS

    i was waiting for dalessandros the whole video

  109. Carson is better than Dak

    What about Steve’s Prince of Steaks!!!

  110. Gi Han

    You sound like Bobby Flay

  111. drone 101

    He didn’t go to maxx

  112. Steve Blumenthal

    No love for Slack’s Hoagie Shack?

  113. Kylekyle32

    Michael’s all day

  114. T Styles 215

    Best spots in Philly are in the ghettos at the basic deli places for cheesesteaks.Anybody in Philly that’s from there and lived there knows this for a actual fact.

  115. dan fischer

    I’d probably bang your dad btw.

  116. gregorio almanza

    Yo the best is really the one pound cheese steak on Kensington ave in philly he missed acuple better ones that are a little more in the hood but Better steak!

  117. fruitlooprainbow

    Your name creation is such an artcraft; I’m truly envious.

  118. Jessica Robinson

    Grew up on tony Luke’s and never knew anything else until I moved back to pa

  119. Ragz Rocco

    Should change it up, dont get wiz on everyone, i love the provolone w/onions, the salt from provolone compliments the steak perfectly

  120. Rakael Boozierre

    Didn’t even go to Max’s???

  121. David Wadsworth

    Why can’t I have his job,where did I go wrong.

  122. David Wadsworth

    Jim’s .on South Street is my fav.

  123. Kiara Antoinette

    He is not interesting at all…

  124. grennysohail

    Bit the bullet, Gave it a try, Its fine that he isnt going to place it on the top, but I am glad that he took the risk and tried a vegan version of the iconic cheese-steak. And, coming from a guy craving for the pure, iconic, simple cheesesteak, to say that its actually good, showcases how good Wiz Kid is doing their take on the vegan cheese-steak. Cheers 🙂

  125. Lepe

  128. John Brocado

    oh i know whats the best one the first one before the video starts

  129. Aidan Martin

    Ayyy I like that vegan cheesesteak

  130. Jonathan Read

    Just came across this video and it was fantastic really warmed to the presenter and a real credit to the cheesesteak . keep up the good work guys

  131. cgraham6

    $7.50 apiece and those are the “cheapest cheesesteaks” they had, and it wasn’t even close? Man, I’m glad live in Ohio. That Philly food is about twice the price it would be here.

  132. Philly Mouse

    When I grew up as a kid in Philly during the 1970’s and 80’s, we did not put Cheez Wiz on a cheesesteak. It came with either American, Provolone or if it was a pizza steak, it was with mozzarella cheese.

  133. Joey C

    Damn ive been to most of these places its bringing back some nostalgia over the years

  134. Pauric Barton

    1. Dalessandro’s, 2. Steve’s, 3. Tony Luke’s

  135. J Philli

    Nah!!! Pat’s all the way! Only steak that will have you talk like Rocky Balboa right after you eat it. After moving out of the Philadelphia area I still say ‘wooter’ for H2O.

  136. Jon Dias

  137. Angus Schlievert

  146. No life grind

    Any of them are good

  147. Ray L

    How can you not go to Steve’s

  148. Eric L

    Jim’s for life

  149. Nomad -81-

    Mozzarella > Cheez whiz

  150. The Random Tube

    call me weird… but I only eat philly if there is real melt cheese and never touch it if it has cheese whiz

  151. Phenom

    That sarcones bread tho…

  152. Elton Joel

    Tony Luke’s are the best cheesesteak

  153. Celtic Dragon

    Why you went to Jim’s instead of Ishkabibble’s is beyond me! smh

  154. stan giles

    I love it , Philly hunter

  155. stan giles

    I love that they call can cheese , whiz . just so you know its not real cheese.

  156. stan giles

    I remember my first Cheese steak , 20 years ago . I had just arrived in Pennsylvania , was working , boss was getting food . I was expecting a stick of cheese , was very happy getting it with everything , and steak

  157. Bushfries

    the best cheesesteak comes from my BUTT!!!

  158. Melissa Marie

    i had a cheesesteak at the philly zoo and to my suprise it was pretty damn good

  159. Blag Cog

    This video concept should be great but instead the execution is just lackluster times 100.
    This should be a challenge not a ‘one bite and lets move on’

  160. Mills Skinner

    Never went to any good spots… Stayed in predominantly white neighborhoods. Plus nobody gets wiz in Philly.

  161. MIAPhilly

    Hit up toooooo many tourist traps. Might as well have hit Wawa while you were at it. I will give you mad props for eating so many in a day even if it was just half of each one. Got a few good jems in this video and it was shot beautifully. You were extremely clear with your reviews and I appreciate that. I wish you would have hit Steve’s or Max’s. Nive vid overall.

  162. NUMBER 1 KING

    Pats in my favorite spot in PHILLY

  163. Rachel Eid

    Did anyone notice that he didnt even try Tony Luke’s in the video? Why would he rate it first if he didnt even try it in the vid

  164. Philly Scorpio

    Everyone in Philly will tell you… Geno’s & Pats are overrated! If you don’t CHOP your meat up, then it’s NOT a cheesesteak! Then you have to have American Cheese! Then your cheese steak should be thick…not thin! Like Phillips, Geno’s & Pats

    & where’s your ketchup dude?

    How to order a cheese steak:
    Salt, Pepper, Ketchup, Mayo, Fried Onions, Fried Sweets, & pickels …with American Cheese. & it has to be chopped!

    Jim’s & Woodrow’s is probably the best on this list!

  165. Dee Moe

    Best Philly Cheesesteaks are in California at the CheeseSteak Shoppes. They bring Amoroso rolls from Philly, Have sweet and hot peppers from New Jersey, Sharp white american cheese and grilled onions.. Ive had several from Philly including Pats and Genos. The best are in California. Sorry….but its true. I think Philadelphia is taking their famous sandwich for granted. Cheese Whiz should NOT be on a cheesesteak. Cheese Whiz is a horrible NON FOOD product. The ONLY cheese on a cheesesteak is sharp white american. Perfect tang and meltiness.

  166. Tristan Bullock

    How the hell does Max’s not make the list? Guess he not equipped for North Philly

  167. Camille S.

    DALESSANDRO’S BABY!!!! That’s the best steak in Philly.

  168. Bryan McFarland

    Man…you didnt even go to Steve’s. The best in my opinion

  169. Tim

    Spot on analysis. Just make sure you go to the Oregon Avenue Tony Luke’s as he has franchised the name and the satellites don’t hold a candle to the original. Also, at Tony Luke’s AND John’s, the pork sandwich is way better than the cheesesteak. Not sure why the pork is not Philadelphia’s sandwich.

  170. Hello There

    When I was in LA, people would go into Subway for a sandwich, because a good deli is unheard of out there. When they ordered a meatball parm hero/sub/whatever you like to call it, they wanted lettuce and tomatoes on it. I wanted to throw up… So my question here is this… Are you not supposed to put ketchup on a cheese steak? I always did, but after seeing this I’m second guessing.

  171. ek 405

    God i’m starving and need to go to jims

  172. mensa517

    naw dude, Pat’s is for tourist while Geno’s is for residents —-Geno’s makes a better steak

  173. Josh P

    Why could I not have found this video BEFORE I just took a trip to Philly? LOL, I only ended up at one of those 16 places (Pat’s) and was a little disappointed.

  174. Robert Thorne

    Best job

  175. Enoch Combs

    Daleassandro’s are the tastiest…But there is a difference in price tho

  176. Tyrell Logan

    Max’s the 🐐

  177. slightlyjamaicanman

    Woodrows and Tony Lukes

  178. PuddingPiePup - Reborns and more

    I personally think Geno’s is the best but I order the more original not customized which I think makes it taste better.

  179. uchiha itachi

    Why didn’t you go to maxx’s cheese steak ?

  180. Khaalid idriys

    You stayed in South philly lol the tourist place

  181. Mr fashizleboy

    Best in all of Philly is MAMAS Pizza!

  182. Liberty City El

    I try to eat healthy, but man every time I see a Cheese steak shop, I simply cannot resist.

  183. Yusuke Sato

    You guys truly missed a huge part of the cheese stake experience which is the hot sauce.

  184. Erik Steve

    All I heard was wiz

  185. Mikeoloco

    I am so hungry now thanks

  186. borders27

    Penn Station…Cincinnati’s own, looks like it’ll give these a run for the money. I didn’t see one that looked better. I’m not a Wiz guy either plus add banana peppers and perfection.

  187. Sufyan Muhammad

    You didn’t even get to the good places 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

  188. Victor Brown

    You are super crazy! I would be in the emergency room by the fifth one.

  189. Alden Weaver

    Pats- Provolone with.

    1. Alden Weaver

      Wiz is fine but I prefer provolone. However, I cannot stand American Cheese.

  190. THICC BOY

    Upsets me you didn’t even go to George’s smh

  191. Thicc Nigga

    Upsets me you didn’t even go to George’s smh

  192. TyrionDies

    First time watching your videos. It took 4 mins to subscribe! Well done. If thereis room for a suggestion, perhaps you cold mention the prices for each one! It would be very helpful

  193. Charles Manning

    I’m surprised… not having peppers or mushrooms huh? 🙂

  194. Mr Gaskill

    Gotta try Rocco’s. It is stuck to the front of a Home Depot on Delaware Ave. Gotta respect a place like that

  195. J E

    He says Tony Luke’s can’t exist anywhere else but it exists all over the place in and around Philly. In fact, it’s in the Acme across from where I live and it’s awful.


    Fat boii

  197. mikooaxdcdz


  198. Akeem L

    Max’s was awesome to me

  199. Wally Nicholas

    Best cheese steak is Steve’s steaks on the Blvd you need to go there ASAP

  200. Wally Nicholas

    LAMO Tony lukes is the worst on the list 😂

  201. Ek shi

    Mom and pops stores that’s where you find the best food hands down.

  202. Michael Bates

    I loved this. Been to #11. Definitely a good place to stop after a show at the TLA

  203. Brandon Tomm

    I knew it would be Tony Luke’s. I went there before an appointment with a patient and stopped at the Original South Oregon Ave Tony Luke’s. It’s the best classic here hands down. But when you go to the hood in North Philly, there’s some bangin cheese steaks there too no doubt.

    I sincerely hope that when you say “whiz”, what you meant was “exquisite cheese sauce”. If you’re actually referring to that cancerous cheese adjacent goop in a can, I would sooner eat the prison system’s dreaded nutri-loaf😝 My lifelong dream of laying into an authentic Philly cheesesteak is officially dead⚰ Cheese whiz? REALLY??? SMH

  205. Sid Joyner

    I’m from Philly, Genos is definitely the commercial steak. But Ishkabibbles is the best

  206. erikgreeno

    Lots of steak lots of onion lots of khalifa

  207. thatjerseyb

    mama angelinas in center city is by far my favorite.


    max’s in philly

  209. Nick S

    I dont want any wiz on my philly…. But im down for that cheese doe!!!

  210. Laura Alejandra Manchola Rojas

    i read cheesecakes 🙁

  211. Kay Flip

    I prefer a corned beef reuben at Hershel’s in Reading Terminal to any of these.

  212. saul mitchwell

    Why the hell you didn’t go to Steve’s thanks Steve steaks was rewarded number one many times

  213. samuel lombardi

    How come Ishkabibble’s didn’t make this list? You get a cheesesteak from Ishkabibble’s and them jawns will have you live at 5.

  214. wiiztec

    $7.50 is the cheapest and it’s not even close? jesus christ how expensive were the others?

  215. hisphoneaccount

    You lucky son-of-a-gun!!!!!

  216. DCorganic

    what a cool gig. I’m available !

  217. DCorganic

    can’t believe there so many cheesteak joints in Philly but according to comments he didn’t even touch the best. wonder why Philly is known for cheese steak.

  218. tripeboi


  219. Samuel Luke

    New drinking game every time hes says wiz take a shot

  220. Rick Croom

    I’m pissed off. He didn’t go to Max’s

  221. tippy Dog

    Atlantic City bread is better than Philly bread! If you want a real cheese take go to the White House!


    Never get a cheesteak from a pizza place. You forgot Steve’s. I agree with you’re #1. I need to try Woodrows still.

  223. Communism is Death

    I eat my cheesesteak with provolone, onions, sweet pickle slices and ketchup.

  224. Jon Jackson

    should have compared price too. Bang for your buck cheese steak


    MAX’S .

  226. RyuTube YT

    Bro how’d you eat that many in 12 hours????? That’s like more than 1 every hour! Wtf! I eat two in 40 minutes and I’m feeling full. :O

  227. Justina Thornley

    im so glad u went to wiz kid! i wish you had gone to blackbird in south philly tho widely regarded as the BEST vegan cheesesteak

  228. Braeden YT

    I’m from phillie

  229. BloozeDaddy

    Gooey Louie’s are the size of a small child….but John’s was preferred for flavor when I lived there. One of the best I had was actually at Rocco’s…an unassuming place in the front of the Home Depot in South Philly on S. Columbus. NOM NOM !

  230. David Hegedus

    They make a video of what the best Phillys cheesesteak is, and they didn’t even go to Steve prince of steaks. Any one of my friends I took there say it’s the best cheesesteak they ever had.

  231. Danny fit

    Who would win?
    16 cheesesteaks or 1 chubby boi

  232. Kristine Rico

    I want more of these episodes. Burgers, ramen, pizza etc hahaha

  233. Kristine Rico

    I wonder where they put the rest of the cheesesteaks. Haha

  234. Andrew Smigaj

    This is so stupid. There is a rivalry amongst cheese steak houses about which cheese to use: provolone, american, cheese whiz, etc. These places specialize in different things. But he goes and gets them all with cheese whiz! It is totally unfair and rather stupid.


    Chez Wiz Oh My God Hell No,
    Mozzarella Cheese Or Provalone Cheese , Hell Even American Cheese Is Better

  236. Gomaco Pineapple

    I want to get paid for stuff like this

  237. Seth Brolsma

    The steak on the one from Tony Luke’s looks a little too light-skinned for me.

  238. Seth Brolsma

    Cheez whiz is fake, but it depends on what kind they use. It can be just a cheese spread — a bechamel flavored with cheddar cheese.

  239. Ragz Rocco

    Wiz is ok but nothin beats the south philly nice n salty provolone on mine, perfect combo

  240. StripperLicker

    “Wiz” is atrocious. Cheesesteaks need Provalone.
    I don’t care if it is “authentic” or not. Lot’s of original “authentic” recipes are substandard. They never get past regional popularity, which shows that _familiarity and conditioning_ is the real basis for the local popularity. That’s exactly why “wiz” is popular—Philly folk are used to it.

  241. doug marcus

    nothing from the grease trucks?

  242. JOHN G

    Faloons steaks and hogies
    Elmwood ave

    The best

  243. Brodie Smith

    When he said wiz all up in the steak I died sorry but that’s funny asf bruh but those look fire

  244. DRK0114

    I’m from Philly…Cheesesteaks with wiz are nasty bro. You need melted American or provolone cheese….newb

  245. T Hyslop

    16 in 12 hours nutz. How do you accurately judge this. Over two days better, three days ideal. After the fourth place I would wanna hurl.

  246. Amy Krum

    I live in Philadelphia and Tony Luke’s is my favorite too. Great choice!

  247. s1lverp3nguin

    damn you really skipped steve’s huh

  248. Angelique Jones


  249. otrwarrior

    Only 2 spots north of city hall??? C’mon man!!

  250. Arsenio Johnson

    I wanna do this!!!!!

  251. Victor Mar

    idk how I feel about the cheez wiz…is that how their supposed to be made? or is it just his own lil thing?

  252. Dakota Kidd

    how tf aren’t you full?

  253. succ man

    Bone app the teeth

  254. Sid Nayak

    1. Steve’s Prince of Steaks is my fav and top half of any top 16 Philly Cheesesteak ranking. 1. Whiz is not the definitive cheese selection. To me and others, it’s provolone. In any case, one of each would have been better to me.

  255. Michael La-anni

    He is gonna get fat

  256. Jet Met

    Best steak I’ve ever had was at Carmen’s in the Reading Terminal.

  257. R J

    I dont care for that processed cheese goo, but with provolone these are really good.

  258. AlTheRelic

    How long were you taking a massive Cheesesteak dump for after this tour?

  259. Charles Hall

    No to Whizz!

  260. miamiwax

    Truffle oil sounds like a good idea

  261. reefdollaz

    The way how you like your cheese steaks and who you think are the big dogs in my city just show’s you don’t know nothing about an authentic cheese steak Ock. Pats and Geno’s a definite no no matter a fact you went to not 1 place that sell a official cheese steak except Jims. You definitely showing you are more tourist than anything.

  262. Mike DiRado

    Do one with roast pork in philly.

  263. Gotterdamerung

    Mother of God, your poor colon. RIP

  264. Keith Van Brunt
