Guess where I'm eating a Philly cheesesteak?

In Philadelphia, cheesesteaks are a cultural obsession -- but the sandwich infatuation stretches all across the nation, including Denver, where we have dozens of cheesesteak shacks, some of which do justice to the city where they originated and others that don't. This one falls somewhere in the middle of the pack, but it's a far cry from the best cheesesteak in town -- that nod goes to Large Marge's, in Wheat Ridge.

Can you guess where I'm eating?

I was born and raised in Philly. WARNING! If you go someplace and you see the combination of words: "Philly cheesesteak" what you're ordering is not authentic. Most places outside of Philly use roast beef of all things. Sacrilege! 

Going by the picture above, it looks like they use frozen Steak-Umms "meat". Low grade. The only reason why you'd smother a steak in CheezWiz is to cover the off-taste. 

The 3 icons in Philly, Pat's, Geno's and Jim's, are for tourists and drunks at 3am. You come to Philly, you go out of your way for a top grade steak like Steve's which uses Top Round and it melts in your mouth.

BTW, no one, I mean no one says "wit" or "wit out" in Philly. Well, maybe some toothless meth addicts in "Soufilly"... Enjoy your Steak-Umms.
