I'm not a big fan of Steve's, Geno's or Pat's. I like the steak chopped and mutilated and mixed with melted American or provolone cheese, like at Jim's and Jim's sells beer too, which is a MUST!
The last time I ate at Pat's the meat was grey in color and so gristly I couldn't saw through it with my choppers. Same with Steve's. I took a chomp and the slab pulled right out and burned the sh*t out of my chin. Geno's is like eating a jerked, dried pig's ear.
I enjoy Luke's but they lay the meat flat like a Steak Umm and it doesn't have enough body to it. I have to order "double-meat" and then it's like an $11 sandwich. Keep your onions & whiz off of it too. I like mushrooms if they have swiss cheese but if not, just plain steak, provolone cheese & ketchup is the way to go for me. If I go to a run-of-the-mill pizza joint I know it's gonna be dry pressed chuck so I get mozzarella, mushrooms and pepperoni to add some moisture to it. Otherwise, it's like eating a mechanic's rag on a roll.
