The Best Philly Cheesesteak in Philly

Our time in Manhattan has ended, and we're now in Philly for the week. It might seem obvious to do a poll on the best cheesesteaks in town, but from what I can gather, while most out-of-towners go to Pat's and Geno's, there are much better offers in the city. So let's put it to the test: Are Pat's and Geno's overrated tourist traps? Reader j_ritting says that his favorite is Tony Luke's, while I've heard from others that Chink's is tops.


So vote below on your favorite, and feel free to comment on why. As always, if we forgot a place, do a write-in in the "Other" section, and add a comment as well. 

And stay tuned for one more Philly poll coming tomorrow.
