Overpriced, long wait for the food. Cashier was quick and friendly. Subs overly greasy. Hot steak and cheese on cold bread.

There are a lot of places in Philly to get a cheesesteak. Steve's is probably my favorite, but if you don't get to go there and are looking for a good spot, Geno's at the airport is a great alternative. Get some peppers to go on it too!

By far some of the best Philly Cheesesteak ever. (we did sneak across the street to check out Pats.....and Geno's wins!) Cash only, but we knew that.....the place is spotless, by the way. Awesome neighborhood gathering place and outside seating.

I tried both Geno's and Pat's on Saturday night, and Pat's was the better of the two. The cheese steak was good but nothing to brag about. I don't feel any desire to go back and give them another chance when Pat's is 20 yards away.

Was excited to go here because of all the things we seen on TV about how great their philly streak and cheese was. Have to say wasn't impressed. To much bread for portion of meat. Counter was very unpleasant,like we were bothering her. Won't go back.

Was the best of the evening! Great tasting sandwich!! Cash only is a inconvenience, but cheesesteak is awesome and ATM is close.

Staff is friendly. Food is good. If you are in Philly, you must have a cheese steak. Thought there would be more steak in my cheese steak. Bread was delicious. There is limited seating so do not go during lunch time. Lots of toppings to choose from. Enjoy.

No parking. Steak was good but not as tasty as across the street in my opinion. Fun night out with the boys.
