I see some think that is authentic and some say no way since Wiz is not really cheese

so we have a newish real popular local place that has 'em with wiz, saying the real deal.

Tried one and it was good but not better than one with peppers & real cheese

so do you cheese whiz on a philly ?

I saw on TV the shops across the street from each other in Philly. At least one of them used Cheese Wiz on their steaks.

I've eaten at Pat's and Geno's - the two "famous" places across the street from each other in Philly. It's cheese wiz all the way - they do offer it with regular cheese but for an "authentic" Philly Cheese Steak - it's wiz!

I read about those two and Geno's owner will not even eat Cheese whiz - recommends provolone but says customers still want the wiz

I don't care how authentic it is, I'm not eating anything that someone took a wiz on, authentic or not. :hypno: :lol:

Eaten at both also and here in Twinsburg,OH we have a place named The Original Cheesesteak. The owners are from Philly and they offer "Wiz" or Provolone. It's really brings them back home when someone orders the Philly way...... "Large, With,, Wiz". They also serve Tasty Cakes, Birch Beer and you can get Scrapple too.

I've made them at home, once with Wiz. Kids thought it was gross. Switched to provolone and I think they look forward to the cheesesteaks the days after Thanksgiving and Christmas more than they look forward to the beef roast on the holidays.

Nice, J.!

Randy, I'm seeing Tasty Kake in the grocery here, now.

no cheese wiz for me, except on crackers when I'm really hungry/drunk.

peppers, onions, provolone all the way.

My recommendation is to forego the cheesesteak altogether and opt for a roast beef po boy. Unfortunately, I've not found a good one outside of New Orleans, Metaire and areas in between.

IMO, Cheese wiz is popular at the more tourist oriented places like Pat's or Gino's. People like to say "wiz wit" (fried onions) or wiz witout (no onions)..but in most of the local places American Cheese is the standard. We save the cheese wiz for the fries.

Al's great, there may be betters, but I ain't telling you where.

No Chicagoan will put "wiz" n anything except a Packer fan (or Lion fan.. OK or a Vikes fan)

You don't need to tell me where :-) Chicago-born boy here. I held addresses in Naperville, Oak Brook, Evanston, Chicago Heights and South Side Western Ave. 45 years of Chicago beef eating experience. Been to' em all. Even that little one off 59 in Warrenville, Angies, that you thought was a secret.

I agree that wiz belongs on a Packer fan. Goose Island 312 turns out a pretty good wiz for that.

Cheez Whiz is not cheese. Ergo, it has no place on a cheesesteak.:twocents:

If you stand between Pat and Geno's and look east you will see the South Philly Bar & Grill.

Personally, they have a better Cheese Steak Sandwich, Hot fries, They serve beer and they have a bathroom.

Better pricing also.

So I go there and watch the folks stand in line at the other two places while a bartender or server brings me my food.

Wife and I ate there two summers ago. Far better than the two tourist traps.
