In order to experience real Philly cheesesteak we went to the source - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, or South Philly, to be precise. Two cheesesteak purveyors compete at the intersection of 9th and Passyunk. Pat's King of Steaks is said to be the originator of the steak sandwich. In 1933, Pat Ollivieri and his brother Harry were operating a hot dog stand. Tired of hot dogs, they grilled thinly cut, inexpensive steak and ate it on a roll with grilled onions. After sampling the chopped steak, a cabbie suggested they forget about the hot dogs. In 1966, Joey Vento opened his doors across the street. His son Geno, of Geno's Steaks, admits his family didn't invent the sandwich - they just perfected it.
