I was in Philly for an audition and asked a few street people where I should go to get an authentic Philly Cheesesteak. Gino's seemed to be popular. I am not sure why. It underperformed in many ways in my book. I was expecting all philly steaks from PA to be better than other places. The cheese wasn't very good, a sauce of cheese product shouldn't go on meat. The flavor of the meat wasn't good, and the white bread was a little stale.
The only highlight was the neighborhood, multi cultural and unique. There were many outdoor shops/stands, sort of like an urban farmer's market.
Currently ranked #3 on my Cheesesteak tour.
