Yum! Recently, my family and I were on the way to a Philadelphia 76ers game, when my parents wanted me to have a kid friendly, Authentic Philly Cheese Steak. So, we drove to Geno’s Steaks. I must mention that it took close to an hour to find a parking spot remotely close. That part was frustrating. When we finally got there, I decided on a cheese steak with cheese wiz (steak with wiz), and my Mom and I sat down at a table. My dad waited in line for a while, payed, and returned with our cheese steaks. Gino’s steaks are no ordinary cheese steaks, though. They are sliced thick, but they are still to die for! The cheese wiz is surprisingly delicious on a cheese steak! I had nothing to drink, (I was too busy eating my delicious cheese steak to drink, and I wasn’t thirsty). There is a small menu, but all of the choices are savory with great quality. There is no indoor seating at Geno’s, but there are many things to look at at their seating outside. There is a roof over the outdoor seating, so a great place to come if it rains.
Hey Kids! There is no kid’s menu, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy their messy, but delicious cheese steaks. Be patient, because it can take some time to get your food if the line is long.
Hey Parents! The line takes little time to wait in, if it’s not very crowded. But it is worth the wait!
I can’t say much for kid friendly service, because you HAVE to know what you want, or they get frustrated.
WARNING: DO NOT GO TO PAT’S ACROSS THE STREET AND ORDER SOMETHING THEN COME TO GENO’S. THEY WILL MAKE YOU THROW OUT ANYTHING FROM PAT’S THERE, BUT NOT IN THEIR GARBAGE CANS, OR THEY WILL KICK YOU OUT.
I give Geno’s 1 1/2 thumbs out of two because of the not- really kid friendly service, otherwise, everything else was splendid!
