Who Has The Best Cheesesteak in Philadelphia? Well, We've Finally Found Out

Pat's, Geno's, Tony Luke's? NOPE!

Categories: 

It's the age-old question... who has the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia? We hosted our first-ever Cheesesteak Cup to get to the *current* bottom of this.

Over the past 2 weeks, over 60,000 people around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware voted and made their voices heard to uncover who really does have the best cheesesteak in not just Philadelphia, but the whole tri-state area.

We had the usual suspects and claimed-to-fame spots like Pat's, Geno's, Tony Luke's, Oh Brother, and Dalessandro's competing right alongside some not-so-known spots like Dattilio's, Donkey's, and Shank's.

It all came down to the final day. Oh Brother Philly vs. Barry's Steaks.

Who was the people's choice winner? With over 11,553 votes... it's Barry's Steaks in Roxborough, PA.

96.5 TDY's own Karle and LA paid Barry's Steaks a visit to discover just how mouth-wateringly delicious their cheesesteaks really are. And it turns out, the answer is... REALLY DELICIOUS.

Barry and Wendy McGuinn have been in the business for decades. Barry started at just age 15 when he walked into competitor Dalessandro's shop, had no money to buy a steak, so Bill Dalessandro asked him if he wanted a job. The rest is, as they say, history and Barry's been dishin' up the best steaks in the business ever since, also celebrating their 30th anniversary later this year in July. The guys even make their own sodas, too.

So, that just about settles the age-old debate. (... or, does it?)

Who do you think has the best cheesesteak?
