Geno's is an excellant philly cheesesteak vendor located in South Philadelphia. They sell one of the best cheesesteaks you'll ever taste, 'nuff said. You also need to order it in a special way, don't ask for a cheesesteak when that's the only thing they have, because they obviously have it. Don't be a fucking idiot. Look to the example on how to order a "cheesesteak with cheesewhiz and no onions or peppers."
