A Brief History of the Cheesesteak

The cheesesteak made its official debut in 1930. Pat Olivieri was a South Philadelphia hot dog vendor who one day decided to put some beef on his grill. A regular noticed the aroma and asked for a steak sandwich. The next day, rumor of the delicious lunch had spread, and customers from around the city came to Olivieri for steak sandwiches. Later Olivieri opened up a shop, Pat’s King of Steaks, to sell his new creation. Eventually, according to legend, he added cheese to the recipe. Today, Pat’s grills are on 24 hours a day, as well as Geno’s, the rival shop across the street. For 40 years, the two shops have waged a friendly competition to win the title of best cheesesteak in town, with Geno’s founder, Joe Vento, claiming he, not Olivieri, first added cheese to the cheesesteak.
