What food item comes to mind when you think of Philadelphia?  Cheese steaks?  If so, you’re with the majority of the people we spoke with. We would occasionally hear the pretzel, but majority of the time it was the infamous hoagie.

In his weekly segment “What’s Up With That, Zach?”, PHL17’s Zachery Lashway hits the streets of Philadelphia to see if people can tell the difference between Pat’s King Of Steaks or Geno’s Steaks, two of Philadelphia’s popular cheese steak establishments.  But there’s no taste testing involved.  Patrons have to decide which cheese steak is Pat’s and which one is Geno’s by the way they look.  It’s not easy, even for people who are born and raised in the City of Brotherly Love.  Ask yourself, without tasting the hoagies, do you think you could tell where it was from by the way it looks?
