    This is true! If you don’t provide your name, one will be “assigned” to you….

    I am a name tag reader. Eventually I know the staff names in the stores I frequent, even without their name badges, even in different stores when they are out. Most never ask my name. Some people don’t try anymore.

    If the sandwich is made from chicken, can it really be called “steak”?

    Zen Buddhists wouldn’t have a problem with it. If it bothers you, SL, call it a chicken cheese-George hoagie.
    (I’ll have the chicken pizza steak. Yums.)

    The reason it’s called steak in some places has to do with the cut it’s taken from…the name of the cut is “steak”. Some places serve “real” cuts of beef or chicken, in the cut of a steak, some do the “wafer” style, but still from a steak style (rib-eye) of cut.

    The other reason is that it’s just slang… cheesesteak becomes the “name” of the sandwich, and chicken is a variation of it…. almost similar to how in the south and west one calls a cola a “coke”, no matter what brand it is, like: “And what kind of coke would you like with that?”….

    As Ash or Robb could tell you, Pat’s (from Philly) is credited with inventing the sandwich…. but don’t let someone from Geno’s hear you saying that…..

    Personally, I have had some from the Baltimore area near where I live that would also rival one from there… but don’t tell them that, Lol!

    Pat’s and Geno’s are only for tourists or if you’re drunk at 3:00 AM and can make your way down to 9th & Wharton Sts. at Passyunk Ave.
    I prefer Tony Luke’s at Front St. & Oregon Ave., and I’ve heard of even better places than that, but I haven’t had a chance to try them.

    Hey, I didn’t say I frequented Pat’s or Genos, myself, nor did I say they were the best… just that Pat’s was credited with the first, and with the cheese whiz variation, and that they and Geno’s have always had war over it… like I said, I have had some from where I live, and also from places in Philly and Chester and Pottstown that weren’t Pats, like A-1, on West Market Street, near Drexel or from some of the carry outs near Temple… also like the one from N.Y. Fried Chicken (same people as Kennedy/Crown carry outs)…

    I also try to catch a glance at their tag… only thing is if I were to use the name on their tag first before they get a chance to tell me their name, they’re like: “Uh, how…. Oh! I forgot I had my tag on!”….

    Whether chicken or beef, I prefer mine with onions, mayo and lots of cheese… and as much as I love tomatoes, they can be optional on a cheesesteak, as long as I have the first three things…. some even enjoy shrimp or pizza cheesesteak…. Hmmm……Now I know what I’m doing on payday….
