“You comin’ to the fight?”
This Philly staple has been beloved by cheesesteak fans since 1930 and since 1976 has been a highlight for hungry Rocky fans.
This lively joint is where Tony Gazzo brought Rocky to grab a bite to eat. Pat’s is still going strong today and even boasts a plaque on the cement which reads “On this spot stood Sylvester Stallone filming the great motion picture Rocky. Nov. 21, 1975”.
Robert Plazek’s Travel Tip: “For the out-of-towners, Pat’s have put together a step by step guide on ‘how to order a steak’ situated above the ordering counter. Take a minute to read it before placing an order as there is system to abide by.
You can even stand in the spot where Balboa stood while eating your Philly cheesesteak sandwich.
Parking here may be difficult as Pat’s is very popular and there are always long lines of customers waiting for their cheesesteaks. Across the street is a competitor of Pat’s, so it may take some circling to find a parking space as this area is very busy.
