For reasons that have never been entirely clear, Denver -- a city 2,000 miles removed from the front lines of the Pat's-versus-Geno's sandwich war -- has always been a battleground fought over by rival cheesesteak operations. There's east side versus west side, foothills against flatlands, and that competition is all good for cheesesteak consumers. But Pat's #1 is the winner, edging out all comers with a sublime, authentic Philly cheesesteak that's a perfect combination of shredded, flat-grilled beef gummed together with melted cheese and an easy dose of fried onions, all mounded up inside a soft, chewy bun that's just dense enough to soak up the excess grease. Despite the obvious handicap of doing its best work half a continent away from the center of the cheesesteak universe -- and for a crowd that still sometimes labors under the ridiculous delusion that a cheesesteak ain't proper without green peppers and mushrooms -- Pat's stays true to its school.

Our watchful eyes have observed thie alias: "Ellie Pahlka" for more than a decade in her high-gear gastronomic frenzies and would tend to agree ... Ellie travels the country to any town, eating "Philly Cheesesteaks," slices of carrot cake and other assorted food groups.And she totes those lbs. of proof around with her to prove it.We be waiting for Ellie to win an award for this volunteer education on food too!

Stop the voting right now! Large's Marge's has the best Philly cheesesteaks in ANY town. I was born in Philly and I know the real thing. Hers are unbelieveable, and worth the trip to get a true taste of Philly. Do not accept any imitations!
