PHL connection, Cheesesteak?

I have approximately three hours between flights and I'd like to get a cheesesteak at PHL time permitting. I don't know the airport at all (never been there but been to Philly, PA). I will connect from AA international to AA domestic.

Any tips will be appreciated. THanks.

AA international should be Terminal A. AA Domestic should be terminal B or F. There's Tony Luke's at Terminal F, never try it in this location though, their main location is great. Their main location is in South Philly is about 10-15 minutes from the airport, no traffic.

edit: Apparently there's Geno's between terminal B & C. Geno's is quite famous, IMHO, their main location is a tourist trap. I prefer Tony Luke's.

AA domestic could be in Terminals A, B, C or F.

I would stick with the name brands...Tony Luke's or Geno's. Chickie's and Pete's is also a name brand in the Philly area, but I'm just not a fan. YMMV.

Just saw this -- did you go? Where? My recommendation for future use -- Jim's on South St. IMO -- best cheesesteaks in town.

Cheers

Hey OP and all. One can take advice from someone who likes Tony Luke's, i.e., the tourist trap, or one can take advice from someone else. You decide.

Cheers

Again, one can go to the tourist trap re TL's or try a good cheese steak at Jim's.

LOL, South St is the definition of Tourist Trap. Can't blame you since you are a tourist indeed.

Moderator note.

Let's respect that different members' opinions may differ on the best cheesesteak around PHL or in the city. Going forward, let's discuss the topic, rather than the member(s) in a personalized way. (FT Rule 12). Thanks! Ocn Vw 1K, Sr. Moderator.
