Geno's really does suck

A few years ago, the night before my first (and last) trip to Philadelphia, I was trying to find out where the best place to get a cheesesteak was. Magically, Dave Attell's "Insomniac" show that night was about Philly. He traveled to Cheesesteak Corner, where Pat's and Geno's point right at each other and customers brawl in the street.

Attell went to Pat's, which is supposed to be the true originator of the cheesesteak. On the TV, everyone in line at Pat's chanted "GENO'S SUCKS! GENOS SUCKS!" at the patrons across the way.

Well, Geno's really does suck. The owner, with his ninth grade education, has deemed English the official language of the U.S. and now forbids ordering in any other language. He also still sells Freedom Fries.

He's only trying to help people learn English, he says.
