HunGJaI Well...Guess it was my fault for not checking...but Buckmans are closed on Sunday...

Spent too much time at the outlet and king of Prussia on Saturday

Oh well another time...

Managed to eat Jim's, Pats and Geno all in 1 day...I think I had enough cheese-steak for awhile

,andreas The King of Prussia buckman's is on point. Try to find a young kid who works there though, not some salty old ski bum who has been there for years and only knows about skis.

I've only been to the Doylestown location but from what I've been told, the KOP and Montgomeryville Buckmans have the best selection of all the stores. Bonus if you're already planning on King of Prussia

Buckmans at Ardmore
The Ski Bum

As for food, if your a foodie, go to Amada in olde city. Spanish Tapas. Expensive, about 50-60 for a 3-4 tapas and a few drinks meal but definitely my favorite place in town (you can make a reservation or do a walk in and get the tables by the bar (my favorite) because its a 2+ month wait for a table on a saturday night). If you're going to get the good ole philly cheese steak, skip the souvenier shops like pats and genos and go straight to Jims steaks on 4th and south.

This should help you out.
Thank you!

MUTCHYMAN I just got your PM. The man above hit every location on the head in that area. Depending when you are coming down, there are some small shops in allentown PA near Blue Mountain. As for food, they are all good in Philly. Definately get a cheese steak from Geno's or Pat's. Sooooo goood.

Those are your best bet for PA based Philadelphia board shops. From what i can tell, Wicks in Exton is the best when it comes to knowledge. Buckmans is good too but alot of their employees don't know too much.

You can also say that "this shop" offers this much and every one of the three will match the competitors prices.
Thanks Will!

Just booked my hotel will be staying close by the airport area... i will forsure check out Wicks in Exton then...

now...Where can I get some good food

Yes...Canadian portion are very small compared to US
