Pat's King of Steaks in Philadelphia to Open Second Location

Pat's Steaks will open its second location at Penn States Beaver Stadium, offering the same delicious steak sandwiches that generations of Philadelphians have enjoyed. The new site will feature their classic Philly cheesesteaks.

Pat's will be following two other Philadelphia classics that opened this year at the stadium, Chickie and Pete's – West and Northeast Concourse and Philly Pretzel – Southwest Concourse

The opening of Pat's Steak's second location is an exciting milestone for the business and Philadelphia. Frank Olivieri plans to open even more Pat's Steaks across the county if this new location succeeds.

About Pat's

The cheesesteak made its official debut in 1930. Pat Olivieri was a South Philadelphia hot dog vendor who decided to put some beef from the butcher on his grill one day. A taxicab driver noticed the alluring aroma and asked for his steak sandwich. The next day, as the story goes, the rumor of the delicious lunch had spread, and cabbies around the city came to Olivieri demanding steak sandwiches. Soon after, Olivieri opened up a shop on 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue, Pat's King of Steaks, to sell his new creation. Eventually, according to legend, he added cheese to the recipe.

Today, Pat's grills are sizzling 24 hours a day, as are Geno's, the rival shop across the street. For 40 years, the two shops have waged a friendly competition to win the best cheesesteak title in town, with Geno's founder, Joe Vento, claiming it was he, not Olivieri, who first added cheese to the cheesesteak.
