Pat's Steaks

Just got back from my first trip to Philly - really enjoyed the city. However, I have to express my disapointment with Pat's Steaks in South Philly. I'm wondering if this place is mostly a tourist trap. I got the recommendation from the Sterns Roadfood column. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't very good. I had the steak sandwich with onions and american: my wife had it without and with provel. Both were fairly bland. The entire dinner was very expensive considering the quality - the bill came to around $30.00 for the both of us, with drinks and cheese fries. Plus, a place like this should really serve beer.

I never found the cheesesteak experience I was hoping for (had one in a bar downtown). Maybe I should have bought off the street carts?

I'm thinking my daughter will end up in School in Philly and I'll be back. I'll keep looking. Any suggestions?
