In the biggest upset since Craig LaBan dinged Le Bec Fin of two of its bells, OG food blogger Holly Moore has downgraded Pats Steaks from five grease stains down to four. Whats more, one of those stains, he tweeted earlier this week, was awarded solely for the history of the cheesesteak shrine. So, in terms of quality and taste, the mother of all cheesesteaks has lost considerable ground. Last couple of visits got gristle in my steaks, and the meat to bun ratio is getting stingy. Also a cheesesteak now costs $9.50, which is really pushing it, Moore wrote.
Back in January, Grub took a lot of flack for suggesting the cheesesteaks popularity was waning, and that underdog, the roast pork sandwich, was quickly rising to take its place at the top. Perhaps we werent too far off the mark. Only time will tell.
