After getting fresh air from walking through the square hopefully you have worked up an appetite, as one cannot come to Philadelphia without trying a cheesesteak. Why not go to one of the top places that specialize in cheesesteaks? '''Geno’s Steaks''' is almost 2 miles from Rittenhouse Square. Geno’s is located on 1219 South 9th St. In 1966 Geno’s was started and has stayed as a family owned diner since then. There is no indoor dining available at Geno’s; however there are tables available under a canopy along the sidewalk. To see the menu click here http://www.genosteaks.com/menu.html. Geno's is open 24 hours, and the line has been said to stretch around the block no matter the time!
