Up until recently, world-famous Philly cheesesteak emporium Geno's Steaks had been slinging its signature sandwiches without current food-prep, private Dumpster, and sidewalk-café licenses. Some of the paperwork had even expired in 2011, the Morning Call reports. But perhaps because you simply cannot keep a good cheesesteak down, the restaurant is now up-to-date and, for the record, passed its most recent health-department inspection with "flying colors."
