PHILADELPHIA — When Mark Zuckerberg comes to Philadelphia, he does as Philadelphians do.

The Facebook CEO on Sunday posted a picture of himself ordering a cheesesteak at one of the city’s most well-known eateries. The caption reads: “Traveled all the way to Philadelphia for the best cheesesteak in the land.”

Employees of The Original Pat’s King of Steaks say the tech billionaire even knows how to order the sandwich like a local, saying “Whiz wit” to let cooks know that he wanted his steaks topped with Cheez Whiz and onions.

Pat’s night manager Michael Boninfante tells KYW-TV that it was “really cool to find out that a guy larger than life, at the end of the day, is just a normal guy.”
