So there may not be such a thing as a "Philly Cheeseburger," but we get what Burger King was trying to do here.
The fast food joint's newly debuted, limited-time "Philly Cheeseburger" is basically a burger modeled after a Philly cheesesteak by putting the burger(s) on a longer roll and smothering it "wit" sautéed onions and melty cheese.
According to some folks who were able to see past the differences between the iconic Philadelphia sandwich and Burger King's wannabe, it's not half bad:
The Extra Long Philly Cheeseburger from @BurgerKing is not bad at all. Extra cheesy with sautéd onions makes this a savory burger.— Rob (@RobHued) April 1, 2016
