Travel to Philly regularly and always make a point of hitting a different place every time for a cheesesteak. Been going for 30 years, but never made it to John’s. Big mistake - this is my place now, I’m done trying other places! John’s is...More

I visited on a Saturday right at 12pm. The line surprisingly was not too bad, as I was able to walk right up to order my pork sandwich while those wanting a steak sandwich had to wait in line. The sandwich was absolutely delicious and...More

If you're looking for "the philly steak". Look no further. This is no Geno's or Pats, this is the real deal. A must try with everything from the standard cheese steak to the toast pork with spinach, absolutely amazing.

The food is 5 star or better.....we showed up one friday night at 7 (when they close) and they must have been exhausted because they barked at us to leave. We came back Saturday and it was busy .....but worth the wait.....

There is a reason this place has been in business since 1932 and it isn't the chic decor...its the most wonderful roast beef sandwich in town!
