The roast pork with spinach is good. They used to have cherry peppers stop serving them. I heard they sold it not sure.

If you go around lunch expect a crowd. This is the best cheese steak in Philadelphia...totally off the beaten path in southeast Philadelphia with lots of law enforcement getting their noon time nurishment. There is a small area with tables to munch your sandwich and picnic tables outside...soda and water for sale...friendly chaos behind the counter as they deal with... More

Wanted to try a famous Philadelphia Cheeseteak at a location the locals go to. Andrew Zimmern on the Travel Channel said this was the best! I think he was right, it was delicious. We chose the classic with grilled onions & provolone. We also tried the roast pork sandwich but preferred the cheesesteak hands down! Thanks Andrew! The store itself... More

I've been here a few times. Lets just state from the beginning that this is an open air restaurant. They have seating in the winter with plastic covered windows and a propane heater (if its working). Seating is limited. The restaurant itself is very small and they attempt to move you as fast as they can. For all this I... More

Holy mother of pearl. Gotta be the best cheesesteak I've ever had. Do big I could only eat half of it.

Struggle to find parking. Patiently wait in line. Hopefully find a seat to eat. Then enjoy a delicious pork sandwich, which is one of the best. Absolutely no frills, this is a funky place, to be sure. You sit outdoors, so it's not for winter dining. Prices are fair. The other sandwiches are not as good as the pork. Worth... More

During my 5 day trip to Philly I sought after the "BEST" cheese steak sandwich. After seeing this place ranked #1 on a site and #2 on another I decided to try and boy was I not disappointed! Absolutely incredible! Service is a little brash and raw, however I think it adds to the allure of this place! Definitely recommend... More

I went here because it's highly rated. I'm from Chicago so burger joints a favorite. A few years ago when I was in Philly I gave the cheesesteak a shot. I didn't like it then. I decided to give it a second shot because this place is highly rated. Maybe I should've stuck with the pork. I would come back.... More

How can anyone say the pork sandwich is bland? Well you must not be a regular here. That's why they serve the pork italiano. Five stars and thumbs up from me...the name is John's Roast Pork. They specialize in juicy roast pork. Don't knock the pork...its fresh and delicious.

Just to update my previous review on their roast pork/cheese steaks. A must try is their breakfast sandwiches. My fav is the Bacon/Egg/Scrapple and cheese sandwich. I was warned that it would be too big with two meats and it was. It was also perfect in every way. Plenty of meat and cheese perfectly crafted and cooked perfectly. Worth every... More
