Roast pork sandwich

is the best! Hands down! They will pack up the pork, gravy and broccoli rabe separately if you want take out. Roll and sharp provolone on the side. Absolutely delish.

Great moist and flavorful sandwich. Always crowded but the wait is not that bad. I have not tried the other sandwiches but they look delicious.

The Brisket is incredible. We can't wait to get back and order more! Great people who work there, and the product is worth traveling the 6 hrs from Rochester NY to Philly. Try the pork, or the brisket, you won't be sorry! We do love the Flyers too!

Roast pork with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. This is a good sandwich, but not the mind blowing variety that many raved about. It's a good combination of ingredients and the the roast pork is certainly juicy, but drenches the bread instantly, making it soggy and difficult to consume. The long lines exist, but aren't unbearable unless you're in a... More

Forget the famous Philly cheesesteak. This is the place for an authentic taste of philly. High quality meat, seasoning is perfect, hand sliced cheese, peppery greens!! This sandwich is amazing!!! It's worth a trip to philly just to have one of these!

Roast beef was plain and not really that good. I know the pork is the goto but I wanted to try one of their other sandwiches and it wasn't that good and average at best.

When you arrive and see every seat taken, and the line of people waiting to get their order, you KNOW you have come to the right place. Roast pork is better than the roast beef, but that's just my option. Great buzz, great food, great staff.
