I good friend of mine suggested (actually ORDERED would be more accurate!) I head to Nick's and try their roast beef sandwich when he learned I was travelling to Philly. First off, lets be clear, if you want the real thing it has to be from the Nick's on 20th and Jackson in South Philly not the one on 2nd ST in Old City, I sampled them both and there's NO comparison. Back to the samwich, it was a sloppy mess but so delicious you don't care!!! The slow roasted beef topped with sharp provolone and fresh horseradish melts in your mouth... literally. Combine the food with the no frills throwback (or should I say "UNCHANGED") setting and you have a winner. If you're travelling to Philly, forget Geno's cheesesteaks or Tony Luke's roasted poprk hoagies, head to Nick's and have the original roast beef... the best sandwich in Philadelphia!!
