I had a taste for some roast pork, and decided to go down to John's. I use to work near there years ago, and went regularly. The sandwiches are still superb. I had the roast pork with spinach and extra sharp provolone cheese. They packed the roll with meat. There's not much ambiance to the place, but if you want... More

I don't know if this counts as a "real review" since I didn't eat anything. I stood in line to order my sandwich and my onion rings, just like everyone else; and the place was fairly busy. Unfortunately, the nasty woman who took my order was so incredibly rude that after about 20 seconds with her I thanked her for... More

We landed in Philly and went straight from the airport in search of a cheesesteak. My coworker found this place online so we thought why not. I have to say I was skeptical from the outside then I saw the James Beard award. I had the mushroom cheesesteak and it was amazing. I would definitely like to go back next... More

So I am thinking this place is not ranked higher due to its location and "ambiance." Get over it! The food here is truly amazing. Whether it's the pork sandwich, the cheese steak or the Italian sausage you CANNOT go wrong. Heck get one of each! Does it have a nice sitdown area... Well no, but the food! OH MY... More

John's deserves all the hype it gets.Can't wait to get back and enjoy the roast pork ! It has been said that with a fine wine the people yo are with, the time of year/day, and all other factors contribute to your memory of the flavors, and I suspect my memory of the one best cheesesteak I reference is only...

The roast pork was very good alittle peppery for me but very good and I really liked the cheese steak it was delicious. The sandwichs was as advertised very full of meat. Much more meat than any other place in Philly. Very small and ordering is confusing You have to order in two different places

I'll admit I was expecting more having read a lot of reviews. Don't get me wrong they make a GOOD chicken or traditional philly cheese steak. Personally, I liked the chicken one better. Watching them cook the steak makes you realize just how quality of a product they are serving up. I however, was envisioning the cheese whiz oozing through... More

Truly the best cheese steak that I've ever had. You must get it with sharp provolone and long hots. They note accept credit cards.
