Joe's (formerly Chinks) sits on the corner like something out of the 1950's. It looks like an old dining car from a train: long, narrow, silver on the outside with plenty of neon. It was my first night in Philly, a Wednesday, and I wanted...More

We are the Philly steak and cheese sandwiches and they were very tasty. They have a pickle and pepper bar. The service was great, the prices were decent, and we found a place on the side of the street to park close by.

Stopped here for a late lunch after flying into PA from CO. Cute little neighborhood place. Great cheesesteak sandwiches, could've used a bit more cheese but the meat and onions were perfect. The milkshake was huge, should've shared one instead of getting 2.

Not only do you get fresh, yummy cheesesteaks, but their milkshakes are to die for! And I adore their pickle bar with lot's of fresh topping to add to your sandwich. Service is fast and friendly and I'm never disappointed.
