When you're in South Philly, you must 11/9/2012

When you're in South Philly, you must stop at John's. The roast pork is one of the best I've ever had. Perfect seasoning but it doesn't overdo the pork. It's moist, juicy and travels well if you want to take one to go. Quick since the pork is already made but be prepared to wait in a long line during lunch. It's worth it! more

Not very good!!! 6/21/2011

The staff was a bit coarse, but nice. As for the food, not only was the roll stale, but they have the audacity to serve lunchmeat roast pork!!! The overpriced long hot pepper was drenched in low grade oil. I decided to give John's another chance, only because Georges Roast Pork on 9th. & Christian was closed on Monday. i am writing this review only after having the same experience a few times over the years. All in all, I say skip John's and go to George's on 9th. more

cheesesteak 1/28/2011

I had seen a review on this place on tv so I figured that I would try the experience for myself. Now the review I had heard was soft delicious roll,flavors burst in your mouth,just the perfect amount of cheese,you can't eat just one. more

pretty good i guess 8/1/2008

We went one day when we had an extended lunch break, because this place is never open. Read lots of reviews and this place came highly recommended. My friend and I were so hungry we decided to split a roast pork sandwich while waiting in line for the cheesesteak. The roast pork is absolutely incredible. I have nothing bad to say about it. As far as the cheesesteak, it was ok. I might have been bias after eating the roast pork first, but it was a bit of a letdown. It is pretty big and well priced, but I didn't really feel like I was eating something that deserved all this hype. But the roast pork is sensational. Pros: good service, not bad location Cons: the hours (only weekdays, closed at 3 pm) more

John's Best Cheesesteak in Philly 7/17/2008

This is the place the local Philly people go that know good sandwiches. The cheesesteak, Italian pork and beef are the best sandwiches in town. If you are a tourist you can go see drunks and uniformed tourists at Pats and Geno's eating terrible quailty sandwiches because of hype and reputations that have long since past. Take a quick look, snap your pictures, and then get to John's to eat the best cheesesteak in Philly. more

best ceese steak in town 1/26/2007

I was in philly for work, and worked the bar tenders for the best cheese steak in town. I recieved many options but after my own research and tasting only one stood out. went to Ricks at reading terminal BLAHHH, had one at J r at 18 thn Blahhh, even went down to south philly for the famous Pats and genos, very comercial might as well have went to wendys, the best cheese steak in philly goes to Johns with A grat HArd roll with About 2lbs of meat and Sharp provo, must have sharp , order quick or move on, it is behind the Lowes home improvement store off S. columbus on Snyder. After many tries this is the best intown Pros: awsome price Cons: none, be ready to order more
