Whenever we come to town we go right to Tony L’s for a pork sandwich. We were told to try this place as they have a very good sandwich as well. Truthfully I would rate it as almost as good. I prefer the broccoli rabe...More

Wanted to visit an institution in Philly and felt this fit the bill for authentic sandwich, "Philly-style". The restaurant is in an industrial section of Philly. You wait in line, but it moves fast. By the time you are at the counter, you'll have figured...More

Spit roast pork steak with cheese, with my son. Ordered onion rings and put on both! Absolutely the best two sandwiches we both ever had!!!! Waited hour and half in line, still worth it!

First timer in Philly and first timer in ordering Philly cheesesteak so maybe this is why my cheesesteak wasn't made with grilled onions and with sharp provolone cheese like I ordered. I always assumed that a small shack meant authentic great food but in this...More

Unnecessarily nasty attitude - this is why people everywhere know Philadelphians to be the most unfriendliest people in the USA. Too bad, the cooks there make really good sandwiches but you have to deal with the white trash girls behind the counter, too.

John's Roast Pork is an institution. It's fair to say that this is the best Cheesesteak that I've ever had. It's not for the faint of heart. They don't do 'small' with the cheesesteak. But it's uniquely incredible. Gotta do it!

Waht a dive, cool place- I came at 10:30am for "early lunch" because I had to try the roast pork sandwich- it was incredible. There were people coming in and out, even at this time before the lunch rush. There is a factory across the...More

Everything in this little deli is very tasty but you would be cheating yourself if you didn't try their Roast Pork sandwich with or without sharp provolone. Or try any one of their chicken steak sandwiches or a specialty cheese steak like a steak Milano,...More

After having tried MANY cheesesteak places throughout the entire Philly area, every time I visit and get a cheesesteak from John's, I'm reminded why. Unlike other popular spots, this place is made to order. On weekends the lines get very long, and the wait time...More
