"Local connoisseurs" queue up early for "first-rate" roast pork sandwiches and cheesesteaks at this family-run "old-school joint" in South Philly that closes at 3 PM (or whenever "they run out"); expect "long lines that move fast" at this "everlasting cornerstone of true Philly food", where "you eat outside on picnic tables or in your car"; P.S. cash only.

The South Philly corner of South 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue is the neon-heavy carnival setting of the Philly cheesesteak wars—and the destination of many a college road trip. The main contenders are Pat's King of Steaks (1237 E. Passyunk Ave.; 215-468-1546; www.patskingofsteaks.com) and Geno's (1219 S. 9th St.; 215-389-0659; www.genosteaks.com), but true connoisseurs wind up at John's, a...

I was in Philadelphia for one day and figured I needed to have a cheesesteak... Geno's and Pat's were the obvious tourist choices but a couple minutes on the internets proved those would be bad options if what I was after was really a great cheesesteak. Amongst several candidates I finally chose John's. The cheesesteak was good - made from...

Delicious! We all had cheese steak with mild provolone but 2 with grilled onions. Yum yum! If you are making a trip to Philadelphia stop here. The family that owns it and works here is fun to listen to as well. Just an all around great time.
