    Best cheesesteak in Philly. Prepare to stay in line to order and then to stay in another line if you want to dine in.

    Get the classic steak with onions, wiz and a little ketchup. Can't be beat anywhere in the city.

    It's the best cheesesteak in Philly, but only if you get extra whiz. Otherwise, it can be a bit dry.

    Definitely worth the wait. Spend that time figuring out how you're gonna order like a local.

    Forget Pat's and Geno's. Seriously. Jim's is now at the top of my cheesesteak list. Yum! 💕

    The lines at this place are honestly so random. Definitely go if you think you are hungry and there is no line.

    Jim's has better bread than Geno's or Pat's. Also if you opt for provolone they "scientifically" put the cheese and steak on the bread to ensure proper meltitude.

  • Angelita M.

    The cheesesteaks are okay. Not as good as I expected. The meat needs salt but the bread is good.

    The line is worth the wait. Cash only. Bring a slice of pizza and wrap your cheese steak in it for a unique Philly experience. THEY HAVE VEGETARIAN OPTIONS. <3

    I've definitely had better. Dont have them put ketchup on, turns in a sloppy mess. Really missing the cheesy gooeyness. Disappointing.

    Authentic cheesesteaks and lots of memorabilia over the years!

    Justin Ehrecke · December 27, 2014
  • Joshua H.

    Not sure if my tastes have changed or Jim's has gone downhill. The steak was dry and under seasoned. The bread and peppers were still good. Plenty of good memories here, so I'll still come back.

    Joshua Haftel · December 27, 2014
  • Vivian T.

    Top 5 cheesesteak joint. Super touristy but awesome nonetheless. Canned whiz is the way to go.

    The cheesesteak is meaty and great with the onions, you can get some extra spice to complement it.

    Justin Ordoveza · October 17, 2014
  • Lori S.

    Skip the canned mushrooms, but the onions and peppers are good!
