    Try and make it here between their limited operating hours of 6:45am - 3pm M-F. Have anything they offer, all delicious: roast pork, roast beef, cheesesteaks.

    The roast pork is great the only thing that it doesn't travel well, eat it as soon that you get it.

    Cheesesteak, sharp provolone, and onions. Best in Philadelphia. Rolls are amazing and the steak is delicious.

    Roast beef sandwich was sooo juicy!! Roast pork was good too with the pepper corns, but wish it was as juicy as the roast beef.

    A great place for a cheesesteak, but John’s Roast Pork is more well-known for their mouth-watering roast pork sandwiches.

    Italian Roast Pork sandwich with sharp provolone and spinach. Your really can't go wrong with any sandwich here. I've been coming here since this place was the only thing in the area. Great spot !!

    Now open til 7pm. All around a great place. I'd give the roast pork edge to DeNics only slightly, but still my favorite cheesesteak in Philly. Cash only!

    From the grill or the stove, John's is a great stop for some great cheesesteaks and pork grinders.

    Even better than hype suggests it is. Roast pork with spinach and sharp provolone. Cheesesteak is solid (sesame seed bun). Cash only

    Came here in search of a better cheesesteak, did not disappoint. The roast port is pretty different than a steak, but pretty tasty. The sharp prov is a nice touch, as are the long hots.

    Great cheesesteak, but obviously it's the juicy roast pork sandwich with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe that will make you want to venture into deep South Philly.

    Brendan Rastetter · August 15, 2014

    John's has long been a favorite of dock workers and contractors, but only recently has it gained mainstream recognition as one of the best purveyors of cheesesteaks in the City of Philadelphia. Read more · August 3, 2014

    If you're not trying to check off "Philly cheesesteak" from your list, get the roast pork with sharp provolone. It is amazing and totally worth passing on a cheesesteak ;)

    Did some research while traveling around Philly and was not disappointed. The roast pork Italiano is the closest thing to perfection I've ever had. Simple and unexpected. The best food in Philly.
