    Prepare to wait in line (separate lines for roast pork & cheesesteak!!) Sandwiches are huge & easily shareable esp if you're not starving. Don't be intimidated by the "way to order" your cheesesteak.

    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 !!

    THE BEST place to eat. #1 Cheese Steak in Philly...hands down. Roast Pork is also the best you'll find anywhere. I've been eating here for over 10yrs. Hours make it tough to get there, but it's SOO wo

    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

    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.

    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.

    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 ;)

    I'm not sure it lived up to the expectation. Definitely get it (cheese steak) w sharp cheese. Good for ppl w fat aversion as it was not greasy at all (disappointed). Fries undercooked. Overpriced.

    Been here twice. Once to have a cheesesteak and once to have a roast pork sandwich. Without the addition of the spinach, the roast pork would be average, and the cheesesteaks are not good. Meh.

    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!

    Usually only open for lunch during the week, John's recently announced Saturday hours starting next weekend. For your out-of-town friends, this is a must-stop to impress. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    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.

    Mikey Ilagan · September 18, 2009

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

    Don't be fooled by the nomenclature, the cheesesteak is the move here. Pay attention to the ordering signs, you will get yelled at.

    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.

    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.

    Try the Philly Cheesesteak - They were not kidding when they said rated 1 high quality ingredients and juicy enough to do the phillylean

    Sure, they have great pork sandwiches. But don't let the name fool you, this place has an awesome cheesesteak as well.

    You a vegetarian? That's ashame, that really is ashame. If you wanna know just how much of a shame that is, just walk in. God bless your soul.

    The “Ultimate Cheesesteak” is a little part of South Philadelphia history. John’s has been in business since 1930. · May 30, 2012
  • Joe P.

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

    Joe Petrellis · September 8, 2012
  • Terry K.

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

    Try the Cheesesteak Sandwich - With American Cheese and fried onions. This might be the best I've ever had.

    You can't go wrong with the pork or roast beef sandwiches! just don't forget the cheese and spinach!

    Justin Berkey · June 26, 2012

    John’s is best visited on a day that you are really hungry. Monday-Friday daytime only hours. –SM · August 6, 2012
  • Paul B.

    Not sure which is the best sandwich here. The cheese steak, roast pork, and roast beef are all awesome.

    Paul Bressler · November 1, 2011
  • Scott L.

    By far the best cheesesteak in Philadelphia. Also, the sharp provolone and roast pork...AMAZING

    You can sit outside and have a chat with John's mother... And the pork, sharp, with greens is delectable.

    There is nothing better than a roast pork sandwich with an ice cold rootbeer! 'Cept maybe getting to John's on time to enjoy just that!

    Forgo the cheesesteak and come for the namesake. There's a lot of better cheesesteaks in Philly.

    3pm closing is slightly deceiving get here closer to 2 since they may run out of rolls.
