    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    Don't do that wit/witout nonsense they make you do at lesser, Xenophobic cheesesteak shops

  • Andy G.

    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.

    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!
