    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 !!

    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.

    The much-adored Philly Cheesesteak is the second-best item on the menu after the restaurant’s namesake: the Roast Pork, which is seasoned and grilled with cheese and onions. Read more

    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

    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.

    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

    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 ;)

    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!

    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.

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

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

    The best OG cheesesteak in Philly - it might be a small restaurant, but it has big cheesesteaks (and big lines)

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

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

    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.

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

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

    The “Ultimate Cheesesteak” is a little part of South Philadelphia history. John’s has been in business since 1930.

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