  • Russell H.Very unorganized ordering system. First stop is cheese steaks, second stop is roast pork. Both are phenom. Lots of people hanging around not waiting in line. Pork is immediate, steaks can take 20mins+

  • Dramane B.The Cheese steak was awesome. Sadly, they don’t have whiz, which is the only thing missing

    55555 by Dramane B.


  • Paul LThey have great streak and pork sandwiches. I actually like the pork sandwich better. Either way you can't go wrong... And be sure to stand in the right line.

    55555 by Paul L


  • Matthew ARoast pork sharp provolone and spinach with a long hot is a little piece of heaven on earth

    55555 by Matthew A


  • David A.Roast pork was good but Dinics still my favorite

    55555 by David A.


  • Emily SThe roast pork sandwich was good, no doubt... but their Philly cheesesteak with sharp provolone is fantastic. Granted it was my first cheesesteak ever, but still. Don't forget to add banana peppers.

    55555 by Emily S


  • Behrad B.You come here for the namesake Roast Pork and you leave satisfied.

    55555 by Behrad B.


  • Behrad B.While they serve a solid roast pork, their cheesesteak is one of the best in Philly!

    55555 by Behrad B.


  • Saarim NAlthough the roast pork is what this place is known for, get the philly cheesesteak with sharp provolone and onions instead. You won't regret it.

    55555 by Dina Rughani


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

    55555 by Michael D


  • PureWowThe 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.

    55555 by PureWow


  • Leandro L.Old school Philly Cheese Steak place. Good stuff but I don't like old school Philly cheese steak joints it seems

    55555 by Leandro L.


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

    22222 by Elyse E.


  • Lance L.A very underrated Philly cheesesteak and an outstanding roast pork

    55555 by Lance L.


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

    55555 by Ryan C


  • Mario T.Best roast pork and spinach...hands down ....need to experience it

    55555 by Mario T.


  • Eric L.Cheese steaks are superb!

    55555 by Eric L.


  • Jason S.Bring a friend so you can split a large roast pork and a cheesesteak for dessert.

    55555 by Jason S.


  • Arzi R.Post-thanksgivings treat. Was a mighty fine cheese steak. Drove down from Queens because, why the hell not?

  • Loren W.Cheesesteaks

    55555 by Loren W.


  • Katie C.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.

    55555 by Katie C.

    55555 by Joseph W.


  • Cristina G.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.

    55555 by Frank


  • NealNow 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!

    55555 by Neal


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

    55555 by Terry K.


  • Christerfer S.Try the roast beef. Its as incredible as the pork!

    55555 by Christerfer S.

  • Tony F.Roast pork hoagie!

    55555 by Tony F.


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

    55555 by Alex Tomasik


  • Joshua HaftelCame 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.

    55555 by Joshua Haftel

    55555 by Zach D


  • Brendan R.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.

    55555 by Brendan R.


  • Philly.comJohn'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.

    55555 by Philly.com


  • Megan EIf 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 ;)

    55555 by Megan E

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

    55555 by Romny V.


  • John V.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.

  • 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.
