John's simply cannot be improved. The whole experience -- the dingy room, the camped-out South Philly locals, the dripping pork and soaked bread, the plastic forks and Styrofoam juice cups and bottle of Schmidt's -- deserves to be enshrined in the Smithsonian.
Sure the line can be confusing and the hours are erratic but the cheesesteaks and roast pork sandwiches at this South Philly spot cannot be beat. Extra long hots, please
The hours make this place a hurdle to get to, but it's worth it. A great feel of South Philly when waiting in line for a roast pork.
There is a little bit of figuring out of how the lines work here, but everyone is really nice and the sandwiches are good, too. If you don't eat meat, there's a grilled cheese option!
