John's Roast Pork

$ South Philadelphia Deli Fodor's Choice

Fodor’s Expert Review

Housed in a cinder-block bunker along a derelict railroad crossing, John’s is the quintessential purveyor of roast pork sandwiches. Newbies and lifers line up in a zigzag along the counter and grab seats at the picnic tables outside. The signature pork is juicy, garlicky, and herbaceous; sharp provolone and sautéed spinach (no broccoli rabe here) are de rigueur. John’s incidentally makes the city’s best cheesesteak, too, and if you’re up and exploring early, fantastic breakfast sandwiches lined with fluffy eggs and deep-fried pucks of scrapple.
