I was told to go to Steve's for the best Philly cheesesteak, but, finding it closed, we continued down South Street and found John's. We each ordered the steak sandwich with a slather of cheesewiz (the Philly way) and topped with caramelized onions. Yes, it's THAT good. A greasy, gooey, tasty piece of heaven.

I forgot to add to previous review that Jon also has the best Gyro in town - they are full of lumps Lamb and not the shaved blend. It is a must
