Any time you have to queue around the corner it's got to be good. Great cheesesteaks - in their truest form. Cheese whiz adds a bit of juice. Hot peppers on the side. Watching the whole thing work is part of the experience. Seating upstairs.

I have been a customer of this establishment for over 45 years. It is a great place to get a Philly (Cheese) Steak or a Hoagie.

Visited with 2 coworkers. Its not fancy but man is it good. We took advice from some local folks and went with the extra meat with onion and "Whiz" as opposed to provolone. Was great advice. The sandwich very good from the meat and cheese right down to the bun.

So we went to Philly for the Made in America Fest! The weekend concert was the best. Anyway, there was no way we were going to leave Philly without trying a Philly Cheesesteak Hoagie. The minute we walked in I knew that we were in the right place.

Certainly one of the best in town. It's always on the short list along with the big two and Tony Luke's. But there are better out there and in fact right up the street at Woodrow's you can now find the best cheesesteak I've ever had.

Heard they had amazing cheesesteaks. But I was not impressed. Service was slow. Meat was dry. Save your money and go to Tony Lukes.

I wanted to compare cheesesteaks in Philly but I haven't been able to NOT go to Jim's. I also have fallen in love with the Ham and Cheese hoagie.

Been coming here for 35 years. Moved out of state and returned to Jims for first time in 5 years. Everything is still the same ,and I mean that in the best of ways. Steaks here are fantastic. Value is exceptional , quality and service top notch. Always enjoy the environment. The lines say it all.
