Friendly service and really good food. I had the godfather and it was really amazing. Their own brand of cream soda was good too. Great variety on the menu - will definitely go back again

Super-friendly staff and amazing Philly cheese steaks! Go for The Works with onions and peppers and just savor the flavor all the way through. A huge value given the relatively low price for what you get.

John's Philly Grille is our go-to spot when we want take-out sandwiches. Several versions of the Philly cheese steak, all good. Many other hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, etc. Freshly prepared to order, tasty, filling, well-priced. There is an eat-in area but no ambience; really just a spot for a quick meal on the go.

Even thougth this is a small place. the owner is truly from Pennsylvania and has the flavor of cheese steak subs down pat. He even has Tasty cakes, so do your self a favor, if you want to explore some casual food from the City of Brotherly love (where I am from originally) drop in for some delicious luncheon fare.
