John’s Roast Pork has long been a favorite of South Philadelphia dock workers and contractors, but only recently has John’s gained mainstream recognition as one of the best purveyors of cheesesteaks in the City of Philadelphia.

This is due, in large part, to Philadelphia Inquirer Restaurant Critic Craig Laban, who in 2002 conducted a famous Cheesesteak Project to determine the best cheesesteaks in the region. In the end, John’s came out as the undeniable champion in all three categories.
