We'll be traveling through Philly on 95 this weekend and next. Any place to get a quick and good cheesesteak not too far off the highway?

      Yup. It's practically underneath 95. John's Roast Pork is also excellent and convenient to 95, not quite as convenient as Tony Luke's but only a minute or two away from the Columbus Blvd./Washington Ave. exit.

      Of course, my advice would be to skip their cheesesteaks altogether and get a roast pork sandwich from each place.

        Or better still, one cheesesteak and one roast pork (since the poster appears to be from out of the area)

          Sounds awesome. There's two of us, so we'll get one of each. Thank you both!

        Steve's Prince of Steaks is tied with John's Roast Pork for me as the city's best cheesesteak. It's in the Northeast part of the city, not far from 95 at all. Tony Luke's is good, too, but I like Steve's and John's much more.

          My rating scale has Tony Luke's only beating out Steve's by 1/10 of a point. Both are great. The Tony Luke's roll is unbeatable.

            awesome!
