John's Roast...Beef??

Philly Ray Feb 5, 2014 12:01 PM

I only tried the beef there once and now I know why. But as good as all of his other sandwiches are, he's got a long way to go to catch Nick's.

    hmm that does look tasty.

    i've only been to john's once but we had the roast pork and weren't huge fans. however.... also ordered a cheesesteak... i swear it was the best i've had!

      l am the ultimate Nick's on 20th & Jackson fan, but was impressed with John's. Different type of sandwich but l liked better than his pork.
      DiNic's beef not in same category.

        You've tried it since he started making it on site or back when he was outsourcing it?
