5 to Try


H & J Mc Nally's Tavern Inc

8634 Germantown Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19118

McNally's Schmitter revs up the cheesesteak with grilled salami, tomatoes and "special sauce" all piled into a kaiser roll. Sounds odd, tastes great.


John's Roast Pork

14 Snyder Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19148

John's pork sandwiches were good enough for the men and women who built the city's shipyards and, yes, they're good enough for you too.


Sarcone's Deli

734 S 9th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147

You'll need the wisdom of Solomon to choose between their hoagies: the city's best. Start with tuna and roasted red pepper dominated Ave Maria and move on from there.


Famous 4th Street Delicatessen

700 S Fourth St, Philadelphia, PA 19147

The classic deli off South Street is famous for longevity, power lunches, celebrities and Philly's best Reuben.
