Jim's Steaks

eat in, late at night & grab a beer for upstairs. be prepared to wait in a line. but sometimes there's a street act for entertainment.

She ain't what she used to be – I could swear the steaks at Jim's used to be sliced fresh on a slicer and then grilled without chopping the meat much at all. Now it is so finely chopped it might as well be hamburger meat and I don't think it is sliced fresh for each order either.

I would say the steaks were average. They leave the back door open also with plastic strip hanging in the doorway. Wonder how many unwanted visitors of the non-human kind might find their way in that way?

I don't get the crowds waiting for a mediocre steak.

Best Cheesesteaks PERIOD! – I have tried Pat's and Geno's, and let me tell you...they are JUNK compared to Jim's!!!

Even with the traffic of South Street and hunt for a parking spot do not stop us from going to Jim's. Pat's and Geno's could be offering free steaks, we would STILL go to Jim's.

If you haven't already had a Jim's...well what are you waiting for????

Authentic steaks right here.... – Great place to grab a steak sandwich....when any of my friends are in from out of town this is where we go hands down. Sometimes you will be waiting in line, but that is to be expected....its worth the wait, trust me! This place lives up to the hype, check it out.

JUST ATE AT JIM'S – I just got into Philly while on business, I stayed at the Omni, had a beer at the bar and asked the bartender how far Pat & Genos were from the hotel, with a look of disgust on his face, he said it was in south philly and was a decent drive. He then said that they were over hyped , over rated and I must go to Jim's, several patrons at the bar chimed in and said JIMS STEAKS! you have to try em

So I walked the 6 block in the snow and found Jims. The line was short but it was only about 6 on friday and it is lcated in a bar type neighborhood. I thought the guys behind the counter were friend and damn fast, I tipped a couple buck and the guy who took the money behind the counter genuinely appreciated it, i am guessing the constant flow of 20 somethings don't tip.

I had mine with whiz and onions and had a beer ($2.90 for a beer!)

the roll was hot and fresh, the steak was tender and moist , the onions and whiz set it off. it was delicious and certainly a great philly experience.

When I left I said , Thanks guys! they ALL yelled back Thanks!

Best Around – After reading the bad reviews on this site, I knew I had to say my piece.

These are the best cheesesteaks in Philly. They also have another location in Northeast Philly which is much bigger.

Anyway, they are simply amazing. Anyone who says differently doesn't know what a true cheesesteak should taste like (especially those out-of-towners)! Trust me, if you want a real cheesesteak and some delicious cheese fries to go with it, go to Jim's Steaks. You won't regret it!
