|A close look at the roast pork and spinach sandwich from John's Roast Pork in Philadelphia|
John's Roast Pork has been on many TV food shows, including Adam Richman's Best Sandwich in America and Food Feuds. It's also featured in both of these excellent road food books --
Walk inside to order at John's Roast Pork. There are benches outside, but everyone I saw (myself included) was getting their sandwiches to go for later in the day. After all, it was only 9:30 in the morning. (John's opens really early.)
I ordered the large size of the roast pork with spinach. As soon as I picked up my to-go order, I knew I had just received a really big sandwich. (As it turns out, I could only eat half for lunch, and saved the other half for dinner.)
The pork is very juicy, and seasoned nicely. It has a lot of flavor. (It's not as peppery as the roast pork at Tony Luke's.)

One thing that I noticed was the sesame seed bun. That's not something you usually see on a cheesesteak.
There's pickles, peppers, mayo, mustard, and hot sauce outside to add to your sandwich. The hot sauce went really well on the pork.
TIP: It's cash only at John's Roast Pork. And they close early in the afternoon so pick up your sandwich before they close.
