John's Pizza (Frazer) - Cheesesteak

Appears a 12" roll that is packed. I wouldn't say "overflowing" but it's got a good amount of meat piled in the roll. Sauteed, chopped onions sharing space with the thinly sliced sirloin & cheese. - 4

The I suspected(& confirmed), a Conshy roll. I'd be willing to say that 75% of the better steak sandwich places in the 'burbs use the Conshohocken steak sandwich rolls. I've been through the drill with this roll a few times. See any of my other posts. - 4

The meat is thinly sliced sirloin that is cooked just enough where it retains it's juiciness and tenderness. It seems to be seasoned nicely too. It's a good mix of mild spice, pepper, and oil coming through. - 3.5

The cheese is properly executed, here. It's abundant enough to stand out and touch most of the strips of shaved beef. - 4

Overall, this is one of the best cheesesteaks in the Main Line, Lancaster Avenue area. It's certainly the best place to get a cheesesteak in Frazer, or Malvern. I remember going to the old, smaller place back when I was a kid. Still the same sandwich that I remember. People come from surrounding areas to grab this sandwich. Get some. - 4

Total Score: 3.9/5

John's is the best cheesesteak in the Philadelphia area and, thus, the planet. I've eaten at hundreds of places and never had a better one.

Second place is the late, lamented Lubrano's in Pottstown, that shut down around 1990. An overflowing cheesesteak in a dank strip mall location served up by a redhead with an accent. What could be better?
