The South Philly corner of South 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue is the neon-heavy carnival setting of the Philly cheesesteak wars—and the destination of many a college road trip. The main contenders are Pat's King of Steaks (1237 E. Passyunk Ave.; 215-468-1546; and Geno's (1219 S. 9th St.; 215-389-0659;, but true connoisseurs wind up at John's, a sandwich shack squeezed between big-box stores just off the Delaware Expressway. It may look like a good place to dump a body, but this family business (since 1930) makes the real deal, folding cheese and onions into seasoned meat while it's still on the grill, then bundling it all into a seeded crusty roll from South Philly's Carangi bakery. The only drawback? John's hours are geared toward the working man, so while the joint opens at 6:45 a.m., the grill shuts down at 2:30. For those hankering for a nighttime fix, Pat's and Geno's are open 24 hours a day.

Open Mondays through Fridays 6:45 am to 2:30 pm.
