  • Jim's Steaks is said to be one of the best places in Philadelphia for cheesesteaks. As seen on Man v Food.
  • Forget Pat's and Geno's, Jim's is where it is at.
  • You better know what you want... Jim's staff doesn't give a shit.
  • Best Cheesesteak in Philly!!!
  • Anyone who thinks this line is worth it is clearly a tourist. There's about 90 other places on South Street that make a decent steak without an aggravatingly long wait.
  • Forget the others. This is the best cheesesteak in the city.
  • Wiz and onions rule
  • One of the best places to have a Philly cheesesteak. The "cheese" that comes on the sandwich is actually Cheez Whiz, so if you want American or provolone, let them know!
  • This place is frequented by drunks and tourists. It's dirty, the staff is rude and the steaks are dry. Have fun.
  • Don't waste your time waiting in line for a cheese steak here
  • Forget Pats and Genos. Jims is life. Eat one half of your cheesesteak over the other half so the grease doesnt get lost because that stuff is pure concentrated flavor! Get a Yuengling too!
  • Don't forget to put mustard on your cheesesteak, it makes a huge difference!
  • One of Philly's most popular local cheesesteak joints gives you the opportunity to try "South Street Sushi" - a Jim's steak rolled into a slice of neighboring Lorenzo's pizza. Hold the onions...
  • Provolone and American cheeses, onions, mushrooms and peppers. Def. the best cheesesteak in Philly. #Hercules
  • bleach and grease tourist trap hell
  • My favorite steak!
  • Great spot for a classic Philly Cheesesteak. Tons of famous autographs line the walls here. The grill cook was hilarious and extremely nice.
  • Best cheesesteak out of the major ones (Pat's, Geno's, Tony Luke's, Jim's)
  • Had the traditional cheese steak and it was really good! Highly recommend!
  • Best in Philly. Screw Pat and Gino's!
