Jim's South St.
Jim’s is a retro, counter-service place on South Street that's always in the conversation when talking about Philly’s best cheesesteaks. Because of that, there’s always going to be a line out the door, so you have two options. You could bring a beach chair, suck it up, and wait it out for this messy, cheesy sandwich. Or, if you’d rather sit down in a coffee shop and eat your sandwich at a table, you could head across the street to Milkboy and order your Jim’s cheesesteak there. They’ll usually deliver it to your table before you would have gotten to the front of the line at Jim’s anyway.
