Philly has lot's of outdoor dinning but most have you crammed along a sidewalk with people walking by and cars parked along the curb. Jon's has one of Philly's best outdoor venues in the form of a spacious raised patio as big as their indoor restaurant that gets you away from the traffic but let's you catch all the South... More

Okay, forget the restaurant - I would go here just to say I visited Larry Fine's Birthplace. We were looking for Philly cheese steaks and when I saw the sign, we ended our search. The hoagies were good, and the french fries as great as any I've ever had. The place was crowded on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, so people... More

Stopped while shopping and sight seeing on South Street. Service was very good. Apple, walnut, chicken salad was really good. Large portion size. Two others had burgers and enjoyed them. Sat outside. Large area. Plenty of space. Would stop again.

We stumpled upon this place during a day trip, looking for some lunch of the cheesy variety. The staff was friendly and accommodated us (even with a baby) swiftly. The food was very good all around, top mark for the restaurant would have been earned had the restrooms been a bit more op to scratch.

I was recommended the place by a mice police officer who strongly advised I do not hit the place I had found online at first (bad neighborhood and apparently bad food). Let's say I'll definitely ask more locals before going anywhere for food. I had their house philly cheesesteack and it was delicious. Also huge portion, and the fries were... More

We stumbled upon this place on accident a couple years ago when we visited Philly. The weather was nice and we wanted to enjoy a beverage outdoors and we walked by this place and saw they had a nice patio. The food was great, there is a large beer selection and the people treat you like you've been there 100... More

We were headed to Jim's for a cheesesteak, as we had been there before but the line was out the door and down the street, so we wondered into Jon's. I actually preferred their Philly cheesesteak to Jim's as you could order it more loosely, great service, they give credit to Larry of the 3 Stooges fame also.

We were there on a very hot day, so we didn't have the chance to sit upstairs at their rooftop tables, but the inside was lively and friendly. The waiter was most helpful in suggesting several different types of beers for us, and he was stop-on. Our nacho platter was loaded with everything and our hummus was creamy and delicious... More

Strolled in here and was surprised in a good way. It's on South Street, which can be kitschy and tacky. But Jon's was just a good bar with good food. Ordered a walnut/cranberry/grilled chicken salad, which isn't exactly what comes to mind when one thinks bar food. This salad was great. Large, fresh, hearty, tasty. I really enjoyed it. Plenty...
