John's Roast Pork doesn't look like much. In fact, it looks rather unimpressive.
Eating at John's Roast Pork is not particularly easy. It's on the outskirts of town. It has odd hours. And it sometimes runs out of food.
However, it sure is worth it if you're lucky enough to make it here.
There is an art to ordering. If you're not getting something off the grill, you can cut in front of all of the people waiting on grill orders. Thus, if you just want a roast pork sandwich, you can get served nearly immediately. I assure you, though -- the cheesesteak is worth waiting a few minutes more!

Anthony Bourdain re JBF's operation prior to 2005. I noticed John's Roast Pork got their award in 2006.
