Been going to Jim's since I was 17 I'm now 44. Took my kids today and what a disapointment. Steak was overcooked, dry, flavorless and grille needed to be cleaned. Best part is it set me back $30.00 for 3 cheesesteaks 3 bags of chips an pepsis...NO THANKS

As others posted, Philly locals suggested Jim's as the best Cheesesteak. REALLY?? It makes me wonder just how bad the other restaurants are. Clearly, the locals are severely deprived of a good cheesesteak which can be found in MD. The "cooks" would much rather talk amongst themselves about all the young ladies that come in and out of the restaurant. All I wanted to do was get my food, get my lady and leave. Of course, you'll have to try it while your in Philly but know I tried to save your taste buds!! All around very disappointing. Honestly.

While visiting Philly I was told "You have to eat a Cheese Steak at Jim's" I did and it was disappointing, the line was long and not at all worth the wait. The meat was dry and lacking of any real taste of beef, maybe it was horse meat, I dunno , but if the best Cheese Steak is to be had at Jim's it was with Great foresight that the founding fathers decided that Washington DC be the Capital of the country, a better Cheese Steak can be had closer in Bethesda,MD at South Street Steaks.. Word to the Wise, EAT IN DC!! Ugh!!

The cheesesteak was average, nothing too great to be waiting on line for though...I've had better quality and taste in cheesesteaks. Jim's isn't worth the visit. No hypes.

Forget about Pat's and Ginos. We were only visiting Philly for the night and watned genuine, yummy steaks. Locals suggested Jims over the rest. They were right. Delicious cheesesteaks, cooked just right, and perfect with a Yuengling (we don't have it in Illinois). Great deal, beers were only 2.5 a piece, and cheesesteaks ranged from 7-9. Would love to go back someday!!

Clearly the best cheesesteak stop in Philly. Higher quality meat than the competitors and fresh Amoroso rolls. I think people are starting to catch on to this place as the lines seem to be getting longer and more frequent over the past 6 years I've been going. Bring your sandwich upstairs for a unique look at South Street and the celebrity/athlete autographs that litter the walls.

Pat's/Geno's use subpar meat because they have the famous name and will get tourists anyway. Jim's definitely has a way better cheesesteak
