My family and I were in Philadelphia and on recommendation from a friend went to the Jim's Steak on North 62nd Street. We were the first customers to walk in and it smelled so good. I am from Maryland and I didn't think to look on-line before ordering "one wiz with", but the grill cook was gracious and helped me through it. We decided to drive to Geno's, since it has been featured on a food network that we watch, and try their cheese steak as well. The comparison: Jim's cheese steak was heavy with chopped steak, the bread was delicious warmed from the toaster, and it had the right amount of grease to make you feel the right kind of bad.:)...it was worth the wait. Geno's uses sliced steak. They were light on the meat and the sandwich had no weight on it. It took them seconds to throw the sandwich together and the bread was cold--not worth the hype at all. We unanimously agreed that Jim's Steaks cheese steaks and service were much better!

If you want the best Cheesesteak on the PLANET go to Original Jim's Steaks at 62nd & Noble in West Philly... Not on South Street and NOT in Springfield... Hands down the BEST in the United States

Not like they used to be. Owner must have no pride or moved on with the money they made when business thrived. Horrible service. Attitude is bad especially in delaware county location. Will not be back

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.
