I discovered an article about Philadelphia Cheesesteaks written in 2002 by Craig LeBlan in the Philadelphia Inquirer’s weekend section called “The Ultimate Cheesesteak.”
They were framed in an office of a coworker.
She told me that in 2002 her son’s was a Senior at Lower Merion High School. His class did a project to find the best Philadelphia Cheesesteak.
John’s Roast Pork won their hearts, but the results were highly contested. Eventually a radio station did their own taste test, saying “What do a bunch of kids know about cheesesteaks?”
The results? John’s Roast Pork won again.
