20th and Jackson
Philadelphia, PA  (South Philly)


Philadelphia bar food at it's best.  The sign says Nick's Cafe, but everyone knows it as Nick's Roast Beef.  The Roast Beef sandwich is a classic.  Hand carved to order, sopped in natural juices, on a bun that is also dipped in the au jus.  I get the combo, with a slice of provolone.  

The rest of the menu follows suit.  Ham Sandwich or Ham Combo carved from a baked ham and Roast Pork or Pork Combo, carved from a pork roast.

A sandwich or two chased by a schooner of Rolling Rock.  Best downed at the bar, watching whatever game happens to be on the TV.
