Living in Orange County I’ve always assumed that most cheese steaks were nothing more than roast beef smothered in undercooked onions and peppers and covered with whatever cheese the cook had lying around. After paying a visit to John’s Philly Grille in Anaheim, my opinion has been forever shattered.
The thicker than deli cut [but thinner than skirt] steak is tender, juicy and full of flavor. The peppers snap nicely while the grilled onions almost melt when they hit your tongue. Now I’m beginning to see what the folks in Philly are all retarded over. The tastes blend together nicely and each sandwich is prepared with loving care.
They also manage to keep a nice selection of bottled sodas in the cooler and a decent sized Tasty Kakes display on hand. The televisions throughout the resturant play sports and only sports. It should be noted that if Philadelphia has a game that day, all TVs will be dedicated to it. If you’re easily irritated by vocal but otherwise harmless sports fans, get your order “to go”. An average lunch for two should set you back around $14 with beverages and sides. 1784 S. Euclid Ave, Anaheim, 714.491.2733
