Philly cheesesteak houses dot the county like drunks at the nearly departed Veterans Stadium-I mean, they're ubiquitous. But John's Philly is among the best, a squeeze of cheese and many peppers inside a firm loaf. If the meat were any juicier, it'd be a fruit. Thank owner John Carpenter for bringing along the cheesesteak's authentic zest from his native Philadelphia while leaving his city's beer stench back home.
