    Nick's Roast Cafe: Nick's Roast Beef

    My parents have been bringing me here since I was a little kid. We used to come in the 'Ladies Entrance' off to the side. The bar entrance was for 'Men Only' in those days and even the back section had some of the first naked girlie posters I'd ever seen on the wall. Though they've done away with the 'art work' and the the sexist entrance, it's no wonder I still love these sandwiches to this very day. ;=>

    Favorite Dish: Yeah, yeah, yeah. It's really called Nick's Cafe, and they do have roast pork as well as ham, but everyone knows it as a roast beef joint. Try the roast beef combo; it's got a think slice of provolone melting over the juicy, melt in your mouth beef, all squeezed into a fresh kaiser roll. Wash it down with a Birch beer and you're really in Philly now.
