Nick's Original Roast Beef

After hearing about this place for years, I stopped by last Saturday to give their roast beef sandwich a try. In a word, fabulous!

Located in S Philly at 20th and Jackson (1 block north of Passyunk), I got very lucky with parking on the corner in the neighborhood, I doubt that will not happen again. Walked in and
ordered a carryout from the bartender. Roast Beef combo (with cheese) was $6.15 plus tax.

The roast beef was simply awesome, served a little bit of au jus and the melted cheese made this a perfect combination. A side of horseradish and pepper rings were optional.

Next time, I plan on eating inside, drinking beer and ordering more than just the beef. Is anything else recommended at Nick's? Or maybe I'll just order 2 sandwiches, they are that good!
