Nick's Roast Beef of Old Philly Restaurant Review

: This dark and active bar has seating in the rear for everyone who comes in for the justifiably famous hand-carved hot roast beef. Deliciously rare, and dripping with juices, this has always been the quintessential roast beef sandwich. Of course, Nick’s offers lots of other things from nachos to pizza to meatball sandwiches, but why would you want anything but that roast beef? Wash it down with one of the imported beers on tap.
