I agree.  I wasn't recommending it as a sports bar.  I don't think
they even try to be one.  I was just thinking of it as a place to have
some beers and food near Penn.

Real Philadelphians get their cheesesteaks from their corner pizza
place, and leave Jim's to the tourists and kids from the suburbs. :)

But having said that, I do like Jim's better than than the more famous
places in South Philly, and South Street's a good place to wander
around afterwards.

Another place that's been suggested offline is Tony Luke's.  There are
two that I know off -- the original at 2nd and Oregon, and Tony Luke's
Jr. at 18th and Chestnut.
