Shank’s, that little place that you drive by on the way to Target that looks like a rest stop, is a sleeper option for one of the better pork sandwiches in the city. A South Philly original, Shank's relocated to that lonely strip of Columbus Blvd in 2009, and brought with it the sandwiches that have made it a city favorite since 1962. Its Roast Pork Italiano has the right ratio of ingredients, served on a seeded roll that's worth the extra 50 cents.
