When you want to get to know a community, look to its local restaurants. With the spotlight on Kansas City and Philadelphia, we visited two city standouts serving up their own style of meat and bringing people together in the process.
In Philadelphia, John’s Roast Pork has lived many lives—it was formerly known as The Shack, The Snyder Avenue Lunch Bar, and John’s Lunch. One thing that hasn’t changed is its location on the corner of Weccacoe and Snyder Avenue and its famous roast pork sandwich. While the roast pork sandwich may be its namesake, John’s Roast Pork is equally well known for its award-winning Philly Cheesesteak. It draws locals and tourists alike, with diners coming from near and far to get their hands on a foil-wrapped masterpiece.
Gates Barb-B-Q has been a pillar of Kansas City’s rich barbecue landscape since 1946. It’s a family owned business, known for its warm hospitality and hallmark barbecue sauce. Over the years, Gates Barb-B-Q has grown to five locations, while expanding to barbecue sauce manufacturing and distribution as well.
The other thing these local restaurants have in common, besides mouth-watering meat? A reliable and flexible restaurant POS system.
