Also here are some FANTASTIC food options. They may not be touristy, but they are in my opinion some of the best Philly has to offer: Good Authentic Italian Restaurant: The Saloon Restaurant Best Philly Cheesteak (imo, sorry alorac): Jim's Steaks on South Street I guess it depends on what time you get to Jims. We are usually there after a night out so it is late and there is a line around the corner. With long lines that pile gets turned over in less then five minutes. But I can see if you are there at a slow time (if there is a slow time) that pile may last a little longer. Pastries: Isgro And as PPs have mentioned, if you are a foodie you HAVE TO check out The Reading Terminal Market. Have fun!
