Recommended for the Margaritas we went on a Saturday and couldn't believe how busy it was. We didn't have to wait too long for a table and were quite pleased it was outside as inside was so pumping and noisy. My partner ordered the fajita salad in an edible bowl and it was huge. And tasty. Almost enough food two.... More

I stopped in for lunch and the shrimp and crab quesadilla was so delicious. Combine that with a margarita which was mediocre it was a nice lunch. The waiter, Peter who is also the bartender, was extremely nice and provided great service. I ate outside and that was also a positive. It's a local college restaurant but I found it... More

At first I was doubting the rave review I received about their Margarita's when it was served in a Martini glass. I quickly changed that thought process once I tasted my mango margarita. It was delicious.

The place is casual, fun, with a funky atmosphere. The food items I had were all good and I would have given this restaurant a decent review – except for the abysmal customer service. We arrived around 3:00 on a Sunday afternoon. It was not busy at that time so we could sit and work our way through our drinks... More

I am not exaggerating. The food was bad. The server was rude. The bathroom was gross. And there are only about 46,933 places on South St. alone to eat, most of which are awesome. Go somewhere else. You'll be happy that you did.

This is the second time we've had bad service and learned that there isn't anyone accountable. I will never come back since the owners don't care obviously. This review isn't about how dirty the place is so we wouldn't eat there. About 5 months ago we sat at the bar and the bartender who looks like John C. Reilly only... More

I don't get to Philly too much anymore, but since the late 80s friends and I often stopped here before Eagles games or big concerts like Pink Floyd or the Grateful Dead. So I arrive Sunday afternoon, June 19th during happy hour. We sit at the bar - the place is busy, friendly bartenders. My friend ordered her favorite -... More
