A group of us popped in here for brunch and were pleasantly surprised! I would have never expected to find such delicious brunch in a pub. The prices were very reasonable and the service and food quality was amazing. Definitely have to try the beignets and the Cafe Au Lait. Amazing!! We will definitely be back!

Snow...it's snowing in Philly. So....I bought their hamburger and a local craft beer. It still has the same charm from years ago. It's dark inside, but a good place to duck into for a beer and food.

Its narrow, dark and old. This is in every way it's perfect identity, and the draft list is great. We didn't have any issues with it being too loud, and the draft list is great. The service was prompt, with clean taps and glassware. We didn't eat there, but the food that we saw go past looked and smelled great.

If you like your drinks strong, your company young and your music loud, this is the place for you. The Near Eastern community turns out with big smiles.

In for a late breakfast and a great Bloody Mary. Tough place for any type of conversation, the noise is crushing. But the service is still great and the food is always interesting. Try the Banana fosters and Breakfast # 5. The Khyber has been around forever, and should not be missed. Forget the noise and enjoy the experience.

I spent many many nights at the Khyber when it was a divey music venue. I miss those days so much! When I heard it was going to be a restaurant from now on I was cranky and skeptical. But I have to say, they did it right. The food is fantastic southern style bar food and reasonably priced (mostly.... More

My wife and I went to Khyber Pass for dinner one evening. We had been on a run of evaluating fried chicken in local restaurants. She got the brisket mashed potatoes and coleslaw and called it the best brisket she has ever had. That experience includes three different, well known places in Memphis. My fried chicken was excellent. The skin... More

The outside almost looks like a Harry Potter portal, with an ancient door, a narrow brick and slate exterior. A hopping place on a Saturday evening, the bar had an eclectic offering of beers. We ate dinner and wow, what great food! The onion rings were some of the best I've had, lighly battered with great seasoning. My son had... More
