We visited one night for dinner and our waiter was great. Food came out pretty quickly and was hot. The pizza we ordered was tasty but we also ordered wings. The wings were dry and almost burned. We only tried a few and left the rest. Not sure what happened with the wings, but we won’t be going back. Other places in town are much better for pizza and wings.

It was good fun for our friends - beer and pizza and some deep discussions about life. Ha ha. The only surprising part was that they dont have drinks menu. My server said we have everything just name it. I randomly asked for Mohito and she came back saying that they don't have mint leaves.

What a find! Naturally it’s surrounded by several colleges and universities, so this vintage sports bar has a superb, time-honored heritage, reflected in huge sports caricatures, photographs, and memorabilia on all the walls.

Nina, the awesome bartender, suggested pizza as a popular patron choice. We opted for a pepperoni and sausage combo pizza. The crust is definitely one of the best we’ve had anywhere! Fluffy inside, but crisp on the outside. Though the crust is nice and thin in the center, there was NO slice “floppiness.” All the ingredients were just right, and the extra cheese to sprinkle on yourself was freshly grated.

I expect a sports bar to have good “pub grub,” but I did not expect to find the best pizza anywhere in downtown Philadelphia!

Since 1977 when I first started watching football on the multitudes of screens the food has been great and reasonably priced. A great eat and meet place in South Phili !!
