Featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, this local favorite is tucked away in an old rowhome. Attached to a small beer garden, you can find outstanding food and tons of craft beer selections in the restaurant. Try the fried pickles!

My Takeout Preferences
There are no shortage of delivery options in the city, but there can be too many choices. Here's my favorite options for each type of food.
In my opinion, one of the best pizza places in the area and you can't have pizza without buffalo wings, there's are top notch too!
Bentoulis Pizza
2347 E Somerset St

Super cheap, right around the corner, and on point for the price. Don't try to go fancy here, stick with a burger or cheesesteak and a milkshake ordered at 2AM and you'll have a good night sleep. One of the few late night options on the weekend.
Steaks N' Shakes

For cheap chinese takeout, this is my number one spot. It's cash only and they don't use a delivery app, but it's so worth it. I've tried pretty much every chinese place in the neighborhood and this one is by far the best. They don't need to be on an app or take card because they are so good!

Our go-to place for delivery Indian food. There are some others in the neighborhood that are good, but this one seems to be the most consistently good.

Newer place that does late night, this place has some awesome sandwhiches. Pretty much all are delicious so just throw a dart at the menu and see what happens. You won't regret it.

Their location in Reading Terminal was named the best sandwhich in the country a few years ago, so yea just try it and thank me later. The signature sandwhich, Paesano, is so unbelievably good it's not fair.

Bars & Nightlife
Here are some local watering holes that I recommend.
Classic Philly dive bar with hipsters and locals. Super cheap, very low-key. Great spot to just sit at a quiet bar and have a drink with friends.
The Nut Hut Saloon
1873 Frankford Ave

This place will get packed on weekends and usually has a line. If you're looking for a livielier nightlife, definitely head down this way. There are four of far bars all around this intersection so bar hopping is ideal in this area. About a mile walk from the house or two subway stops.

The brewery at the end of the block also has a small beer garden and indoor bar where you can drink their awesome beers and cider. I'm a fan of Walt Whit and Kensinger. Definitely worth checking out.

This is a newer option in the neighborhood. A cool little beer garden with cheap food and beer. If you like their beer definitely worth checking out. I'd recommend saving your appetite for one of the better spots nearby as their food options are pretty bare bones and not worth it.
