Buffalo chicken cheese steak.. that's all I have to say. Absolutely delicious! And the fries were amazing too! Everyone in our party got assorted sandwiches (various cheese steaks and a pulled pork sandwich) and we all enjoyed our meals. Nice selection of drinks and friendly service.

My husband was looking forward to visiting here as he is a big fan of the show "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." They had good prices, the food was delicious, but they were out of so much. We ordered two or three different things on a Saturday afternoon they had run out of.

Loved the atmosphere and the food and drinks were good, plus it's owned by the Always Sunny gang! $5 mimosas in a pint glass.

I read some reviews about rude staff so I was worried but went anyway due to my Always Sunny in Philadelphia obsession. Our waitress, Erica, was lovely and very attentive. My food was delicious although I would say a little overpriced, however I'm unsure if those are Philly prices. The decor is simple and includes Philadelphia touches throughout. The woman... More

This was once a great bar. However, it's now a south jersey tourist trap. There's not much left in olde city, but avoid this place and just look elsewhere.

Visited Philly with my wife and two sons. All three are huge It Always Sunny fans, so there wasn't really any other option. Beer was cold, food was plentiful and delicious, and the service was exceptional. The place is moderate size and filled up quickly around lunch, but the bartender and the waitress were at the top of their game... More

Had dinner here on our trip in the US from Australia. Come home and check my credit card and the restaurant added an additional $11 on the charges - even though we authorised a tip of 15% already. Have all the receipts and my bank is investigating. They are simply fraudsters. Served by Quentin, order # 54474 on 20 Oct.

As a fan of It's Always Sunny and now living in the Philadelphia burbs, how could I not visit this place?! It is definitely a divey-type bar/restaurant which I can appreciate. Maybe that is just the night-shifter in me coming out. I loved all the pictures placed all over the wall of the gang from the show. The beer list... More

As a fan of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia I felt I had to drink in this establishment. Don't expect it to be like Paddy's Pub. I had an hour or two to kill before meeting a friend so I went in. The choice in beer was brilliant, the barmaid was very friendly and helpful. It's the sort of place... More

Small place with decent beer and cocktail list. We were thinking of a snack but apps were too pricy ($7 for just French fries?) so it was a comfortable place to hang out before we were ready to move on to the next stop.
