Geno's Steaks

Geno's Steaks

Philadelphia, PA

Had to try Geno's after having Pat's! The people are nicer and the cheese whiz is a little different. My boyfriend preferred Pat's!

Restaurant Taqueria El Jarocho

Restaurant Taqueria El Jarocho

Philadelphia, PA

Best burrito I've had in Philadelphia. Really dig their creamy hot sauce, too.

Blue Belly BBQ

Blue Belly BBQ

Philadelphia, PA

Sky Cafe

Sky Cafe

Philadelphia, PA

Sky's noodle soups are unbeatably good (and unbeatably cheap), but don't forget to take something home with you, like the sweet/spicy Indonesian potato chips they sell at the register.
