Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Situated in a renovated diner car that was built in 1952, this is perhaps the hippest—and booziest diner experience in Philadelphia, thanks to the fact that it’s outfitted with a full bar. But don’t let the trend factor full ya. The menu here is traditional diner all the way, with plates that run the gamut from meat loaf and burgers to turkey BLTs and breakfast fare like waffles, omelettes and French toast. DJs come in on the weekends and sometimes throughout the week to supply tunes while you gorge, and there’s a cool outdoor beer garden out back that gives off Alice in Wonderland vibes with its colorful tables, quirky seating repurposed from old kegs and trippy art hanging all around.
