    If you can't guess the wifi password, you're going to have to find an ATM nearby.

    Friendly local crowd, and interesting art on the wall. Also, spotlessly clean and bright restroom.

    It is the quintessential dive bar. A true drinking establishment.

    The mural of famous Franks (including Frank Zappa & Benjamin Franklin) now includes Pope Francis. Admire the art, then step into the iconic bar, which draws patrons with cheap beer & a great jukebox. Read more

    One of the best dive bars in the city. Cash only, though.

    Great dive bar. They have a crazy cheap special: $2.50 for a shot and a 7 oz beer.

    Kamikaze is delicious and cheap as hell, as ppl have said: $2.50 for shot and small High Life or Rolling Rock.

    Just down the street from Amis, Peter McAndrews takes Tony to Dirty Frank’s, where they meet up with another local chef, Han Chiang.

    This place is the birthplace of the Tidal Wave shot. You convince somebody to do 1 by saying they can't handle it, and then when they do you splash them in the face with water and yell "tidal wave!!"

    According to Charlie from It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia a waitress here previously dated Sweet Dee's thieving boyfriend. If you find her, order a pitcher and play a few songs on the juke box.

    It’s aptly named, the bartenders are always angry, they don’t take credit cards, the beer list is nothing special. It’s dark and crowded and it has dartboards. It’s the best dive bar in town.

    Not much stands out about this place, well, except for the heavy drinking, mediocre menu and the fact that the place lives up to its name. And that's why it's the best dive bar in town. Read more

    Bathroom by the juke box is better. Also, this place is rad.

    Out front, snap a picture of the Frank-filled mural (Sinatra, Zappa, and Saint Francis of Assisi all in the same place). Then get Frank's special: a pony Rolling Rock or High Life and a kamikaze shot.

    No frills. Cheap drinks. And eccentric regulars. This is what makes Frank's an institution for every color of the rainbow.

    The bartenders work their way around the Bar in an orderly fashion so be patient they will get to you.

    Before you get too intoxicated and your eyes cross, check out the art on the far wall.

    If you're a lady or a shy guy, have someone watch the bathroom door for you on the north side of the bar. Or just choose the other one!
