    Its latest iteration is a cozy bar putting out a menu full of New Orleans flavors that are consistently tremendous. The menu is just as friendly to vegans as it is to meat-eaters. [Eater 38 Member]

    Wasn't sure what I was getting myself into when looking for vegan food. Boy was I surprised! All options were clearly marked and there were plenty of items to choose from. Delicious. Recommend.

    The half-fried oyster, half fried shrimp po-boy is basically it. You don't need to taste anything else ever anymore. So good.

    The po'boys will feed even the hungriest diner. I get three meals out of one. The bartenders and servers are great and have low turn over. They will remember you (for better or worse!)

    Pulled Pork nachos are the best nachos I've ever had in my life! Sweet potato fries with debri are also pretty delish. Not for those on a diet

    The wings are brined, smoked, grilled, then fried. These juicy lil bastards make my mouth water. I go for the combo, but my favorite are the habanero.

    Staking its claim as Philly’s “best beer bar”, they’re running 20 taps w/ serious suds like Russian River Damnation, and North Coast Brother Thelonius. Bonus: Great daily specials. Read more

    Pulled pork? Yes please. Ribs? Yes, I think I'll have those too. Chicken? How can I say no? Maybe a little brisket too? Fine, but no more after that. Oh, and maybe just a little mac-n-cheese. ;)
