    Po boy grilled chicken sandwich was okay. I asked for no mayo but that was a mistake. It was too dry, so get the mayo!

    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. ;)

    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.

    If you are vegan, look no further than vegan fried chicken and their selection of vegan side dishes.

    Po' boys are really good here. If you get one, try the fried okra as your side. Very satisfying meal!

    Vegan sausage + Yards IPA + good music + dark atmosphere at the bar. These are a few of my favorite things. (F*ck whiskers on kittens.)

    One of the best places in Philadelphia for a few beers with friends and coworkers. The playlists are amazing, I always here a good 5 or more songs that I love.

    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

    Brunch is always amazing. Brisket hash is must try, not to mention the banana foster french toast. Oh, biscuit and gravy too!!

    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]

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

    Get the vegan pulled pork! But ask for the brioche bun if you're not vegan, it's way better.

    It isn’t just about the beer at the Khyber. The frozen mint juleps are among the most dangerous drinks out there.

    They recently remodeled (well I don't know if it still counts as recent) but order the smoked cheddar fries with the debris gravy. I want to live in that gravy.

    Service and crowd have gone way downhill since the changes in the last months while the prices went up. Still worth a stop sometimes... I guess.

    The Brisket Sandwich is fantastic... go with the Mac and Cheese as a side. Ask for extra barbecue sauce, all three types are awesome!
