    The best shrimp and grits I have had outside grandma's kitchen... No frills or foo foo, just straight flavor.. And they even toss in an egg!

    The burger are, obviously, great. But, the whiskey king is just too much. Stick to the simple fixins and get some tots.

    I don't live in Philly, but this is easily one of my favorite bars in the world. Great list of whiskey, scotch and rye. Always there after dinner for a rye and cask ale.
