5 South Philly Eateries That You Should Try

Since you already know about our property rentals and sales around South Philly, we thought it’d be nice to fill you in on some of the eateries that make South Philadelphia what it is. Here is a list of five (or six) spots that you have to check out while in town:


  • Chickie’s & Pete’s – If you are from the Philadelphia area, you already know about this sweet sports bar. They have many locations including Citizen’s Bank Park, The Philadelphia Airport, and of course, 1526 Packer Avenue in South Philly.

    Our tip – Obviously, you have to get their world-famous crab fries with melted American cheese. Additionally, their mussels and King Crab legs are equally as delicious.
  • Scannicchio’sThis spot is one of the best BYOB restaurants in the entire city.  Located at 2500 S. Broad & Porter, this Philly staple is known for their pasta, fish, and veal dishes. Scannicchio’s has a family feel, and is ideal for people who love good old fashioned Italian home cooking.
  • The Industry This bar is perfect for dates and group get togethers. Their brunch and dinner menus are filled with items that appeal to the masses. Address: 1401 E Moyamensing Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19147.

    Our recommendations – For brunch, try the shrimp & grits or their “Hillybilly Philly” fried chicken dish. For dinner, grab an Industry Burger of steak frites.

  • Uncle Oogie’sAlthough their name does not make you think about fine dining, but that’s not their angle anyway. Uncle Oogie’s has two South Philly locations (one on Oregon Ave and one on Snyder Ave) that are perfect for ordering delivery during Eagles and Flyers games. If you order from the Unc, be sure to get a pizza and some buffalo wings. Their menu is enormous – click here if you don’t believe us. 
  • Nick’s Roast BeefThe Original Nick’s Roast Beef has been serving top-notch roast beef sandwiches for over 75 years! You can find them on the corner of Jackson St. and South 20th St.



BONUS – HIDDEN GEM ALERT: Fountain Porter – 1601 South 10th St, Philadelphia, PA 19148 – Fountain has some of the best burgers in the entire city, and they are only $5 each!
