This was our second visit. Best margaritas in Philly! Outdoor seating in the summer. We sat at the bar for our meal and the bartender had a lot of personality which made the experience more enjoyable. The music was great. We will be back the next time we're craving a margarita and some fish tacos.

I love this restaurant. The food is good, the drinks are even better, and it is the best people watching place in all of Philadelphia. The margarita's are to die for--but be careful they are stronger than you think. The restaurant is encased in windows, so it's like a fishbowl view of the hippest part of South Street. In warmer...

Years ago Copa was one of the few places you could get a decent burger. Since then, other burger places have appeared on the scene but Copa still manages to hold its own. If you are into extreme health, Copa is not for you. Copa excells a great bar food. Note - they do not have any beers on tap... More

This is one of my favorite hangouts for food and drinks. Sometimes it gets crowded and the bathrooms are in a tight space but its worth it! The drinks are strong and the food is above average.

Had a great spur of the moment visit. Went with a couple of friends during happy hour. The service by Ted was outstanding. The food was great and the watermelon pineapple margaritas were fantastic.

We found this place by accident. The half-pound burgers are amazing! Try the conch fritters - they are delicious.

This place is in a busy area so there is always something going on. It is pretty laid back and the sitting outside is also a nice option. I wasn't impressed with the food. Not very many options if you are looking for something healthy, but I believe their appetizers are pretty popular. The service was great and we walked... More

Pretty pricey for the burger, but my daughter said it was good. I had 4 tacos, which left about 3 TBSP of grease in the basket (at least I didn't eat it!) They were good but nothing special. Waitress was really nice and helpful for us to locate a business we were looking for.

I went here for drinks with a few people the other day. The drinks were good and service adequate. It was cool that the cooks allowed me an off the menu order of "Loaded freis" with Chedder Cheese, Bacon, Sour Cream with a side of Ranch. I will defininatly go back to try their foods.
