We watched Game 7 of the 2018 NBA Semifinals and it was awesome. Their wings were phenomenal, the Turkey BLT was the best thing I ate in Philly and my boyfriend loved the FF Burger. Definitely a great place for a game and some beers!

We were a group of 5 who arrived in the early evening. It had snowed that morning/afternoon and it seemed that everyone who had stayed indoors earlier had decided to venture out at the same time. Thus, we had to wait a bit to be...More
