The area South of the airport offers few options for dining. What's one to do? Go to the neighborhood joints. Serving Philly 's Essingtonians since 1938, Lehman's is a time capsule. Driving up you think you may be going to a funeral home. The building is old, but Lehman's is a lively haunt. The bar is friendly and Jack will make you feel at home with hospitality, humor and conversation. He'll even let Boston area customers watch the Red Sox playoffs! The dining room is simple and homey. The Service TEAM excellent. The food? Home made applesauce , home cut French fries, huge entree portions. Wow. Should be offered Family Style. My colleagues ordered London Broil. Both platters could have fed families of four. Very well prepared. I had broiled Mushroom Caps filled with lump crab imperial. Six HUGE caps with generous crab. Each of us had Chicken Parmesan Soup. Unusually good. Weaknesses? Rolls were cold, dipping sauce (dicey marinara?) served with decent garlic bread was bland. One colleague on a previous visit had Veal Parmesan not with marinara but with BROWN MUSHROOM GRAVY! Sounds gross but the meal was spectacular. I really enjoyed the place and hope to return.
