I have to admit, I was both curious and anxious to visit The Philadelphian. It is not often that you hear praises regarding an establishments menu by repeat clientele, while at the same time being told that the place is filthy and has a generally apathetic staff. In a nutshell, everything you've heard or read on Trip Advisor was correct. The sandwich, fries and onion rings were good, not great. The place was not filthy, it was borderline nauseating. Advice to all, carry out during less busy times of the day to minimize potentially noxious exposure to both the staff and environment. If you do stay, bring some Febreeze to mask the embedded smell of grease which will be permanently absorbed into your clothing when you leave. You may also want to bring some Clorox wipes for your hands, table, chair, food basket, hands, ketchup bottle, fry sauce bottle, hands, drink cup, oh and yeah, your hands. Nothing in this place has been cleaned in a millennium.
