A stroll through Philly on a beautiful Monday morning led us past the welcoming gates of Manny Brown's, a little hole in the wall at 512 South Street. A good selection of draft beers, both local and seasonal were available, cold and poured by a very personable bar tender. Being Monday, the taps were just cleaned so the beer was great. We decided to have wings and they were by far the best I have ever had! Now I know everyone is a wing critic, but being a self professed "foodie" I would make the trip back just for them. Stop in, have a cold one and see for yourself. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

My wife and I have been going to Manny Brown's for years. Until recently, they have been in a time warp, e.g. the decor and furnishings never changed. Finally, they have begun to replace the outdated and wornout furnishings. The menu itself has remained the same, but, they have begun to offer specials. Some items are tasty, e.g. chicken quesadilla, mexican pizza, and fish and chips. The kitchen is sometimes hit or miss with their cooking. Same goes with the service. The one thing that remains constantly on the mark is their quite reasonable pricing and consequently value for the dollar. As long as your expectations are reasonable, I recommend that you give Manny Brown's a try.
