    Perfect corner pub. Friendly staff and patrons. Easy late night takeout food too. Check out the tap setup.

    The Burrito Jesus is HUGE and really delicious! You'll definitely need a fork and a knife to eat it.

    Can't go wrong with "tot mess" or "rough night"...may be the best brunch in Philly? Also, Kurt is the bomb.

    My vegan nachos came with cheese. Not sure what happened there. However, the adobe lentils that come on said nachos were delicious.

    Stick to drinks for max success if you must go for pre-show drinks. The food here is not remotely acceptable.

    Order the tots, but stay put. It makes the institute people sad if they can't find you to give you your food.
