Tried the chef salad (twice in one week). Both times the salad was a very nice size and definitely worth the value. Very tasty! Could only eat part of it so each was good for 2 lunches for me. Had to wait a while going on a Friday but if you go with someone, the time passes more quickly. YUM!

Stopped for lunch on my way to the Capitol. Glad I did! It's not fast, but great character, great fries and best burger ever. I'm not sure what they do, but the burger has a crust on the outside and yummy goodness all over. Highly recommended.

Heard a lot of great things about Jackson House before I had anything from there. Actually had the cheeseburger delivered to me from one of my co-workers and was very pleased from the experience. Seasoned perfectly and charred just right. Make it how you like it and you wont have anything better than if you make it at your own... More

I had the Jimmy Pizzo's Bada Bing... and it was fantastic. The sharp provolone was fantastic. I wish I would have gotten some pepper shooters... that's my only regret. You don't go there for the ambiance and they are open a limited time, so know what you want when it's time to order. It was a super hot day and... More

You won't be disappointed, this little place has the best Italian hoagies and best hamburgers you will ever have! The only problem are their hours; Monday-Friday 10-2, so take a long lunch hour and have the best hoagie or burger and you don't even have to drive to Philadelphia!

This small hole in the wall very Italian sandwich shop , ran for years by the same couple, operates only Monday – Friday 10:30AM to 2:00 PM, (Grill closes at 1:40, and they are not kidding). Closed all state and federal holidays. So a person might ask how a little place can possibly stay in business for years operating 3.5... More

Although this place may look a little scary when you drive by it's the best "hole in the wall' restaurant for burgers in the area! They really care about their craft and it's definitely a place you don't want to miss. The burgers are outstanding and so are the cheese steaks! Also the fries are delicious too! You just gotta"...

You just don't find places like this anymore. The outside looks like a total whole in the wall, and the inside is nothing special. However, the magic happens back in the kitchen. When I showed up there was a line to the front door, which tells you this place is popular during lunch time. It took me 30 minutes to... More

I've been trying to get to this place for months and was super excited to get the chance this afternoon. The place itself is so tiny leading into a back room where you order. There are signs all over about the greatness of South Philly. The service was quick, friendly, and to the point skipping all the nonsense. The boyfriend... More
