We went with a large group last week on our trip to Philly. We had quite the mix of omnivores and herbivores and all loved the food. The Vegan Pickle Fried Chicken sandwich was off the charts. The atmosphere is fantastic if you love the feel of a local dive bar -- which I do. The decor is funky and... More

We had heard about Tattooed Mom from a friend and headed there right after landing in Philly. Very cool decor and awesome food and drinks. The Pickletini is what brought me back a second time. It is a definite place to visit when in Philly!

It was late, and the places I frequent in Philly had closed for dinner. Upon searching for vegan friendly dining choices that were still open, I came upon Tattooed Mom and decided to head over for their Vegan Philly Cheese Steak. South Street has a fun vibe, and Tattooed Mom certainly reflects its energy. The young lady who took my... More

Love this place. Cheap drinks good greasy bar food. The upstairs area is amazing and like a graffitti punk time capsule. Worth a visit!!!

This is a nice, unpretentious place despite its quirky decor and strange accompaniments! My partner and I loved our afternoon respite in this weird bar-- they also have food which is a huge plus, and daily specials too. They have a decent bar, but this is no cocktail haven, so go for the fun of it, and for a basic... More

Went twice during our trip once at lunchtime which was cool but a little bit quiet, we returned the same night and the place was much busier, some fabulous tables with very grand chairs and golden bar stools, unusual cocktails (pickle martini - tastes as it sounds and pop rocket with popping candy in the drink) and little cracker toys...

What an entertaining "hole in the wall!" We visited on Arts and Crafts Sunday and what fun that was. All the supplies to keep busy making some simple crafty things plus half price apps. The staff were all very helpful and attentive. They also provided some games to play. It's a place like I've never been before and was surprisingly... More

While in Philly, I contacted some transplants that used to live in Orlando. They told us they were at "Tattooed Mom" and to meet us there. A short walk later, and we found ourselves on the very interesting South Street. When we entered, we found a very, very laid back bar, with unique chairs and tables covered in stickers, toys,...
