Nothing bad or great about this place. Atmosphere is eclectic and service is good. Food is tasty but nothing special. Still good place to go for a fast meal near U Penn

We were visiting the University of Pennsylvania from out-of-town and the wonderful aroma of BBQ drew us inside. We were not disappointed. We tried the pulled pork, the chicken and the dry rub wings. All of it was fantastic. The BBQ sauce was wonderful, too....More
