Please note that there are TWO Ishkabibble's on South: one is in the 500 block and the original is in 300 block. We went to the original, which is TINY. The front is a window offering street service. Inside is a counter that seats 7....More

All my uber and cab drivers told me to go eat there. Apparently it's where all the locals go. Very small place but the best Philly steak in Philly. In my opinion it crushes Geno's and Pat's which pretty much a travel channel tourist trap.

This isn't a tourist gimmick like Patsy's or Gino's. this place has two locations a few blocks from one another. They also have wonderful tasting French fries. If you ask them to make your sandwiches to go, they separate the meat and whiz from the...More

Stopped in to grab a couple of steaks to go. I did my regular whiz with, while the girlfriend did the mild provolone with. Everything about this place was solid, but not award winning. The portion and the price were respectable, as was the taste....More
