Anthonys Caterer
I recently had my son's baptism luncheon at Anthony's Caterers at the IATSE Ballroom and had such an amazing experience. First off, this place is a hidden gem in South Philadelphia and the perfect place for an event. I will say that the venue was a bit nicer than I would have planned for a baptism and definitely more in line for an elegant wedding. However they had a wonderfully priced brunch menu that was equal to places half as nice.We had a brunch that included an omelet station and a buffet with french toast, bacon, sausage and potatoes, as well as, chicken piccata and penne a la vodka. I also added on a cheesesteak station as many of my guests were from out of town and would (and did) appreciate the "philly-experience".The food was great and the service was even better. We had young children at the event that were a little on the hyper side and the place was fine with me bringing in some games etc to keep them occupied and the staff even managed to continue smiling as my 3 year old son went around and blew out every candle that was lit in the place.We had an open bar for our guests in which we paid the final bill and the prices on that were reasonable as well (considering many places completely overcharge you for drinks etc).This place was wonderful and my husband and I will continue to tell everyone we know about what a great event they planned and delivered for us.I highly recommend you check them out for your next event.

Ms. Tootsie's Restaurant Bar Lounge
If you're really hungry, I would not suggest going to Ms. Tootsie. First off the wait for 2 ppl was 50 mins on a Friday evening. Once we were told that our table was ready the hostess took forever to find us a table after just deciding to seat us right by the door. There was no place settings, no candles or condiments on the table whatsoever. The server took forever to take our drink order. We both ordered the iced tea which was so watered down that it wasn't funny. The waiter seemed preoccupied so it took another wait for her to take our orders. We ordered no appetizers and we're not given any corn muffins until like 40 mins after. Our order took about 55 mins to come from the time we were seated to time the food actually got there. The bbq wings were burnt and it looked like they just covered it with bbq sauce. The potato salad was bland and needed salt BAD. The pork ribs were good but we're like warm at best like it was sitting for a while. The Mac and cheese was awesome while the portion size of the sweet potatoes was very small. The chances of me returning to Ms. Tootsie is slim to none. Also the bathrooms could be alot better maintained. For the amount of business this place does the conditions and service should be far superior than what we experienced. Highly disappointed. The waiter was not tipped because frankly she did nothing to help the situation either.

Penrose Diner
OMG Breakfast is the absolute best time. The food, the wait staff, and the casual settings. It was always a popular local place to dine, but recently the word is out. Stadium events for sports, concerts, marathon runs in the area are drawing many new customers, It use to be just the same old customer faces, now I feel like I am vacationing somewhere new. The two nearby hotels, have found out too, as the quests stream across the street from the Skyview Hotel @Penrose Ave and the Holiday Inn @10TH and Packer Ave. Prices are good, the food is fresh & tasty, the smiles and friendly staff make it a place like no other, a place feeling to me and my family all the comforts of HOME {and no one has to clean up the dishes} Great Place. Don't Miss it, even former President Clinton stopped by on his way to PHL Airport and ate a fine meal, that only an all American Diner can make!!!!

Country Cookin'
The food was OK as far as the flavor of it, the best part about the food was that it was nice and hot. The wait for your food is extremely long u shouldn't have to wait 1hr for 2 or 3 platters. The platters were also a little pricey, If the ambiance and customers service matched the food I probably wouldn't had a issue with the price.The young ladies behind the counter are OK they lack customer service etiquette, especially when answering the phones. I hate to say this but they're kind of ghetto in the restaurant, but so is the owner. She (the owner) uses profanity entirely to much, especially in front of her customers and on her personal social media account which she advertises her business on. Had I seen that before I went to her restaurant I would not have went. Just because your in the heart of the hood doesn't mean you have to run your business as such.

Liberty Choice
Really not one person left a review? Well I am not the one to write a review for good service and or food,or yet even write a bad review from a bad experience. But I do feel the need to leave a review for this place. They go up and beyond great customer service,prices,selection It is listed here as a restaurant,which is only half true,they are an entire store as well. Great hours as well,super speedy delivery,and they will bring anything the store has if asked. Need cat food and just don't feel like moving,just want to orde some grub and watch tv,no problem they will bring it with your meal,cigs? Not a problem just have your ID ready. Not going to mention the menu,its very large and everything i have had was perfect if not damn near. No body is perfect, but This place is the closest you will ever see.

Continental Midtown Restaurant
I so agree with the "Horrible Terrible Attitude towards Disabled People"! I just had lunch there with my father-in-law and his 89 year old mother-in-law. There was a 25 minute wait and she has trouble standing for that long, as you can imagine if you are 89 years old. The hostess told us we could sit at the bar while waiting. She sat down, and the bartender asked her to move since she was not going to eat at the bar and he wanted the space for his eating patrons. We offered to buy a drink (3 of us, 4 bar stools available, we are using 1 bar stool), but he said no, she had to stand unless she was eating. She has problems standing that long and almost passed out! He just didn't care. TERRIBLE HORRIBLE ATTITUDE TO DISABLED AND ELDERLY!!!!!

City Tap House
On, March 5th I sat at the Bar of City Tap and was served by all of the bartenders present. Yet, there was one who stood out. Eric, is his name. Eric, was very protective, considerate and aware of all that seemed to be transpiring on this Saturday night. With some things not being quite right, he made sure my friend and I were comfortable, and told us to give him the word if we felt like it was too much going on. We were pretty good at handling our own, but it was great to see that Eric took what he did to another level. It wasn't about just pouting drinks for patrons, but making sure they had an experience while dining at City Tap. He did this all with a smile and really added to our quick night out! Eric, YOU ROCK!!!

Trolley Car Diner
I am not a diner person, generally, but the Trolley Car Diner is not your average diner. It's really clean, for one! The food is absolutely delicious! Naturally, being a diner, breakfast is served all day, and my daughter and I typically go on evenings after work when I don't feel like cooking. The portions are huge, so she and I are able to share an order of pancakes! They also have turkey bacon and it doesn't cost extra. Oh, and I can not forget to tell you all about the milkshakes...thick, creamy and so good. So, so good! I haven't tried the "adult" milkshakes, yet, since I always share with my daughter, but I've heard those are amazing, too!

Cafette
The perfect place to take out of town guests! I remember reading a little paragraph like Cafette in the City Paper years ago, and searching, searching, searching to find it! It is located on a tiny residential street a block off of Germantown Avenue. Whenever my girlfriends come into town, I bring them here. The Sunday brunch menu is perfect. It's not too overwhelming, and there's enough diversity (french toast, salmon on bagel, salad) for everyone to appreciate it. The ambience is PERFECT for a group of girlfriends, especially in the spring or summer. You can sit out back on a little patio and chat over your thick cut french toast and coffee!

Liberty Choice
I have been ordering from Liberty Choice for quite some time , from when they first opened. The reason why I give the overall rating a 2 is because the customer service is horrible. The employees that answer the phone to take orders are extremely uneducated and rude , they will never give you the amount of total before hanging up. They used to have an All Day Breakfast menu that got rid of cause when I and multiple people I know would call around 11am and the cook or employees would say that it would take too long and that I should order lunch . The food is great but expect no customer appreciation or at least hospitality.
Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
