    If you visit Philly, no trip is complete without a visit to South Street. Have a few drinks at the piano bar(can't remember the name) walk along the water front, shop at Tower Records.  more »

    The Philadelphia pop-culture Street. Hara-Juku-ones, as well as a hippie thing here. Than when I visited three years ago is no longer safe as it seems. More police officers.

    Been coming here for over thirty years, so they must be doing something right. This is one of the earliest restaurants on South Street from the mid '70s. It has been the standard bearer for Greek food and culture when there was nothing else in centre city. You can enter through two doors: the left takes you along the open kitchen where you can look at many of the offerings and ask questions of the cooks, just like in many traditional Greek tavernas. The door on the right places you in a small bar and reception area which opens up into a cosy dining room. Your waitress will tell you about the daily specials, give you menus, and take your drink order. All the traditional hot and cold salads and starters, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts are on the menu.

    In my opinion, I can't imagine a gyro better than here. They use the best pita, the meat is sliced right in front of you and we'll it's just the best gyro. They do have other excellent food. Get the gyro.

    I've been going to this place since I was a little kid. The food is always delicious! It never disappoints!

    Best Greek restaurant in the Philadelphia area, hands down. Can't wait to go back!

Where to stay in Philadelphia

Most of Philadelphia's hotels cluster around the compact city center, ensuring quick and easy access to major tourist sights and activities. The only drawback to staying in this area is the lack of free parking, so if you're exploring by car, considering booking into a bed and breakfast in one of the city's residential blocks. Visitors planning on longer stays can also consider several apartment hotels, offering spacious furnished units with complimentary Wi-Fi, free bike rentals, and access to rooftop terraces.
