      Agreed, and I asked this question a month ago. Eat someplace along the way; 69th and Market is kinda desolate.

        There are a couple restaurants worth checking out. Pica's on West Chester Pike in Upper Darby serves good Italian food as well as pizza and cheesesteaks, there's a Korean BBQ restaurant across West Chester Pike from Pica's that we enjoy. Name escapes me right now. Another Italian restaurant is Bona Cucina 66 Sherbrook Blvd. (Marshall Rd.) in Upper Darby, PA 19082. All of these are close to the Tower and are casual.

          I've not been there in a few years, but Sabor Latino was enjoyable and fairly cheap. IIRC, it is fairly close to Tower Theatre. Here is the address and phone number (I'm assuming they are still in business):

          33 Garrett Rd
          Upper Darby, PA 19082
          (610) 352-8414

            nothing worthwhile near the Tower. Sabor Latino is sketchy and not great; best bet--stop along the way down to the Tower.
