        unfortunately, I have to agree with you. we used to be regulars here due to proximity to our place- went last week and it was extremely underwhelming- they forgot several things I ordered on my burger and the burger itself tasted flat. the turkey burger used to be good, haven't tried it in a while.
        the beer list is -okay- but you could go a few miles down the road to the Daily Pint and see a real beer bar.

          Better yet, wait until Thursdays (I think) when the South Philly truck is parked outside the Daily Pint. Great cheesesteaks to go with the awesome beer selection.

            Have to agree with you on issues with the burger. On a recent visit I ordered a burger with swiss cheese and they mistakenly gave me blue cheese. I sent it back, and was re-served a burger with swiss cheese...well-done (I had asked for medium). It was so well-done that it was dry and flavorless, but I didn't have the time or inclination to send it back a second time. I don't know what I'll order next time I'm there (friends like it so I am bound to go again). I've had a salad that was good, but that was a while ago.

              I agree with you about the Pint, plus it's got a great whiskey selection, but Library is walking distance from me and the Pint requires the bus so I end up at Library more often.
