Cafes & Restaurants

Geno’s Cheesesteaks

With so many great cafes and restaurants in the city, our PHL Airport parking company knows it can be hard to choose where to go. Here, we suggest a few of the most popular:

Johnny Brenda’s

If you like food, drinks, and music, then Johnny Brenda’s is the place to be. This restaurant-slash-music venue offers locals and visitors a great place to unwind, seven days a week. The menu focuses on fresh, locally-sourced food and includes a variety of seafood, vegetables, and meat for brunch, lunch, and dinner. When it comes to drinks, Johnny Brenda’s offers a list of beers and spirits from local Pennsylvania breweries and distilleries. And if you’re in the mood for dinner and dancing, you’ll find a DJ or musical artist playing nearly every night of the week.

Pat’s & Geno’s Cheesesteaks

Two of the most iconic names in Philly cheesesteaks are Pat’s King of Steaks and Geno’s Steaks. Located in South Philly, these two eateries are positioned across the street from one another and have sparked a friendly taste-test rivalry for years. Pat’s was founded in 1930 by two brothers (who are credited with the invention of the famous sandwich) while Geno’s opened in 1966. No matter which you choose, just remember to ask for yours with “whiz” or Provolone and “with” or “without” onions. For example: “one whiz with, one provolone without.”

The Sidecar Bar & Grille

This neighborhood gastropub in southwest Center City is known for its variety of unique New York-style pizzas. Here, you’ll find flavors like pear and gorgonzola, summer corn and long hots, and even a chocolate pizza with Nutella, hazelnuts, and coconut. The menu also offers sandwiches, burgers, soups, and salads, as well as a rotating lineup of craft beer, cocktails, and wine. To evoke the “neighborhood” feel, Sidecar boasts a laid-back atmosphere that features exposed brick, no-frills seating, humorous chalkboard signs, and an outdoor patio area.
