What you’re getting: Wings, R. B. McGillin's Sandwich, Mile High Meatloaf
The oldest restaurant (and bar) in Philadelphia probably comes as no surprise. At the same time the Pony Express was delivering its first message, “Pa” McGillin was serving the first drinks and food at The Bell in Hand (McGillin’s original name). It's been a Philly staple for the past 150 years and most likely will still be serving food and drinks long after we're all gone.
