4. Pizza Brain 2313 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125 (Fishtown)

What qualifications does Pizza Brain have to back up its claim of being a pizza museum? For one, it has a certificate from Guinness World Records that nods to its large collection of pizza-related memorabilia, which includes vintage comics and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figurines (those turtles do love their pizza). The kitchen slings out-there flavor combos with quirky names like the Bob Shieldsmoose, a brisket sandwich-like pie topped with blue cheese, mozzarella, and horseradish. There are simpler pizzas too, with names to match: the Tom is a cheese-less tomato pie, while the Jane comes with mozzarella, aged provolone, and grana padano.

11. Barcade 1114 Frankford Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19125 (Fishtown)

This joint is boldly mixing booze and quarters in a way that won't remind you of late nights in seedy frat basements. No, this Brooklyn-born venture is part bar and part arcade (obviously) that's in an abandoned electrical supply house. Complete with a 25-tap bar and 35 arcade games straight from the '80s that all cost only a quarter, Barcade's got it all going on.
