McNally’s first opened in the 1920s as a pit stop for travelers and operators on the Route 23 trolley. Since then it’s given the world its signature, now-legendary Schimmter: a steak-and-grilled-salami sandwich coined in the ‘60s. Beyond the Schmitter, though, McNally’s offers a daily update on its beer taps, which range from imported stouts and lagers to locally brewed favorites and standard domestics. If you’re interested in the grub, the Schmitter is only one of several larger-than-life sandwiches on the menu, plus chowder, chili, and griddle specialties.
McNally’s first opened in 1921 as a pit stop for travelers and operators on the Route 23 trolley. Housed in a white-washed building with an iconic green door, an outdoor coach light—harkening back to its trolley stop days—signals when it’s open for business. The simple menu of sandwiches, soups, and other classic dishes from the grill remains today, and the eatery is also home to the signature, now-legendary Schimmter: a sandwich with steak and grilled salami that’s name was coined in the ‘60s. Though always popular, the sandwich hit its big break when the Eagles incorporated it into the food options at Lincoln Financial Field. It later made it to Super Bowl XXXIX and a couple of World Series, but McNally’s itself is the real place to try an original.
