937 E Passyunk Ave
Philadelphia, PA 19147
The unassuming, minimally labeled outside of this Passyunk place gives way to a classic, deep red pub on the inside where the Angus Burger reigns king. The small, laid-back crowd of regulars who know about Royal Tavern line the full-service bar in the afternoon and late night to get a bite of rare beef and bacon, caramelized onions, smoked gouda, pickled longhots, and chile mayonnaise. They don't dare forget the side of thick, crispy fries with a sprinkling of Old Bay, either.
