Chickie’s & Pete’s is a South Phill sports bar where the beer comes in towers and the wings are hot and messy as hell. They’ve got a surprisingly excellent lobster roll and the crab fries are addictive, but if you’ve been to a stadium, airport, or the boardwalk, you probably knew that already. No dress code, but you’re on your own if you roll up wearing a Cowboy’s jersey.
