Sancho Pistola’s is a Mexican restaurant that happens to have a TV within view of every table, which makes it the perfect place to have dinner while you watch a game. There’s never really a huge crowd here (except during Happy Hour), so if you want to watch the Flyers lose in peace while you taste test a bunch of way-above-average tacos, this is the place to do it. They also have another location, Jose Pistola’s, in Rittenhouse that’s basically the same deal, so if you’re not a North Philly resident you should head there instead.
