is no other Philadelphia restaurant that zero's in on my
stomach's soul more than Jack McDavid's Down Home Diner.
breakfast: sausage and biscuits with sawmill gravy, ham
and biscuits with red eye gravy, Low Country shrimp and
grits (Jack takes a few liberties here), Chipped Beef,
Corned Beef Hash - all down washable with 200 mile coffee.
One of the two best breakfasts in Philadelphia.
lunch and supper: skillet fried chicken, pulled pork
barbecue, brunswick stew, short ribs, Granny's
meatloaf. Not sure what happened to the chicken
fried steak or the chicken and dumplings. Most
was the only Philadelphian who ever ordered them.
Dang, I miss 'em.
