NICK'S CHARCOAL PIT
1242 Snyder, Corner 13th
Lunch and Dinner
One of the great things about Philadelphia. I've been living here for thirty years. Nick's Charcoal Pit has been around for ten years. And we haven't met. Not only is there another great meal around the bend, there are so many great undiscovered five grease stain places within ten blocks, not to mention Philadelphia's mysterious Northeast.
The Nick's special is one great sandwich. Charcoal broiled filet cooked a perfect medium rare, spinach and cheese on Sarcone's seed breaded.
The hot dog is as greasy good as it gets. I had a combo - charcoal grilled hot dog, bacon and cheez-whiz. Onion rings are batter dipped and some of the best in the city.
I need to get back. Nick's Charcoal Pit has won all sorts of awards for their ribs. They are also kinda proud of their wings.
