A fixture neighborhood bar on Robinson Street in the Fan since 1982, Buddy’s Place began a new era on January 15th.

Cheesesteaks, burgers, fries, and subs: the staples of a growing college student. Four Brother’s Bistro and Grill is open at the corner of Lombardy and Broad and has a menu that–other than focused on feeding college kids–draws inspiration from “New York Deli’s and Philadelphia Cheesesteaks.” Note that all of the brothers pictured in the logo have beards.
