Never been to Philly before, what/where to eat?

sparrow | Jan 20, 2006 11:39 PM

I am visiting my brother at UPenn, so I will be in that area for a week and I will be eating out almost every meal.

I am not very interested in expensive dining (beyond $20 per person), so what should I try?

And is there anything that is not ridiculously far from the university?

I have heard a lot about deepfried oreos, but am on the fence about them. Are they really such an institution or is it all jibber jabber? I am hoping to go beyond the deepfried oreo on this trip.

I hear there's a strong "bring your own" booze culture in Philly. To what extent is this true and what is a normal corking fee?

Thanks, and I look forward to eating my way through your great city.
