Head over









Pistola’s Del Sur, from the guys behind Jose Pistola’s in Center City and Sancho Pistola’s in Fishtown, is just about ready to open on East Passyunk Avenue. It’s going into the former Palladino’s space at the end (or, beginning) of the South Philly restaurant strip, at 1934 E. Passyunk Avenue. Casey Parker, Joe Gunn, and chef Adan Trinidad have already found success with their loud, lively Mexican bar concept at the two other Pistola’s locations and Parker tells Eater the third will have a similar appeal.

Going off Jose Pistola’s and Sancho Pistola’s, the new bar will likely have a strong draft list, an interesting mix of American and imported bottles and cans, and lots of tequilas to go with some really good, comfortably inauthentic tacos. Both also serve brunch.

The trio gave fans a small peek at the Pistola’s Del Sur menu during the East Passyunk car show and street festival at the end of July. Get ready for the full reveal, because according to a Pistola’s Del Sur post on Instagram, the opening is just “days away”:

What Customers Say

  • We loved it. The food was amazing. The happy hour is great $15 pitchers of margaritas. The margaritas were very good. So if you like Mexican food you have to try this place you won't be disappointed.

    - Betty Zollo Kriegel

  • So great!!! Stopped by after the Eagles game to avoid traffic going back to the burbs and we had the queso fundido app with chorizo and mushrooms- wow! We each got tacos for dinner and they were awesome and the presentation was impressive! Can't wait to come back. The beer list was insane if you are into that too.

    - Kristi Epperson Serock

  • After reading rave reviews about this spot, we drove from Jersey to check it out and we were not disappointed. The vibe, music, service, food, and tequila was worth the drive. FRESH Mexican food with a twist--nothing commercial about it. Our server David was fantastic! The man knows his tequila! Food and drinks are plentiful--we recommend pitchers of the Margaritas (6 drinks out of it). We will definitely be back to get our Taco-Tequila fix!
