Chickies’s and Pete’s is North America’s best sports bar

    Best known in Philadelphia for the trademarked crab fries, Chickie’s and Pete’s now has more bragging rights: Best Sports Bar in North America.

    The Northeast Philly-based restaurant/bar has its flagship near South Philadelphia’s sports stadiums, and other locations in the city and South Jersey, but its reach is now national with this new ranking from ESPN Magazine.

    The mag calls Chickie’s ““THE destination for not only fans of Philly but fans from EVERY visiting team,” as uwishunu mentions — deserved praise for any bar that shuttles customers to and from the stadiums.
