Last night marked the opening of Sancho Pistola’s, the second bar from Adan Trinidad, Joe Gunn and Casey Parker, the team behind Center City’s Jose Pistola’s. The bar at 19 W Girard Avenue is turning out serious Mexican dishes and serving up Pistola’s signature great beer.

The food here struck us as a bit more authentically Mexican than what we’ve enjoyed at Jose Pistola’s. Those most authentic dishes were also the most successful as I would rank the spicy pork tacos ahead of the Korean rib tacos and I’d also highly recommend the black bean soup, which was just what the doctor ordered on a very cold night. Well that and some mezcal.


Check out the full food and drink menus below. They're worth reading just for amusing notes in the descriptions. In addition to the food and drink menus, chalkboards highlight the custom cocktails, draft beer and raw bar selections.
