Maybe you think you know Frankford Avenue. You’ve met friends for table tennis, jenga and liters of German beer at Stephen Starr’s Frankford Hall. You’ve gotten the high score on Asteroids at Barcade. Maybe even checked out the pizza and pizza museum that is Pizza Brain. But even 12 years after William Reed took over Johnny Brenda’s and made it the Avenue’s shining welcome beacon, the best days for the corridor are still ahead of it.
Our field guide takes you on an eating and drinking tour of the rest of the best on the food mecca that is the Frankford Avenue — a full day’s worth of delicious debauchery.
Root beer floats are great. When you’re a kid and it’s summertime and it’s hot, there are few things better than that classic soda, ice cream combo. But when you’re an adult it can get better. What’s better than root beer? Real beer.
This is where the folks at Joe’s Steaks + Soda Shop and Bottle Bar East come in with their timely collaboration: beer floats.
