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.

Sancho Pistola’s, the second bar from Joe Gunn, Casey Parker and Adan Trinidad is set to open this Wednesday at 19 West Girard Avenue. The team is swinging open the doors at 7 p.m.
The sequel to Jose Pistola’s will offer chef Trinidad free reign to come up with a menu, a menu that will heavily feature mole sauces. In fact, Trinidad’s mother will be making mole and sharing how she does it, today at 3 p.m.
So if you ever wanted to learn how to make mole from a real expert, today’s your lucky day.
