198 "Casual Weeknight Dinner" restaurants in Philadelphia.
A good casual weeknight dinner spot is hard to find. It’s a step above a make-your-own bowl place, but not somewhere you’ll need a reservation. It shouldn’t be too expensive, you should be able to talk instead of shout, and your dinner shouldn’t take more than an hour. These spots do it all.
This Southern spot in Northern Liberties serves excellent fried chicken - get your wings with their hot honey sauce.
Come to Dienner's in Reading Terminal Market for the rotisserie wings that are tender and covered in a spicy rub.
This pub in Northeast Philly has excellent garlic wings - the sauce is satisfyingly spicy and the meat falls right off the bone.
For over 40 years, Byrne’s Tavern has been a go-to place for bar food in Port Richmond.
You can choose from ten different chicken wing options at this University City restaurant, but the garlic parmesan ones are our favorite.
The garlic soy wings from this Korean spot in East Oak Lane are definitely worth the trip to Cheltenham Avenue if you don’t live nearby.
