     A Short Account of Our Long History

Established in 1921 by Rose McNally hard by the Route 23 Trolley turnout on the highest hill in Philadelphia. McNally's Quick Lunch was intended to simply provide a warm & hospitable respite to PRT trolley operators including her husband Hugh working the world's longest trolley line. Word of her simple but delicious fare quickly spread and soon Rose had plenty of customers. Today you'll find her great-granddaughters, Anne & Meg, just across the tracks, offering the same fresh meals and generous hospitality in the same identical building Rose & Hugh purchased in 1927 to accomodate their growing business. 

This Philadelphia landmark is located at 8634 Germantown Avenue in the city's Chestnut Hill  neighborhood, across from the old trolley turn. Look for the whitewashed building with cedar shakes over the wide green door and a welcome bench under a single coach light; when it's lit you're in luck. 

Inside you'll find a simple family-friendly pub. Dark, quiet and SMOKE-FREE since 1998.  A perfect setting to savor your pint of Guinness along with a cup of today's soup, a hearty sandwich and Meg's incredible homemade desserts.

Soups, salads, sandwiches and simple platters have been the mainstays now for 86 years.  View the full current menu to the right. There's also a Daily Special that includes a cup of soup and a soft beverage; could be a wrap of fresh baked turkey or a meatloaf & mashers plate, maybe even an enchilada. See this month's Daily Specials just below the tapped keg to your right.  Soups are scratch-made and there's a new choice each day. Expect Prime Rib with mashers every Monday night, tavern-made crab cakes & authentic Snapper soup every Friday and, of course, McNally's famous Chicken Corn Chowder each and every Saturday.


Philadelphia’s BIG LEAGUE Sandwich®

The Schmitter®, our one-of-a-kind sandwich that folks crave near and far.  Touted by some over the years as a sure help for everything from hitting home runs to coaxing overdue newborns into the world.  Referred to in press and now blogs as, “the ultimate cheese steak” and "the planet's greatest sandwich", this bit of genius from Hugh’s flat-top griddle has been served at the tavern for over forty years and is now available in major sports venues including Citizens Bank Park and Lincoln Financial Field.
