There's something special about the marriage of a great restaurant and a great bar. Going out for dinner in Philadelphia becomes all that much better when you can also linger afterwards for drinks and good conversation. Sancho Pistola's offers patrons just such an environment in its Fishtown location.
Just steps from the El on Girard Avenue, this new brainchild of partners Casey Parker, Joe Gunn and Adan Trinidad adds a touch of Mexican class to the up-and-coming Fishtown neighborhood. Sancho Pistola's combines tasty Mexican entrees and appetizers with a substantial beverage menu to produce the perfect place to take friends for an evening out. Choice craft beers as well as inventive cocktails make this location, as well as Jose Pistola's in Center City, well worth a visit (or two).

What can you expect from the menu at Sancho Pistola's? Everything from pico de gallo to delicious land taco choices such as Korean rib, chicken tinga and pork belly to fish tacos, soups, salads and what have been described as the best nachos this side of Fishtown.
If you're visiting late at night, you'll be happy to know that in addition to delicious beverage options, you can also indulge in half-price nachos and half-price land tacos. Life just got a little bit better knowing this!
The kitchen at Sancho Pistola's opens weekdays at 4 p.m. to start satisfying your Mexican cravings and 11 a.m. on weekends. The restaurant stays open until 1 a.m. The bar is open until 2 a.m.
Sancho's has 10 taps housing local and craft beers and a stockload of bottled options to please any palate. Not a beer person? Order up a cocktail with one of their tequila or mezcals as the starring player and see what all of the fuss is about.
The Cartel combines ingredients such as mexical, ginger and yuzu, while the Big Mex takes house-infused jalepeno tequila, mezcal, sour apple, strawberry, lime and agave nectar and mixes them together to obtain an awesome cocktail option. Drinks like these combined with a festive, vibrant and fun atmosphere promise to make Sancho Pistola's a staple in the Fishtown community nightlife scene.
If you like loud, Sancho's is the place for you and your crowd. Grab a bite to eat, sample a brew or a cocktail or two, listen to some music and enjoy the festive atmosphere. More a bar than a restaurant, Sancho's offers up its food along with the promise of a great evening of musical entertainment and raucous enjoyment.
