Since 1979, Ishkabibbles has been slinging cheesesteaks to the hungry masses on Philadelphia’s South Street.

Quick service from the walk-up window is the hallmark of this long-running eatery, largely considered the innovator of the chicken cheesesteak. Wash down your meal with a signature “Gremlin,” Ishkabibbles signature beverage made with half grape and half lemonade.

Looking for a seated experience? Check out Iskabibbles II near 5th and South Streets, just a few blocks from the original location.
