Short Account of Our Long History
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.
Philadelphia landmark is located at 8634 Germantown Avenue in the
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.
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.
