Let me begin by saying WOW! It was my first time there tonight and it totally blew my mind! A friend from work has been telling me about this place for about a week or two now, so I finally gave in to go with him for some drinks after work. We sat at the upstairs bar and had the best bartender you could ever ask for, his name, Casey. He is part owner of the establishment. Let me tell you, this man knows his shit! You want to talk beer, he knows it. Beers paired tremendously with their corresponding glasses, great suggestions, and help with beer that I have never even heard of before. He had the best grasp on beer that I have ever heard. I tried 3 new beers that I have never even had before. Put it this way they had St. Bernardus abt 12 on TAP on Tap, as well as Cantillion Gueuze and Sly fox oatmeal stout. Amazing!! They serve Mexican food to accompany the great beer selection and the food is pretty damn good as well. I just can't get over the tap selection. They are truly on their way to becoming one of the better beer bars in Philadelphia. Hats off to Pistolas. Here is to many more years to come! You can't go wrong with this bar. If you are ever in Philly check it out!

We stopped by here for some beers and late night burritos. We sat at the tables in the back of the first floor. Upstairs on the second floor there was a second bar and a live band playing.
Beer selection was pretty solid, with a diverse selection of American craft beer plus a Belgian or two. Server was friendly and managed to memorize our group's entire order.
Burritos were simply amazing, I had the spicy pork and to date it's the best burrito I've ever had. Definitely will be heading back here.

Nice to see a Mexican restaurant with a solid tap and bottle list. Around 15 taps and lots of nice bottle options including Russian river sours and a 3F option when I went. Menu made note of cantillion options too, but they were out when I was there. Wife and I went on a Saturday night and it was not crowded, so that was a nice plus. Food was very good and the beer options made this visit a nice experience.
