    Old City gem.

    Cool atmosphere (love the church pew booths), tasty food, at a fair price. Service was very attentive. An Old City gem!

    National Mechanic is a National Treasure

    As we walked around Olde City looking for a place to eat, we came upon National Mechanics. The building which looked very appropriately "olde" invited us in. Once inside we read the daily special board and we decided that this would either be great or it would be awful. But what's life without a little adventure, right? Well, this one was a winner. We ordered beer, from the server suggestions and it was terrific. And then we went with the fish tacos. Absolutely delicious. Perfectly prepared and served with a choice of tomatillo sauce and a salsa. Yummy. I still think about it and if I get back to Philly again, I'm heading straight for National Mechanics.

    The full experience!

    To me, there is nothing better; great food, great drink, awesome service. A place where even the stranger feels at home.

    None better!

    Ever since National Mechanics opened it has become a favorite dinner/drink stop for both myself and my husband as well as a large group of friends. Its a great placed to kick back relax and not feel out of place in todays semi uptight bar scene. The food is perfect and the service is always with a smile and as speedy as can be. The prices are another clencher. Two dollar tap and 5 dollar burger happy hour specials. The decor is both interesting and inviting. compared to some of the previous establishments in this building this is far and beyond a step up for the old Mechanics National Bank. Two Thumbs up, WAY up... if I had a third, it would be up there too!!

    Welcome addition to the neighborhood

    This place is a welcome change to Old City. Great food and drinks at a reasonable price without the pretension of the neighborhood. We stopped in when Second Street got to be too much. It's in a landmark building, once the legendary Revival, you can't miss it. The decor inside is awesome, the booths are pews and lighting is amazing. We started with mint juleps, which I hadn't had in a million years, perfect on a warm day. I had the Frito Taco Extravaganza and a great burger, my girlfriend had the veggie burger, which she is still talking about. The staff was attentive and friendly, I'll definitely go back. Music was pretty good too, I heard the Minutemen and Wu Tang when we were there, definitely not your typical scene. Some of the hipster crowd, but what do you expect, it's a cheap not crappy place in Old City?! Plenty of space for a group if you get there early.

    great time

    met a bunch of friends here to try it out, most of us hadn't been in the building for 10 years or so. The place is great. Recommended.
