If you’re a true Philadelphian, you’ve seen at least an episode or two of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And if Mac, Dee, Dennis, Charlie, and Frank’s antics make you bust out laughing, then you need to drop what you’re doing and head to Mac’s Tavern.
This pub is owned by the show’s stars, Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney, and offers up plenty of game-day grub to satisfy your most hedonistic cravings.
