Popi’s looks like one of those big event spaces you see on the side of the highway in New Jersey - the ones that people rent out for a retirement party or a tacky prom. But that’s exactly why we like it. It’ has two floors of tables with white tablecloths and carpeting that was installed in the ’80s, and the food is classic, red sauce Italian. It will definitely do the trick after a Sixers game where your only options were cotton candy and microwave pizza.
