View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Philadelphians have been lining up at this North Philly corner shrimp spot ever since it opened in 1966. The “Colonel of Shrimp” serves every batch just one way: fried in a batter that’s perfectly seasoned with a hint of sweetness. Getting your hands on a dozen of these golden crispy shrimp fresh out of the fryer will leave you feeling more triumphant than finding an open parking spot on your first whip around Broad and Wyoming.
