Now Open: Ishkabibble’s Second LocationBy Danya Henninger
January 24, 2014
As of today, there are now two places on South Street to find Ishkabibble’s famous cheese fries and chicken cheesesteaks. The second location of the late-night favorite has just soft opened at 517 South Street, the former home of Joey’s Pizza.
Like the original two blocks away, the new outpost will serve cheesesteaks, burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs and fries - in fact, the menu at the two joints will be exactly the same. (The new location doesn’t currently have supplies for hoagies, but will soon.)
What is not the same is the seating arrangement. While the Third Street shop hardly has room for more than three people to stand, the new space has tables that can accommodate up to 50. Customers will order at the counter, take a seat and wait for their number to be called to go pick up their food.
Once everything is fully operational, the new spot will have the same hours as the first Ishkabibble’s: 8 AM-11 PM, Sunday-Thursday and 8 AM-3 AM, Friday-Saturday. For now, it’s a good bet the doors will be open through at least 11 PM, but you can call beforehand to make sure.
