That gastropub in Reading Terminal. No more taking my meal over to the beer garden to wash down with a cold one for that place? Ugh.
Morning Glory breakfast
This 2nd wave of transplant brats who moved in after the 1st wave apparently made Center City and surrounds white enough
The most overrated thing is Philadelphia is the Robert Indiana LOVE sculpture. There are like 30 of them all over the world, including other big cities like NYC, Montreal, and Hong Kong. The one in JFK Plaza is not the original, that's in Indianapolis. The fact that it's been adopted as some symbol of the city is frankly embarrassing.
Food wise, La Colombe for sure. Nice business, mediocre coffee. Oh yeah Pub & Kitchen sucks too.
For me, it's the reading terminal market.
LaColombe is just horrible.
"Best of Philly"
If I had to add something to this....most overrated thing:
Chickie and Pete's Crabfries. Of course I hope I don't get in trouble for not adding the circled "c" next to it for copyright infringement.
Its Old Bay, melted american cheese and cheap frozen fries for f**ks sake!! Stop getting in mile long lines at Citizens Bank Park for it.
That said...I'll disagree with cheesesteak...only because outside of Philly, you'd be amazed how no one can seem to get it right.

I think a lot of people ITT don't understand what the term overrated means when they say the gallery.
I'm not certain that you can say, as a blanket statement, that cheesesteaks are overrated and I'm surprised no one has mentioned Pat's and Geno's by name yet.
the sports complex?
the venues themselves are cool, but the locale is the pits... a vast sea of parking lots, it's kinda bleak.
