The original Penn haunt, Smokey Joe's, has been in operation since 1933, and though the location has changed a few times in the last 80 years, “The Pennstitution” is still the same memorable neighborhood spot. President Gerald Ford summed it up best in his 1975 commencement address, “[Penn consists] of 16 institutions of higher learning and personal enlightenment—17 if you include Smokey Joe's.”
Our kitchen features food from Enjay’s, born of a partnership between Smokey Joe’s and the folks at Pitruco Pizza, a Philly-based food truck. We have been dishing out Italian-American-inspired bar food focused on hand-crafted pizzas and sandwiches since 2013. We make many of our ingredients ourselves, and bring the same passion for dough that earned Pitruco a “Best of Philly” nod. Be sure to check our website for hours and daily specials.
