Best Cheers-Style Bar in Ardmore 2015: At McCloskey’s, the bartender banter is sharp, the service is quick, and the vibe is far from pretentious. After more than 75 years, the place continues to exude charm. Visit on a Thursday night, and catch your favorite pepper-haired regular belting out Hank Williams Jr. Maybe you’ll see us there, too.

Best Cheesesteak 2013: This quintessential Irish tavern has been a Main Line mainstay for more than 75 years. But it wasn't until the past few that they decided to fine-tune the menu. And their cheesesteak - thinly sliced sirloin smothered in American cheese and layered on a long roll - is a leading Philly contender (bold statement, we know).

2009: Kick it old-school with a long roll, Provolone and house-made gravy. Or take it gourmet, served on a panini with a generous handful of spring mix and a pleasantly bracing swoosh of Craisin horseradish. For dinner, this monster comes with a side of fries - so if you're planning on going to McCloskey's at night, you might want to skip lunch.
