Now open: Sancho Pistola's in Fishtown

The crew from the Center City Mexican bar gem Jose Pistola's has headed to the edge of Fishtown for its second location, dubbed Sancho Pistola's. It's at 19 W. Girard Ave., next to the M Room and around the corner from Frankford Hall and Fette Sau, in a corner spot that housed the short-lived Bubba's BBQ.

The crew from the Center City Mexican bar gem Jose Pistola's has headed to the edge of Fishtown for its second location, dubbed Sancho Pistola's. It's at 19 W. Girard Ave., next to the M Room and around the corner from Frankford Hall and Fette Sau, in a corner spot that housed the short-lived Bubba's BBQ.

The center bar, ringed by tables, remains, as do the multiple TVs for sports.

Joe Gunn and Casey Parker have brought in their chef, the Puebla-born Adan Trinidad, as a partner in this venture, whose 10 beer taps dispense locals and crafts. There's a solid list of tequilas and mescals.

Trinidad's menu includes favorites from 15th Street - the spicy tuna guac is a must - plus larger plates, a raw bar, and new tacos. The mole is made by Trinidad's mother.

Today's grand opening starts at 7 p.m. But regular hours are 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. weekdays, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. on weekends. The weekend brunch will start Feb. 8.
