Chef Big Rube's Kitchen
Philadelphia's beloved fashion mogul, caterer, and chef Reuben Harley delivers big, bold flavors with his new ghost kitchen concept. For when the munchies hit, Chef Big Rube's Kitchen is here to save the day with a plethora of classic and creative takes on fried chicken, burgers, cheesesteaks, and more.

Savory or sweet fillings enrobed in buttery dough and baked or fried, empanadas may just be the best munchie snack of all time. Empanada Alley's recent addition to the ghost kitchen scene in Philadelphia fills a gap in Cuban offerings. There are not many in Philadelphia. Menu Highlight: The 'Pork del Campo' empanada (pulled pork, roasted poblano, charred tomatoes, and West Indian cilantro) or the "Dulce" Sweet Guava Empanada (guava paste, Philadelphia cream cheese). Location: Order via the website or takeout or delivery.
Some studies have claimed that cheese is as addictive as drugs. While marijuana's legality continues to grow to garner widespread support nationwide, we're happy that cheese is already perfectly legal in all 50 states. Menu Highlight: The 'Better with Bacon' melt (applewood smoked bacon, tomato, buttered brioche bun, and American cheese) and the 'Tator Tot Nachos.' Location: Order through UberEats, Postmates, Doordash, Caviar, and Grubhub.
