Phil's is a genuine throwback, a '50s soda shop. The weathered crown above the entrance and the red-and-white checkerboard floor give no sign that these are the '90s. Phil's is also more like the '50s than the '90s in its pricing, with whole meals available for less than $4. Breakfast is served all day; there are also burgers, pizza puffs, gyros, fries and soup. All dinners come with potatoes or rice, vegetables, bread and soup. Choose from meatloaf, liver and onions, ribeye and pepper steak or London broil for a mere $4.29. Beat that! The dining room is separated from a carry-out counter by a door, but once in the dining area you'll be treated to a TV and retro '50s (radio) music all at once.
