|Underdogs is still riding high in Rittenhouse|
What is for sure is that Underdogs is pulling out of its South Philly location. Owner Robert Amar told The Insider that translating the concept - extremely successful in its Rittenhouse location - to the larger spot on Ninth Street just didn’t work out. The new outpost was right next door to Geno’s, which could have meant spillover traffic but probably meant cheesesteak-seekers who didn’t want to switch up to Underdogs franks (a foolish decision, if you ask us). Amar is looking for a new expansion location.
