It’s National Soup Month and the polar vortex is coming, just in time to chill down the end of January.

But never fear! Here are just a few of the many wonderful Delco restaurants that offer delicious, warm, and comforting homemade soups for you to pick up and warm up at home, plus you’ll be supporting your community restaurants.

Jack’s Taverna recent recipient of the Barstool Fund—is a great place for food, fun, atmosphere, and of course, great food. Their soups are so great that one time a customer even bought a round of soup for the bar, just so he could share with the room how great Jack’s soups are!

They offer daily soups: a soup of the day, like their Stuffed Peppers Soup, and a daily seafood soup, like a Clams Casino version of soup.

Visit the tavern at 18 State Road in Media, or call 610-566-5914.
