Rex has a bit of a southern twang in appearance, with a wrap-around bar in the back, completed by a large TV screen with non-stop classics in black and white. Brunch at REX starts at 11am. They had plenty of creative drink specials, and a great GF brunch menu. I had a hard time deciding between the Huevos Rancheros and the Shrimp and Grits. I went with the Shrimp and Grits and was very happy I did! The Shrimp and Grits came with Fried Egg, Roasted Tomatoes, Crispy Pork Belly and Blackened Shrimp. It was ridiculously good; every bite a little taste of heaven:)
If you have to eat gluten free, and you're anywhere Philadelphia, go to REX 1516 - trust me, you'll be glad you did.
