Like the Liberty Bell, Billy Penn, Independence Hall and the late Frank Rizzo, Ralph's is a Philadelphia institution.  It was born with the century when Italian-born Francesco Dispigno opened his restaurant on Montrose Street and named it for his son.  Fifteen years later, Dispigno moved Ralph's to 760 S. Ninth Street.
Can you imagine a restaurant that is as old as Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother?  Ralph's has been in business for 99 years:  It withstood two world wars, the Great Depression, recessions, the Philadelphia Restaurant Renaissance of the 70's, the restaurant explosion of the 90's-- and is still here and owned by the same family, now for four generations.  From The South Philadelphia Paper
