“We’re opening an outpost of Buena Onda at the Wells Fargo Center to go along with Garces Eats up on the club level,” said Chef Jose Garces. “Philly is a sports city, and the fans are as passionate about their teams as I am about food. I wanted to do my part to give these fans fresh and delicious options while they cheer (or jeer) at the game. We’re bringing our good vibes to the concourse experience. We can all agree on tacos regardless of what happens on the court or the ice. And Buena Bowls. And Guac.”
