If it’s a burger you’re hankering for, we’ve got you covered. Thin patties, juicy monsters, simple classics, extravagantly-topped creations—there’s something for everyone on our list. From neighborhood bars to fancy steakhouses, here are the best burgers in Philly.
The Burger: The Pork Roll Burger is worth a trip to Northeast Philly. A patty made from ground beef and pork roll topped with American cheese, sunny-side up egg, and Sriracha mayo is all stuffed between a classic Martin’s potato roll.
The Price: $11
Somethin’ Extra: Cheese curds with a chipotle aioli
2859 Holme Avenue
The Burger: For true decadence, this Garces spot has the perfect burger bucket list item: the extravagant Whiskey King, an 8 oz. patty with sweet cipollini onions, gooey, melted blue cheese, applewood bacon, and a slice of seared foie gras on a sesame bun. Now that’s something you won’t find everywhere.
The Price: $26
Somethin’ Extra: Duck fat french fries and seasonal pickles
118 S. 20th Street
The Burger: Go with the namesake Spot burger. It’s got all the classic flavors to go with the fresh ground patty, like cheddar, bacon, pickles, slaw, and the secret Spot sauce. It’s also available as a veggie burger.
The Price: $8
Somethin’ Extra: Root beer float and cheesesteak fries
2821 W. Girard Avenue
The Burger: The Butcher Burger is a lunchtime only item, so head there in the afternoon. The well-charred, dry-aged beef lends a proper steakhouse taste, and the sharp English cheddar and sweet caramelized onions complement full-flavored meat. A house-baked brioche bun holds it all together.
The Price: $14
Somethin’ Extra: Haricots Verts Amandine
1500 Walnut Street
The Burger: This funky Fishtown destination is build-your-own, but we recommend the Smash Onion Burger. Griddled onions are mashed right into the patty, creating an aromatic beef. Top is with some horseradish cheddar for a deliciously stinky pungent bite.
The Price: $7.95 base
Somethin’ Extra: Green chile cheese fries
413 E. Girard Avenue
