Latest Philly Hot Topics
Who would have thought a tiny two-man food truck would become a contender in this contest? But Spot Burger deserves its cult following. There’s a waitress to take your order, a guy yielding the spatula and a long line of devotees. Think Soup Nazi, except with a cheery demeanor.
Lots of gimmicks here if you’re looking. They’ve got a “TV Dinner” burger made out of Salisbury steak and crammed (along with peas and carrots) between two deep-fried mashed-potato buns. They’ve got a double-cheeseburger burger where the entire bun is made from inter-weaved bacon. Of such are my dreams.
I’m really reluctant to rip a business that’s in my own backyard. But Havertown deserves a better burger than this one. It’s all like the old Woody Allen joke – “Boy the food in this place is really terrible. Yeah, and such small portions.”
We so wanted to like this hipsterish place, with the friendly counter girls and the shtick of putting paper and crayons on the table so that customers will draw pictures they then hang on the walls.
The friendly night manager boasted: “It’s the same burger as Rouge. There you’ll pay $17, here it’s just $11.”
Ahh, this is what the ideal bar burger should taste like. Featured a few years back as the best burger in Pennsylvania, Royal’s Angus burger features bacon, caramelized onions, smoked Gouda and spicy long hot peppers and chile mayo on a seeded brioche bun.
Flay should be embarrassed by “Bobby’s Burger Palace.” Other than a decent – and cheap – beer selection, there’s no reason to spend your money here.
“Hamburgers – the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast” – Jules Winnfield, Pulp Fiction.
Step into Charlie’s and you’re stepping back in time – 1935 to be exact, when Charlie’s opened and probably last decorated. The prices are a throwback as well. It’s tough to spend more than ten bucks here.
I loved this place when I sampled burgers nine years ago, and I still love it today. First off, Standard Tap is perhaps the best venue for local beers, with at least a dozen on tap at all times. Second, it’s a real bar – not a frou-frou trendy place, not a gimmicky themed faux bar.
