Top notch burger and fries

We tried 4 different buffed and settled on the 500 degree burger as the best. Truffle flavored fries are excellent. The owner was there and provided superb service on a Saturday afternoon

Despite closed down streets and a long day for this owner and his restaurant during the Popes visit-They welcomed us and served us at a late hour. Burgers were great as were the fries. We appreciated the hospitality.

Good for lunch, excellent for late night. kobe burger with wild boar bacon is always my go to, skip the ketchup and mayo and opt for a runny fried egg instead

This is one of my faves in Philly for years. Lived in Philly when the place first opened, brought a ton of people to them. Returned for business last week, had to see if it was still awesome. Happy to report with a resounding YES. Not sure there's a better burger under $10 in the city, and a bunch of... More

I am not a fan of red meat but really, really like the burgers at 500 Degrees. Service could improve a little (they never seem to have enough help) but if you're in the mood for a really good burger then you should definitely give it a try (it's better than most of the better burger joints in the area).

One daughter had a burger with bacon that she enjoyed. I tasted the other daughter's portabella "burger," which was amazing - the best I'd ever had. Also loved that this hole in the wall was clean.

Very friendly staff and the most delicious, mouth-watering combination of ingredients between two pieces of a bun ever! Me and a friend were just walking down the street when we stumbled upon 500 degrees and since we were craving burgers decided to try it out. Best decision of a our few days in Philly! The meat was perfectly done (medium... More

I walked into 500 Degrees at 10:30pm on a Thursday night. The sign on the door clearly stated it was open until 11:00pm. (So does the hours posted on Tripadvisor) The young kid at the register was busy chatting with a group of his friends who were talking about where to go drinking. He looked at me with as much...

It used to be my preferred burger place in town but after last visit it appears that the quality is dropping a bit - the idea is still great, with possibility to make its own burger from scratch, with tens of ingredients to choose from. But while previously it was perfectly prepared and served, most recent experience was rather the... More
