3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Really I'd give this 3.5 stars because it is a little better than average. I went for lunch during the work day and it was not crowded at all which is nice because it is tiny inside. My burger was good. I wouldn't rave about it. The fries were good too (garlic parmesan). I know I'm using the word good... More

It has a lot of hype and a lot of choices. I didn't really like the $12 burger choices but it was good. I wouldn't stop out of my way here again. Their fries didn't taste like much and seating is limited. The staff really wasn't too friendly when we asked questions. They have a large selection so there are... More

Nice choices here for burgers and topping alike. Burgers were great as were the regular and sweet potato fries. It is small and you are likely to share a table but yum yum!

Wish they still had the 3 Little Pigs special which was so good but the regular bacon, egg, and cheese burger on a brioche bun is solid. Fries are very good too and you can make your own cherry coke. Worth the $ in my opinion. Service is hit or miss though.

The place leaves a bit to be desired but it's a pretty tasty burger. Definitely beats Shake Shack in my opinion. Truffle fries are awesome also.

I was really excited to give this place a shot but the service was very slow, the burger was salty, and I think that the food was unexceptional.

After jazz and before bed a 500 degree burger hits the spot. They have a very nice selection of different burgers and their fries were great, as well.

Arrived about 45 minutes prior to closing on a mid-week evening. Was told that there were "no more shakes" - translation "we don't want to make any more and clean up the mess". This is like when a bartender tell you the blender is broken when they don't want to make frozen drinks. Moving on: we order and out of... More

We ate here yesterday after walking through Philadelphia and enjoying an amazing May day. We all had classic burgers with a variety of add on toppings. Everyone in our party was thrilled with their dinner. This is a casual dining spot with a few interior tables and a few more outside. The menu is burgers, shakes and fries. The shakes... More

I was looking for a good lunchtime burger with my 9 year old son. We went back and forth between shake shack and here. I have heard mixed reviews about this place but I thought the burger was really good! My son got the standard cheeseburger and I got mine with arugula and mushrooms.. Yumm! The burgers are much bigger... More
