A drop in quality

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... read 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...

During my visit to philly, someone advised me to try it! I took the classic 500 degrees' burger. It was a fair burger not as I was expected... The fries were not crispy...I didn't like! It wasn't a great experience unfortunately...

This place quite possibly made the best burger I've had in Philadelphia. I love the build your own burger options. Mine goes something like this: Two burger patties American cheese Bacon Fried Egg Raw onion Jalapenos Arugula (optional) Mayo Not your style? Weren't you paying attention? I said it's build your own! Make your own damn burger, but don't expect... More

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.
