Philly has been absolutely overrun with top-of-the-line burgers over the past couple years, so it's tough to pick and choose which ones are well worth your hard-earned money.

The Industry Bar

Copy Link
Pat Szoke's Industry Burger is new on the scene, and one you shouldn't miss. It's a ground brisket burger with lettuce, tomato, red onion and pickle mayo.

Spot Burger

Copy Link
While the menu at Spot Burger is full of great bites, the Umami Burger is a must-try. It's made up of beef, lettuce, grilled onions, daikon, gochujang, teriyaki, and mushrooms.

Sketch Burger

Copy Link
The menu is packed with winners, but the pilgrimage to Sketch should always end with a Smashed Onion burger. The beef patty is topped with a tasty mound of carmelized onions, pepper jack cheese, and a garlic aioli.

JG Domestic

Copy Link
The newest addition to the burger scene is the JG Domestic Burger. It's a custom-ground Wolfe’s Neck sirloin patty served with a slice of Jersey tomato, Bibb lettuce and thousand island dressing.

The Dandelion

Copy Link
The burger at Stephen Starr's Dandelion hasn't gotten a lot of attention, but it should. The custom meat blend includes some New York strip, as well as short rib, chuck and hanger steak. Topped with applewood-smoked bacon, Vermont cheddar, and Chef Aikens' secret Churchill sauce.

Vintage Wine Bar

Copy Link
Don't sleep on the Vintage Burger, topped with bacon, Cabot cheddar, cornichon aioli, bibb lettuce, and pickled onion. Wash it all down with some bubbly.
The Bifteki Burger flies under the radar but deserves the spotlight as well. Made from a blend of grass fed beef and stuffed with feta cheese (of course), this delicious burger is topped with tomato, dill, cucumber, and relish.

London Grill

Copy Link
The London Burger is a delicious patty served on an English muffin. Topped with foie gras and a fried egg, the drippings from this rich monster pool in the nooks and crannies.

City Tap House

Copy Link
The Tap Burger is the signature bite here, and worth the trip out West. Made from LaFrieda ground beef and crispy pork belly, topped with Lancaster cheddar, agrodolce onions, beer gastrique, and dijonaise.

Alla Spina

Copy Link
Marc Vetri debuted this double-decker beast called the Burgamo, which is sort of like a Big Mac, which we all know is delicious.

REX 1516

Copy Link
The proprietary blend is made up of brisket, filet tip and deckle, topped with pepperjack cheese, bread-and-butter pickles, beefsteak tomato, red onion, and a Bibb lettuce.

Loco Pez

Copy Link
Sure, they're known for great tacos and Mexican fare, but don't sleep on the terrific burger coming out of the kitchen, and it's only $6.

Field House

Copy Link
The Field House burger also boasts Pat LaFrieda ground beef, topped with three hour onions, and sharp cheddar, all on a brioche bun.
Supper has always had great burgers, and Mitch Prensky's latest is still fantastic. It's a 10 oz. Pat LaFrieda patty topped with country ham, overnight tomato, caramelized onions, cheddar, and house pickles.

Cuba Libre

Copy Link
Flying way under the radar, the Cuba Libre Churrasco Burger never gets any love. Made from hand chopped skirt steak, topped with tomatillo relish, smoked cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato, all on a brioche bun.
