Whiskey Village in Center City is one of the dozens of places in Philadelphia to order a tasty burger.

Philadelphia, with its multitude of casual, neighborhood bars and pubs, is a place with lots of burgers, writes Jason Sheehan and Maddy Sweitzer-Lamme for Philadelphia Magazine.

Among the spots you must try first include Rex at the Royal, which puts pimento cheese on their burger to give it a little heat; Huda, with its house-made milk bun; and Spot Gourmet Burgers, which has expanded from its humble beginnings as a food cart to a brick-and-mortar.

Johnny Brenda’s in Fishtown is another good option for a delicious burger.

In East Passyunk, there’s Royal Tavern, with its legendary burger topped with smoked gouda, chili mayo, caramelized onions, a pickled long hot and bacon.

Center City has numerous options, from Village Whiskey to Darling Jack’s Tavern,, Dandelion, Good Dog Bar, and Butcher Bar, among others.

At Southwark in Queen Village, there’s the popular burger topped with salty Birchrun Hills blue cheese, bacon, charred onions, and aioli. In Society Hill, there’s Hawthorne’s, with its classic burger stacked with smash patties, sharp cheddar, and smoky remoulade on a brioche roll. 

Ummi Dee’s Burger Bistro in North Philadelphia is known for having a burger for everyone, including a bacon turkey burger, a salmon burger, and a fried onion-topped brunch burger with bacon and cheese.
