West Passyunk’s Grubhouse won a Best of Philly award for best hangover cure. But the South Philly luncheonette isn’t just about curing your headache with bacon pancakes. They also offer several deals that can heal your ailing wallet.
Back in the day Conshohocken’s Blackfish offered lunch with a much-praised burger. Beginning tomorrow lunch returns to Chip Roman’s BYOB. And yes, there’s a burger on the menu. In fact there are two of them. Other highlights include French onion soup, chicken pot pie, roasted skate and four salads.
Lunch is offered Tuesday through Friday.
Sassafras in Old City is now offering lunch. The menu feature sirloin, ostrich and bison burgers as well as a grilled cheese with apricot jam (pictured), traditional fish and chips and more.
If it’s a drinking lunch, check out the single malt scotches or ask about the “secret” handcrafted cocktails, only available during lunch.
Lunch is served Monday through Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Menu offerings average $7.95 to $9.95.
The brand spankin’ new Shake Shack at 32nd and Chestnut is getting ready to throw wide the doors tomorrow at 11am. But today, they were putting the still-mostly-virginal crew through their paces by doing two rounds of friends-and-family service. And, of course, we were there to take pictures (and sponge up free burgers).
New to the menu this time around? A couple of new local concretes (the Declaration of Donuts with vanilla custard, FedNuts french toast fancy donut chunks and a banana, and the Study Buddy with chocolate custard, chocolate toffee, caramel sauce and coffee beans from Joe Coffee right next door). There are also hand-cut fries on the menu now–served either plain or gunked up with cheese sauce–and I am very much looking forward to eating these with my fingers after a night spent drinking with college kids.
So between this location opening tomorrow, the new King of Prussia outpost going live on Monday, October 21 and plans for two new Brooklyn locations (one in DUMBO, the other across from the Barclay’s Center) and a third in Paramus all upcoming, the Shake Shack team has their hands full. The odds of us being able to announce yet another Philly location any time soon? Not good, according to everyone we talked to. But that’s cool. We’ll take the three we’ve got and be happy with them. For now.
I know, I know… You’re really just here for the burger porn. So without further ado, here it is: Shake Shack University City, in pictures.
The former Green Wasabi at 703 Chestnut Street has a new tenant. It appears that Prime Burger Co., will be opening shortly and if you trust awnings, the restaurant will be serving burgers, shakes, sandwiches, salads and soups.
As if news of getting a Federal Donuts was enough for one day. Now University City finds out that its Shake Shack will open on Friday, October 11th at 11 a.m. The Chestnut Square location (3200 Chestnut Street) is the second location in the area for Danny Meyer’s burger chain. A third location will open later this month in King of Prussia. but an exact date has not been determined.
Foursquare has released a list of the ten most popular burger joints in the United States by Foursquare check-ins. Coming in at number ten is P.Y.T. in Northern Liberties. We’re sure the free Yuengling offer with food purchase offer on Foursquare doesn’t hurt, but still, it is an impressive feat.
Spencer ETA Burger has reopened for the Drexel school year and is offering free milkshakes with the purchase of every Special Burger from now through September 30th.
