So you guys know about the McRib, right? It’s some kind of mutant, boneless pork sandwich that McDonald’s releases on the world every now and then. People go nuts over it for a lot of reasons, but one of the big ones is that its not available all the time. It’s a limited release, and that makes the McRib special.
Shake Shack has been doing something similar for the past few months–putting their Shackmeister Burger (the first major, burger-based addition to their menu since 2012) onto menus in select locations, then pulling it off again, offering it as a special, then making it go away. But starting on January 1 of 2015, the Shackmeister (pictured above) is going to become a permanent addition to the menu of Shacks nationwide.
But there’s something special just for Philly, too.

It’s available now but only for a limited time.

Obviously when it comes to burgers, a veggie burger is a veggie burger, and it’ll never be quite as good as the real thing.
But our friends over at Be Well Philly are taking a poll: Where’s the best veggie burger in Philly? So if you’re a vegan or a vegetarian, or not and just happen to know of a superb veggie burger, let Be Well Philly know.
“Muffin but Trouble” – Rex 1516 Collaboration burger with Pumpkin.
A few days ago we gave you the city’s best food, beer and shot combos. And here’s a friendly reminder that some of them are available tonight.
Cedar Point‘s “Drunk and Cheesy,” happening every Tuesday night, features a special grilled cheese, side of fries, beer and shot for $13. Tonight’s Cheesy is something rather intriguing – black pudding and cheddar on sourdough, with a Sly Fox stout and shot of Jameson. It sounds a little weird, but is a grilled cheese and booze deal nonetheless.
Here’s what Rex 1516 is serving tonight »
