Looking for some good burgers in philly?
Burger.org is a Glatt Kosher restaurant located on South Street in Philadelphia. The setup you would expect at a burger joint is immediately apparent upon entering the restaurant. There are multiple tables with bar stools and some with chairs. There are also chairs at counter in the center of the store where you can order food and watch TV while eating. You can tell that this is an authentically kosher restaurant as there are many pictures and relics reminiscent of the Jewish religion and culture, as well as the cook in his traditional garments. I also saw that one of the workers was praying on the side, making this a prayer friendly place although I did not ask to pray myself.
The menu is full of a variety of free range/grass fed organic meat (chicken, turkey, lamb, beef) for sandwiches and burgers as well as wild catch Fish dishes. They also have a variety of vegetarian dishes ranging from Hummus to Salads and even veggie burgers. Service is quick and the workers are very nice and friendly.
I had the chance to experience their popular El Mariachi Burger and Fried Chicken Sandwich. The El Mariachi was delicious and included pico de gallo, guacamole, raw onion, tomato, lettuce, and chipotle sauce on a medium cooked patty. The Fried Chicken sandwich consisted of a chicken cutlet and tasted fresh and was equally delicious. The meat quality is good and you can tell that its organic as advertised. I think the taste is great but it is not as good as Burger 7 located in Virgina. Their sweet potato fries, however, were not good and may have been better if they were crispy. I did not have a chance to try their regular fries. I will visit again and try their other items, and will update this post accordingly.
I recommend coming here if you are in the mood for some good burgers and cannot find anything Halal in the area. Glatt kosher implies a stricter standard of cutting kosher meat as per about.com: it must come from a kosher animal and be slaughtered in a kosher way. For meat to be glatt kosher, in addition to the two above conditions, the meat must also come from an animal with adhesion-free or smooth lungs. Overall I think this is a great place to go if you’re craving burgers and want to try something new.
