SquareBurger is one
of those places with a lot of potential. They do
some things well, most of the time. Other things,
not so much.
I've had one great
cheeseburger and one mediocre one. The patties are
a quarter pound and nicely thick. They seem to be
grilled medium to medium well no matter what is
requested, but stay juicy. Toppings include
ketchup, onions, mustard and relish. One time the burger
was perfect - another time it was sloppily garnished and
a third of it was over salted.
The hot dogs are
kosher, all beef, good sized. They come
ungarnished so don't look like much but good flavor,
snap and juice. There is also a Philadelphia Hot
Dog, wrapped in Kosher salami and topped sort of like a
The fries are
frozen and a disappointment.
The shake on the
right is made with half and half and has a package worth
of TastyKake Butterscotch Krimpit blended in. Good
flavor, though the the crumbled up Krimpit coming
through the straw was disconcerting. They also do
other shakes without bakery products.
SquareBurger will improve with age. Philadelphia
needs a great hamburger stand. In fact
Philadelphia needs a bunch of great hamburger stands.
