What could be more American than a martini bar that cooks international food without international flair? I'll tell you what, a light fixture shaped like a giant olive on a toothpick. What's more American than gaudy plastic light fixtures? Huge, heart-stopping burgers. What's more American than that? The Continental.

The Continental is a martini bar and upscale diner with an eclectic, international menu. Compared to the...

Editor's Note: This article refers to an establishment that, sadly, has closed. It's sad because it was an awesome burger. RIP.

After the heartbreak that was Le Bec-Fin, I was wary of Adsum and it's chef, Georges Perrier protégé Matt Levin. I was betrayed, I was hurt, and I was scared. I didn't know if I was ready to love again....

I don't watch reality TV. I also don't watch the opposite of reality TV (Fantasy TV? Theoretical TV? Unreal TV?). I don't have a Facebook page or a Twitter account, I don't actually know what Lady Gaga is and I'm very confused when people say that John Locke is a smoke monster. For the past few years I've been on something of a self-imposed media exile, which aside from missing out on the...

Do not go to Village Whiskey on a Saturday. It's already hard enough for me to get a table.

Village Whiskey Happy Hour Menu

Using his incomparable intellect, Iron Man Garces has invented new hours during which to be happy. "It's 5 O'clock Somewhere..." addresses my only complaint with Village...

Stephen Starr's cutely named burger shack in Franklin Square park was a cause for celebration in the burger eating world when it was unveiled in 2009. The simple brick building has a few grills where patrons can find the fare you'd expect in a park that also has a carousel and miniature golf (burgers, fries, hot dogs, milkshakes). And though there are reports that those running SquareBurger...

Monk's Cafe is the new drive-thru diner in Center City. (Edit: As of Labor Day the restaurant is back open, so that joke is now old, but shut up. It was relevant when we went a few weeks back. Shut up, I hate you, you're not my real dad.)

Going to Monk's Cafe is a religious experience: you're surrounded by beers beyond your understanding, and the...

FACT: Much like the later years of World War II, when the Americans were busy trying to make an atomic bomb fearful that the Germans might be trying to do the same, during the Revolutionary War the British were trying to make the perfect meal in hopes that they would find the solution before the Americans. Little did they know that Benjamin Franklin had found the recipe long before the war and had committed it to a secret location within the city of Philadelphia. Franklin's knowledge, and the founding of the country as we know it, was laid out in the...

The last time I ate at London Grill, I threw up.

Two years ago, in the middle of brunch, I rushed to the bathroom to throw up. Suddenly realizing I was done eating, I walked home, stopping to throw up along the way. Once I made it back safe, I decided to have a nice vomit, followed by a nap, which was interrupted when I had to blow chunks. (This expulsion was itself interrupted by a separate spate of vomiting, a regurgitorial aside if you will.) After some nice puking, I decided the best...

Editor's note:
This review refers to a burger that no longer exists and has been replaced with a new review: Pub and Kitchen 2: Electric Boogaloo.

There aren't many places is Philadelphia to get good food late at night. Around 11 the city starts to look barren from a culinary point of view. In this landscape, a restaurant like Pub and Kitchen stands out. Pub and Kitchen has a very old...

One of my biggest complaints about our work here at Burgerdelphia is that we haven't made enough fun of hipsters. People (probably dirty hipsters) have complained that I can't even explain what a hipster is, but this misses the point. Hipsterity, like quality, cannot be defined: you just know it when you see it. Which makes perfect sense, since hipsters are usually identified as having no good qualities. And stupid hair. With that in mind, we decided to delve into their labyrinthine central...
