I went to Burgersorg on South Street this past Monday for lunch.It wpuld be really hard to miss this place as it is bright orange and green! I know it sounds rather gaudy but trust me it works really well in this location. It justy gives off the proper Siuth Street vibe and looks like it beloings.
Inside there is more green and orange but again it wirks well. There is a long bar with a pretty granite top where you order and if you wish you can sit on nice, padded stools. Prefer a table? You can sit at a wood table with slightly lower but same styled stools. I need to add thay are quite comfy:)
They had professionally printed on glassy stock menues. They serve burgers (of course) salads fries, sandwhiches, beverages (including organic chpoces and the all important diet Coke!) and smoothies and milkshakes! YES MILKSHAKES!!! (made with parve ice cream)
I had gone with the intensions of having a burger. I really, really wanted a burger. Had wanted on for a few days and was certain I would get one. Well the plans changed when I saw the menue:) They sell STEAK SANDWHICHES!!! I LOVE steaksandwhiches and have been know to eat them elsewhere on South Street ( if you know the street I bet you know where I ate my traif treat up in the second floor:) ) Well sorry famous steak place, I willl nor be back as long as Burger.org is around. :) Seriously I had one of the best steaks and unique I have ever eattn!! the meat was done in such a way thet there were yummy crunchy bits of meat in with the grilled onions (which I added as a free option) Plus the bread (a very important part of a true Philly Steak - bread can make or break a steak sandwhich) was a toasted French Baguette! Oh wow! Who ever thought of that deserves an award! It made the sandwhich so much better than I ever thought it could be!!!
Feeeling glutonous that day, I also had the sweetpotato fries. These were really good too! The fries seemed as if they may have been hand cut and where on the thicker side and short. They were seasoned with cinnimon and were really tastey. I ate them all:) Personally I wpuld have liked them a bit more done and crispy, but that is just how I like my fries.
As I was eatting, another customer saw what I had ordered and changed hos burger order to a steak (btw the best way to "out" yourself as a tourist is to call it a Philly Steak! You have been warned:)
Service was prompt and really nice. After you place your order at the bar you sit down and are served you meal.Several times i was approched to make sure all was well (and it was!0
The clientele is very diverse and reflective of the location. I saw some obviously religious/observent Jews and some who may or may not be Jewsih.Everyone seemed to be enjoying their meal which really is the most thing. i also noticed a brisk take out service which is good. They do offer delvery service too, though i live too far out to have them deliver to me or I may just be eatting a steak right now!
I brought home a menue to shpw my family. Hubby was impresseed and wants to go. The fussy, fussy tean really, really seemed excited about the menue and LOVES the idea of a steak and a milkshake meal! Depending on how things work put this weekend, the plan is to go Sunday where she can get her wish!
No longer does a kosher eating consumer have to sit and sip a coke as their freinds eat this wonderful Philadelphia treat. Just INSIST they join you at Burger.org and everyone will be happy!
