I'm going to make my first trip to Philly and one of the many things that I'm on the lookout whenever going to a new city is burgers. I often consult an old list that was on GQ magazine "The 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die" by Alan Richman. I've had some great successes in some cities (NY and Seattle) and not so much in others (LA). Philly has two on this list the Kobe Sliders from Barclay Prime and the Rouge Burger from Rouge.
I normally scoff at kobe burgers, because kobe (or wagu) is raised to be tender, fatty cuts of meat - much of this effort is wasted when ground up and cooked and most of the fat dripping out.
So that leaves Rouge. I realize that it costs about $16. How is it? How does it compare with other local places?
