Sto’s Bar just opened recently in Old City and it’s burger has already made Zagat’s “10 Must-Try New Burgers in Philadelphia” list, so I figured I had to go check it out for myself since I’d already sampled some of the other burgers on the list recently. I opted for the Classic Burger: 10oz Angus Beef, served with Lettuce, tomato, onion, special house mayo and cheddar cheese. I wasn’t asked how I wanted my burger cooked, but was pleasantly surprised to find a nice, warm pink center. The bun was soft and not brioche; more bonus points! And even though I didn’t request it, the chef put cheese on my fries and my hangover was quite thankful.
It was definitely a good, solid bar burger. They’ve also got a few other varieties on the menu like the Jersey Burger, topped with Pork Roll naturally. And a burger topped with Kielbasa and served with a side of pierogies instead of fries.
Burger Rating: “B”
