Tap That.

In the far reaches of Kensington lies the Memphis Taproom, a little bar with a big beer personality and an awesome outdoor garden space. Sounds familiar, you say? It should – they are owned by the same awesome crew who own Strangelove’s, Local 44 & Resurrection Ale House. So wherever you happen to find yourself in Philly, you can count on getting great beer and awesome food. Opting for their cheeseburger, the bartender threw me a curveball: “Do you want bacon?” I CAN HAZ BACON? That’s not listed on the menu! But obviously, I went and added some bacon to that jawn along with cheddar cheese.

My burger came out looking amazing. Thick strips of bacon. Lots of gooey cheese. A toasty, soft non-brioche bun. Bibb lettuce. and a thick slice of tomato. What more could a burger-loving gal ask for? The burger was big, thick and juicy – but just a touch over medium into medium well territory. I thought the hand cut fries were great, but the owner (who apparently has a very colorful sense of humor) proclaimed that they tasted “like they were made by a 14 year old” as he sampled some from a regular patron’s plate.

Unfortunately, Memphis Taproom is a little far out of the way for me to make regular trips to enjoy their amazing beer selection, but if you live in the area or they’re having one of their numerous, seasonal beer events, definitely stop in and check their burger out, too!
