High Society

There’s certainly no shortage of places in Philadelphia to get good food and cocktails. So when Society Hill Society opened in Headhouse Square a few months ago, I knew I’d have to add it to my list. And then all my friends started raving about their burger. “Best burger I ever had!” “Only $8!” “I don’t even like burgers but this was so good!” Once I heard their reviews and saw pictures all over social media of how good it looked, it immediately got bumped to the top. I popped in for brunch on Sunday after checking out the Headhouse Farmers Market, which is where Society Hill Society sources many of its ingredients from. The burger is a no-frills sirloin & brisket blend patty topped with lettuce, onion and tomato on a house-made potato bun. You can also add cheddar cheese for $1, which I did.

The burger looked amazing when it came out. The patty and bun were proportional, although certainly smaller than the monster I got last week. I did however find myself running out of burger the more bites I took, so I tried to pace myself and only had about one bite at the end that was just bun. The house-made bun was nice and soft, and it was nice to see something other then a shiny brioche roll for a change. Since the burger patty was small and thick, it did come out slightly more on the medium-well side, but was very juicy and flavorful. It was also topped with some kind of house-made ketchup that was was ridiculous delicious. Paired with hand-cut potato chips and a pickle, it was the perfect treat for a Sunday afternoon, and definitely worth the expedited trip.

Burger rating: “B+”
