SPTR Burger

I really like the South Philly Taproom. It's a pretty cool beer drinking bar. I have been hearing and reading rave reviews about their burger these days, so I went to check it out. Although it was technically brunch, I ordered the regular burger because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

I ordered it medium, but it came well, leaving it a big dry. Also their red onions took over the flavor of the burger. However, the bun was really a good burger holder. The secret sauce was too mustardy, which mixed with the onions to really over-power your taste buds. It did have promise, and it scored well on the local burger club meating, but it was a bit lacking for me.

One thing I liked is that they salted the tomatoes on the burger with sea salt. This is an attention to detail that I really do appreciate. The fresh pickled vegetables were good, and it was a pretty good fresh pasta salad as well. But I just wasn't blown away, so the search continues.
