2021: Philadelphia Voted P’unk Burger Best Burger!
1823 E Passyunk Ave
(856) 644-4626 – punkburgerphiladelphia.com
South Philly’s P’unk Burger went through the pandemic as one of this city’s only restaurants to maintain its own delivery service. They kept up the already-high quality of its beloved neighborhood menu (the signature P’unk Burger is still its very best with bacon and gouda) as well as offering meat from humanely-raised, grass-fed cows — all antibiotic, pesticide and hormone-free. Heck, even their sodas are fair trade. That’s as decent as it is delicious. The commitment to using only organic or natural products as a gluten-free restaurant is another way P’unk Burger differentiates itself in the burger marketplace.
