I think we're also getting a Smashburger somewhere in or near Philly. I'm glad to have some of these chains move into the region, given the fairly slim pickings for fast-food style burgers we had until relatively recently. As I mentioned above, I've become a pretty big fan of Freddy's Frozen Custard's double cheeseburger.
Now if we could just get Culver's and Steak 'n Shake. The fries at Freddy's remind me a lot of the fries at Steak 'n Shake.
I've moved to within a 10-minute drive of Charlie's Hamburgers, which is the only burger place in this region and one of only two in Pennsylvania to make the Hamburger America
book. And I love their burgers; but they're SO greasy - maybe the greasiest burgers I've ever had - that I only get them occasionally. Some of these smaller chains are the next best option, as most of the highly regarded burgers in Philly are the large pub-style ones. I prefer a couple thin patties piled on top of each other.
