You can’t deny that Bobby Flay is the man. He’s a great chef, iron chef, griller and he knows how to throw it down! And I don’t know about you, but he seems like he’d be a pretty cool guy to hang out with.
Bobby has several high end restaurants but he also has Bobby’s Burger Palace, aka heaven or BBP. And, you guessed it, Jay and I ventured out to the Philadelphia location in this below freezing weather to check it out.
The feel of the restaurant is very relaxed. You walk in, get in line, check out the menu ( or if you’re like me you check it out online contemplate for a week), place your order where you pay and get a number. Then, you sit down with your number visible and wait!
The menu includes creative burger choices and you also have the option of getting a veggie burger, turkey burger, or chicken. Sides include fresh cut french fries, sweet potato fries and onion rings. You could also get a salad or grilled cheese but that would kind of defeat the purpose. And as far as drinks go, you can get spiked milkshakes, beer, wine, margaritas and fountain soda.
After we placed our order and paid we patiently waited.
In case you were wondering about the cost, it wasn’t bad at all!
Can’t beat going out to dinner in the city for under $30.
The seating is pretty unique. There was one long table where we sat and you sit on swivel chairs. It was interesting because people would just come and sit next to you. There was also smaller tables and a bar style seating area.
I had a glass of vino.
Jay had a beer.
There was an array of different sauces that you could try with your meal.
I had the Philly burger which included either provolone or cheese whiz (I got American instead) fried onions and hot peppers.
Oh and how could I forget to mention this?!
You can “crunchify” any sandwich, which means add chips to it. I had to.
Jay had a chicken sandwich with American cheese, bacon and he also crunchified his sandwich.
We also had some fresh cut fries that was served with a zesty dipping sauce.
So what can y about BBP? Amazing. A very great concept with solid good food. My sandwich was juicy, cheesy and flavorful. I don’t eat burgers that often but when I do, it better be good. And this burger exceeded my expectations. I recommend checking this place out at one of their 5 locations if you get the chance!
Now I just wonder if Bobby would be up for a BBP throwdown…
