Figuring out where to eat in Philly can be a challenge.
Sure, there’s lots of Philadelphia restaurants but without having an experience there how do you know how good it is. Then, it’s a question of will children be welcome there? Will there be affordable choices that don’t bust your budget? Will there be gluten-free options beyond salad and plain chicken?
Problem solved with P’unk Burger!
Located at 1823 E Passyunk Avenue in Philadelphia, P’unk Burger offers a casual atmosphere for a quick lunch or dinner date with your kids or special someone. With so many flavorful options, a convenient location, and a great setting P’unk Burger is a great stop on your next Philadelphia Day Trip.
When we arrived, I knew instantly this was the place for us to relax after a day of fighting Hydra and Red Skull at the Marvel Experience. We needed to refuel and my kids needed to be able to be kids. P’unk Burger was so easy to get to. It’s minutes from Philadelphia’s sport complexes and parking is easy at any of the street meters. Indoor and outdoor seating is available and they can accommodate larger families.
We sat down and instantly helped ourselves to the complimentary cold water. It was refreshing. As we looked over the menu, I was delighted not just at the unique burger options but also owners, Marlo and Jason’s food philosophy for P’unk Burger.
A neighborhood as authentic as South Philadelphia deserves a burger that’s equally authentic. Nothing artificial. Nothing you can’t pronounce. Our burgers are made from humanely-raised, grass-fed cows that are antibiotic, pesticide, and hormone-free. Our seafood is wild-caught. Our sodas are fair trade. Our ice cream is locally sourced.
It may not be fast. But it is food.
Burger options are available with beef, turkey, veggie, chicken breast, grilled portobello, or Ahi tuna. Gluten-free rolls are available (YES!). There are about 10 specialty burgers to chose from or you can create your own flavorful combination with their sauces and toppings. Gluten-free and vegan sauces are available. Special note: P’unk Burger foods that are labeled GLUTEN-FREE are prepared in a common kitchen with risks of gluten exposure. P’unk Burger does not recommend these items for guests with Celiac Disease. Guests with gluten sensitivities should exercise judgment. This gluten-free option might not work for everyone but I was thrilled it would work for me.
Take a look at P’unk Burger’s menu with burgers, shakes, salads, kids menu, and more.
We started our lunch with shakes. How awesome is this?! P’unk Burger offers shakes with whole milk, soy milk, or almond milk. Again, I love the variety of options. There’s root sodas, floats, and traditional beverages. My boys ordered a vanilla shake, a chocolate shake, and a birch beer shake. All three of my boys loved them. I should add that while my boys thought the cups were small, they were the perfect size to give them just enough yumminess without spoiling their appetites for lunch.
Pictured below was my delicious gluten-free cheeseburger. It’s rare to find a restaurant where I can eat my burger with a bun. A burger isn’t the same without the bun, it always feels like something is missing. Nothing was missing on this one, I truly savored every bite. I will be back for more.
My boys had the two slider beef burger kids meals. From the first bite, my 9 year old kept raving about how awesome they were. He was raving about them so much I had to capture it on an Instagram video. Take a look.
With their hunger and the deliciousness of the food, my boys ate up their lunch in no time. I, on the other hand took my time. The staff was in no rush for us to leave and I was enjoying my lunch. The tabletop video game at the front of P’unk Burger provided my kids with some fun while I finished up my meal. There are a few video game options. Play is 50¢ per player per game, with a portion of proceeds going to a local theatre group that provides Philadelphia schools with theatre programs.
We had a great lunch and with all those burger choices to try and all our day trips to Philly, I know we’ll be back.
