Server advised me to use the BPP app and I got the App and signed up . I got back in line and ordered only to find out that the Apps servers are down and I couldn't use my $40 credit.

The burgers my group had were outstanding, along with the onion rings and fries. I also strongly recommend the milk shakes and lemonade. The food was relatively expensive. I expected this from a celebrity chef restaurant in a big city. These are by no means fast food burgers nor are they fast food prices. The service was great, the food... More

We have always made it a point to eat at least one lunch at Bobby's Burger Palace near the University of Pennsylvania. Each time we have gone we have tried a different burger and with three of us doing that we were able to go through the entire menu within the first three visits. Regardless of the burger type selected,... More

My granddaughter's favorite place. Love the topless burgers (no bun on a bed of greens). A delicious burger and tasty sweet potato fries. Lots of variety & choice.

I had the burger with blue cheese and my husband had the Phillyburger - both were excellent! The onion rings were very tasty but the fries are just average. I would go back for sure!!

Best turkey burger I've ever had - moist and flavorful! A bit pricey, though. The fries were perfectly cooked! Enjoyed a delicious shake as well. Not busy when I was there so the wait and service were good.

The burgers are nice and big and done to order any way you like them! They taste great and come in a number of combinations. You can substitute chicken or ground turkey for beef. The shakes and malts are great too. You place your order and it's brought to your table. The decor is like something out of the Jetsons.... More

Stopped in here for lunch during the week. My burger was very good and reasonably priced. What really sold me though was the staff. They were really nice and had personality. They also checked on me to see if I needed anything else. I will gladly recommend this place

Burgers here are top notch but pricey. Fries are good not great most of the time. Occasionally you might get the bottom of the basket and they are over cooked. Service can be hit or miss, and often the wait is longer than what would be expected based on the crowd. The Philly burger is tremendous - provolone cheese and... More
