Best burger in the Mt. Airy/Chestnut Hill area?

I know this topic has come up before, but I feel like the burger landscape is always changing and we need to stay on top of the issue. So far the best burger I've found in our area is at Tavern on the Hill in CHill - they make an excellent bar burger, cook it just to order (med-rare for me) and the veg, buns and fries are fresh and tasty. I'm curious about the burgers at Cisco's (not in our neighborhood but close enough) in Flourtown but I can never get myself to order anything other than the cheesesteak so I haven't gotten to try it. When I first moved to the neighborhood I used to go to McMenamin's for burgers but I've had to give up on them after a succession of sorry, dry, overcooked, underseasoned messes.

What are people's favorites?

  1. I think you'll have more like on the Pennsylvania board, but... I am from that area and live in NJ now so I saw your post. My favorite for burgers and cheeseteaks especially is Fatty's on Willow Grove Avenue. They changed their fries, which used to be awesome waffle fries, but everything else is still really good.
