Burgers on the Main Line?

pafood Apr 26, 2013 06:15 AM

Any recommendations for great burgers on the Main Line? Curious about the burger at both Georges' and Paramour in Wayne - both sound good, but haven't had the chance to try yet.

    We did enjoy the burger at Georges, a bit pricy, but my understanding is that Georges is closed or closing. The lamb sliders at the White Dog Cafe are/were excellent, also a high end burger choice. I have not had the Turkey or Double Cheddar burger but based on past burger experience there I would expect they are good burgers.

      You might want to wait on a trip to the White Dog, there was a fire in the kitchen yesterday.

        Crazy, one of our visits there was during a kitchen fire which was quickly contained but there was some lingering smoke in the dining rooms.

        I've had the burgers at elevation burger in Wynnewood a couple of times recently and they were quite good.

        but then I had a sketch burger in north philly and that was amazing! It was huge, juicy, meaty ... so good ...

        The atmosphere is a bit lacking (think 1970's luncheonette) but the burger at Our Deli & Meats in Paoli is great. They are also a black angus butcher shop so I think everything is ground fresh.

          oh! thanks. I guess I searched "burger" and "mainline" so didn't see this one.

            I know I've had a burger at Teresa's and know it was good. I just don't remember the experience because I usually order something more interesting when there. But I'd still bet they're worth a try, I mean again, next time I go, if I don't choose something else.

              My favorite burger is at McSheas in Narberth. Simple, but really good. The only thing I get there is burger or corn beef sandwich.

                Find Tango's burgers to be just what l am looking for in a burger. Have it after their great wedge salad.Place is in Bryn Mawr in the old train station.

                  Thanks! I didn't even know that place was there. I will definitely be giving that a try.

                    Just had a burger there on Tuesday - excellent, juicy meat, with a nice char on the outside and a bun that holds together. And you get to watch the trains go by if you're in one of the booths.

                    I tried the burger at Georges' last week. Very nice. Pricey as you might expect. A substantial seeded brioche bun, wagyu beef cooked perfectly to order, cheese and caramelized onions. The fries were good too. I went for lunch and was surprised that the bar area was basically empty.
