Center City//Merion

On a Sunday, where can I take a 15 year old grandson who is a hearty eater for lunch, not dinner, mid afternoon, in the Philadelphia area?
Not fancy, but good. Ie, Citron and Rose not in the price range for casual

    Mama's Vegetarian in Center City has really good falafel and is very casual. There are also several Burgers.org branches around there that would fit the bill.

      Ditto. We were in Philly a couple of weeks ago and went to both Mama's and burgers.org in Center City. The falafel at Mama's is outstanding. We went on a weekday during lunch and there was a line out the door. I'll bet it's less crowded on a Sunday.

        Burgers.org and Mama's were the two places I did know about. Can you give me locations on Burger.org? Lines out the door; yes, I've seen them at Mamas! Delish tho.

        No place in Merion area, which would present less of a parking problem? Must be strictly Kosher though.

          there is a burgers.org in Merion, or maybe it is
          Narberth, on Montgomery Avenue. It has a small parking lot behind it, but still hard to park.
