My brother took me to this place claiming to having fabulous tasting burgers. I ordered a Bacon Burger with EVERYTHING no cheese.....to my surprise, I get a plain burger....YES, bread and patty and NOTHING else. If this was a fabulous tasting burger and everything means nothing....I would hate to try the other burger places in Philadelphia.

While visiting UPenn, my son wanted to try Bobby's place for dinner. I don't eat beef burgers, but found many alternative options to beef. They have turkey, chicken, and a veggie burger. I tried the veggie burger, and it was delicious. I would have liked an alternative choice to the bun--like whole wheat or multigrain or a less "bready" option... More

Bobby Flay's place, is great. It's not a cheap fast burger to go. They have so many options of how to have your burger. You can get turkey burgers and chicken breast as options, if you're not into beef. I have had them all. The milkshakes are..no words to express they're so good and if you want a little spirit...

It's a 70 mile round trip drive for me to come from the far Western Suburbs! But I gotta tell you it's well worth the trip. We pass 3 Shake Shacks to get here. I am CRUNCHIFIED!

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.
