This place is eclectic and small. True to its name, sketch is a place that encourages you to sketch. Literally every inch of the place is covered from floor to ceiling in sketches done by patrons of the restaurant. The place was half full at 4pm on a Saturday, thank goodness we arrived when we did but it filled up... More

Not always easy to find parking, restaurant is small.....but its all worth it. These are some of the best burgers I've ever enjoyed. Plenty of meat on the bun and expertly prepared. Any time we want burgers in Philly, this is our go-to place!

Looking for a great tasting burger at an awesome establishment? Look no further. I frequent Sketch Burger, as I work fairly close to their Girard and Susquehanna location. Their burgers are HUGE (and quite delicious). Their vegan BBQ sauce? To die for! And perhaps the coolest thing about this place is the artwork from previous visitors that lines the walls.... More

Great sandwiches and salads, good local business. A little pricey for food, but at least it was tasty.

After going twice, I can say that the service wasn't great, but it also wasn't bad. Just not very welcoming or friendly and I felt hurried despite them being pretty empty. I'm tempted to give it a 3 instead of a 4, but I'm going to assume the negative aspects of my second visit were just an anomaly. My first... More

My boyfriend and I went here during my visit to Philly last week. I'd read about it and wanted to give it a go. It's a neighborhood joint so it's quaint but i loved the decor. Upcycled and functional. The staff was great! It was a Saturday evening so it was crowded and busy but good atmosphere helped the wait... More

Bugers are amazing. Personal favorite is the "Cyclops" which is topped with cheese of your choice, thick bacon, and a fried egg. Milkshakes are amzing too!

The walls are filled with customer's artwork...we heard, by word of mouth, that Sketch Burger had really good burgers. " Wow! that's an understatement." I ordered the "Cyclops" Burger which comes with a fried egg and it was delicious! We ordered cheese fries and sweet potato fries and they were cooked perfectly. You can pick from various sauces for dipping... More
