It looks sort of like a psychedelic preschool, all Day-Glo colors and funky signs and crowdsourced artwork, but this small Philadelphia burger joint serves up an exquisitely simple, highly flavorful 8-ounce sirloin burger, served on a doughy white bun from a local bakery with sliced tomato, shredded lettuce, and a choice of sauces — among them hot mustard, BBQ, harissa aïoli, and (a surprising retro choice) green goddess. Sketch also serves a smashed onion burger, a truffle butter burger, and a Cyclops burger (with bacon and a fried egg), but why would you tamper with elementary success?

Get the fries, add chili if you're into that, you won't regret. Get any burgers, you will not be let down!

Get the Dr Pepper pulled pork on a biscuit, not a bun. So much better!

The Kobe beef burger, medium with avocado and pepperjack cheese. Get it and call it a day.

The peanut butter milkshake is heavenly! Also the fries taste great with the wasabi sauce.

Delicious vegan burgers and milkshakes but a bit pricey. Add onions for an extra dollar? Really? If they lowered their prices a little I'd probably go there everyday.

BYOB & customized Burgers - if you go with the Kobe burger, don't get anything on it.
