  • At chef Jose Garces's upscale pub, order the eight-ounce Village Burger served on a sesame roll with house-made Thousand Island dressing.
  • Jose Garces' classic American bar, The Village Whiskey, serves over 80 whiskies and bar foods, like burgers paired with Duck Fat French Fries.
  • Most expensive burger in the city...It was amazing!
  • Great burgers!!! Always full but I have always had good service!
  • Like many other Garces restaurants (in my experience at least), the service is hit or miss, and often surprisingly rude. It's enough to almost ruin the experience. That said, the food/whiskey rocks.
  • Try the Tater tots. The duck fat fries may get all the attention at Jose Garcess bar, but his version of the frozen-food-aisle favorite is the real spud-centric star.
  • The Village Whisky burger is the best burger I've had in a LONG time
  • Every list of Philly's top burgers includes Jose Garces' Rittenhouse Square bar, whose specialty burger is served on a sesame-seed roll with tomato, Bibb lettuce & Thousand Island dressing.
  • "Ive tried a different whiskey almost every time Ive been to Village. And Ive been there a lot."
  • Its small, its crowded, and getting through the door on a busy night can be a nightmare. But nothing in the world pairs quite so well as a $70 pour of whiskey, neat, and a $3 order of tater tots.
  • Best Burger in Philly. Also get the "Irish Car Bomb" desert.
  • The burger is a "thing of beauty."
  • The burger is just plain ol' delicious. Such a guilty pleasure.
  • My favorite burger in Philadelphia.
  • The Harvest Moon made with apple brandy, warm spiced cider and honey is perfect for seeing off this week's frigid #PolarVortex. Pair with an order of tater tots.
  • They're not on the options list but the pickled beets are amazing on the burger. Especially good with a fried egg.
  • Order the thick-cut, bacon-topped Whiskey King burger from Iron Chef Jose Garces' acclaimed whiskey bar, which earned 2 bells from critic Craig LaBan. You won't be disappointed.
  • Rumor has it the Whisky King burger is the BEST BURGER EVER... I have not personally had it but their other burgers are fantastic too.
  • The tater tots are light, crispy and airy. Well worth a try for the price.
  • The Duck Fat Fries are mandatory. Stop reading this and order them... What are you waiting for??
