Yet P'unk delivers where it counts, with delicious made-to-order burgers cooked to each patron's liking. They even offer a host of awesome toppings and sauces to complete the picture. Many of these sauces are vegetarian, so those looking to put up a healthy front (or those watching their waistlines) can be happy here.

The owners of Slice Pizzerias in South Philly, Marlo and Jason Dilks are also the owners and operators of P'unk Burger. They pride themselves on their ability to serve organic, locally sourced patties; gluten-free rolls; vegan options; and eco-friendly packaging in addition to just plain good and tasty food.
Available meats include beef, ahi tuna and poultry, as well as soy-free veggie burgers. Sides include hand-cut fries, onion rings, fried mozzarella, pickle chips and tater tots.
Complement that delicious combination with a milkshake (and the ability to choose a milk from a selection of almond, soy or whole) and add a flavor (chocolate, vanilla or black and white, which is a combination of vanilla and Nutella). There are also milkshake flavors of the week and scoops of ice cream for dessert.

If these combinations bring back memories of enjoying food just like this with relatives and friends in days gone by, then that's what it's supposed to do. Harkening back to a simpler time – with simple ingredients and unprocessed and locally sourced products – means meals are just what they're advertised as, and nothing more.
Stop by, grab a seat, play an arcade game or two, eat a meal, enjoy dessert and be on your way. Why can't all things be this simple?
One of the best things about P'unk Burger is that it's also open late on weekend nights. For patrons who happen to be out and about and not interested in calling it a night just yet, they can stop by for some delicious sustenance. Just remember that this new hotspot is cash-only, although there is an ATM on-site.
The restaurant is BYOB and includes room for about 25 to 30 guests at a time. The best seat in the house is right in the front window with an arcade table-top game.
Yet no matter where patrons sit, they'll be able to appreciate the casual, adult- and kid-friendly environment; good food; fair prices; and eco-friendly grub and packaging P'unk Burger prides itself in serving up.
Sounds like a win-win for everyone.
