There are a world of options for burger top-age at Sketch but for our money the sirloin with lettuce, tomato and American is spot on. And you can't really argue with a side of green chile cheese fries.
If you're the type who finds veggie burgers patently objectionable, try Sketch's and see what you think. Stands apart from the rest.
Amazing Food At Affordable Prices – I've heard a whole lot of buzz about Sketch, and I'm kicking myself in the butt for not getting there sooner. Every time I try something new there, it becomes my new favorite. The Dr.Pepper pulled pork on a biscut is probably my favorite, but I'm sure next week something new will steal my heart. The last time I was there, the cupcake I had was possibly the best cupcake I've ever eatten in my life. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it.
A vegan-happy burger joint. – A vegan-happy burger joint that transcends its Fishtown address to beckon herb-and carnivores from all over town. It must be a testament to the tastiness of the food and the staggering assortment of vegan meals that this slightly cramped and almost divey burger joint nestled in the heart of commercial Fishtown hosts just as many middle-aged professional folk as the expected panoply of bike messenger types. But there they are, well-heeled families munching zestily on the messiest and juiciest of burgers--from veggie to turkey to sirloin to Kobe to the smashed onion burger. The regular menu comprises a few choices of fries and burritos and salads, plus the burgers and the vegan dishes, but it’s the daily specials like the ostrich and antelope burgers that really open up new channels in customers’ digestive systems. Cheerfully colored paint, a wide-open kitchen, owners who greet regulars warmly by name and blackboards that invite patrons to scribble their compliments all over the walls strike a comforting chord with one’s inner child, which could be the real reason behind Sketch’s popularity.
