Not too long ago I had a burger dinner with friends, Vinny and Melissa, at Sketch in Fishtown. Sketch and it’s multicolored storefront are located on the north side of Girard Avenue, you can’t miss this place!

sweet potato fries

Melissa constantly talked about sweet potato fries and how superior they were, especially compared to regular fries. Lucky for us, Sketch’s sweet potato fries were on special that night. We started off with an order of those. I haven’t had sweet potato fries often, but these were pretty good. They were slightly crispy with a soft inside. It also came out with a chipotle sauce. Only bummer is that most of the fries were about an inch or less long. That made for annoying fry eating.

Sketch’s menu was pretty huge and I definitely took a little bit before I decided what to order. All the burgers are made with an 8 oz. patty and are served on a LeBus country white bun with shredded lettuce, tomato, and choice of sauce. I went with a medium rare beef burger with blue cheese, grilled onions, and chipotle sauce. A couple bites in, I realized that it was cooked more than medium rare. Luckily, the burger was still pretty juicy and tasty. Also, the bun held up pretty well and didn’t crumble apart into my container.

If you find yourself in Fishtown and are craving a burger, stop in at Sketch and check it out!

    Sketch is my favorite burger place in Philly so far. I would eat there every night if I could.

    Sketch! They need to just do away with the regular SPF’s and just do the waffle cut. Far superior.
