The best thing about Fountain Porter in East Passyunk is that it serves a $5 burger at all times. And while this burger is pretty simple, with a lettuce-tomato-onion combo on a sesame seed bun, it has a perfectly-cooked patty that hits the spot. Besides the burger, you should come here for the long draft list, which changes every night, as well as the affordable wines by the glass and bottle. You’ll need to check their Instagram to know exactly what’s on tap, or you could just go in blind and be surprised - you won’t disappoint either way.
