Franklin Square


historic philadelphia squareburger

Operated by one of Philadelphia’s most well-known restaurateurs, Stephen Starr, SquareBurger is a tasty addition to the Franklin Square line-up. Enjoy a great meal in beautiful surroundings, at family-friendly prices.

The SquareBurger menu features burgers, hot dogs, french fries, sundaes and, of course, it's famous shakes!

Try our signature shake, the Cake Shake, made with Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpet®, creamy vanilla ice cream, and a slight swirl of butterscotch.  Each month, the SquareBurger team comes up with a new way to tantalize your taste buds with the Shake of the Month - a limited time special shake to soothe your sweet tooth. To keep on the up-and-up, sign up for the Franklin Square newsletter!
