SquareBurger is a tasty addition to the Franklin Square line-up. Enjoy a great meal in beautiful surroundings, at family-friendly prices.

Now open, SquareBurger has a delicious expanded menu and is newly operated by Cooperage.

The signature Cake Shake blended with Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets®, will continue to be a highlight along with a changing Shake-of-the-Month and Burger-of-the-Month. Cooperage, which is owned by Cescaphe Event Group, is no stranger to the Old City neighborhood, operating Cooperage Wine and Whiskey Bar in the Curtis Center (123.
