More than a year and a half ago, I set out to find some of the city’s best burgers after sampling ones in South Philly, Center City and Northern Liberties. Some restaurants earned high marks because the chefs know how to grill a perfect burger.

Summers spent at the Jersey Shore were filled with food, fun, fishing, beach days, rainy days and long walks. There were no casino when I was a girl, but there were chic, luxurious hotels such as the Traymore and the Shelburne.
Texas native Jack Cooper has spent 16 years in Philadelphia, 12 of them in South Philly, and has developed many pastimes during the period, including observing the city’s frequently gray skies. Fortunately for local lovers of comfort food, the 43-year-old revels in being a hunger halter, too, a role that he perfects at Sam’s Morning Glory Diner, 735 S. 10th St.
