PYT restaurant... (with a drawing of a margarita to explain the P, a vinyl record to explain the Y, and a burger to explain the T) You think just once a Hipster restaurant could think of a restaurant name that makes sense rather than one that "hasn't been done before". 'Heart Attack Burger' would be more accurate, plus it would bring in more patrons for the menu options they offer.

Since pork belly IS bacon, it's a ground bacon burger covered with bacon. And to think I remember back when the Simpson's Good Morning Burger was a totally over the top and edgy joke.

BTW, their website in case you're wondering why I said this http://pytphilly.com/ (bonus: the picture they used is a woman in a leather jacket looking disgusted at the burger she ordered, I bet it makes anyone want to go there right now! :-P )

Only in America can a six foot tall two hundred and fifty pound man like myself feel not that fat.

Wow. Their website is annoying. Is it the bright, busy background? The kiddy font? The scrolling blog format of disgusting-looking hamburgers? Especially that bonus picture, right there above the fold?

Points for efficiency -- the menu's right there, and there's no flash wall -- but for the love of all that is holy make the top photo smaller, clean up the tagline/location/hours box, and dim the wallpaper lights.

Gah.

I would say it is a mix of everything to make it bad which you described, plus with all the child themed fonts you would think they wouldn't but yes they have "adult shakes" (strangely enough, no regular shakes are listed) which are various concoctions of shakes with liquor in them.

Well, I do add points for the efficiency with the menu as you said, but subtract points for lack of information. Such as, the only reason I know that their restaurant is "Cash Only" is because of the 'Bonus Photo' of the twinkie burger has a sign behind the disgusted girl that says "Cash Only - ATM is located to the right." (really expensive place too for it to be cash only, their least expensive burger [basic cheeseburger] is $10 bucks!) Plus the only photo of the outside of the place (to know what storefront I am looking for, on the outside chance I decide I want to sample their Hipster clogged artery death burgers!) is shown on the second to last "Burger Club" photo, and you have to go to the last page of photos in order to reach it! It's just an amalgamated mess of bad design, bad burgers, and evil Hipsters!

There is actually a kind of real cheese called American cheese. It's not to be confused with the poor imitation that fast food joints often try to pass off under the same name, or cheese "singles" available in supermarkets that might have American in the name.

Fine - if you have to be all fancy, squirt some Cheez Whiz on it.

There's a brewpub not far from where I live that has a "heart-stopper burger" which consists of a cheeseburger topped with bacon and an egg.  It... it's beautiful.

They also have a fantastic selection of their own brews.

/I sound fat, and hungry.

It's the difference on the packaging between "American Cheese" and "American Cheese food product"

At least they're honest about their products at the brewpub, plus it doesn't sound that bad. (sounds like Steak and Eggs, cept the steak is ground up!) The reviews of PYT restaurant are consistently bad (usually from the non-Hipsters, the Hipsters seem to give it unending praise) from just Google (over 140 reviews); small burgers, slow service, and employees who insult you (including the manager/owner) for not "understanding" their meal when something is left out (one review said the bacon was missing in a burger that clearly listed bacon as an ingredient, no special request to remove it!) or wrong. Just makes me glad there is news stories like this that tell me to stay away when I wander somewhere I haven't been before!

/don't worry about sounding fat, this is a thread about a restaurant, talk of food makes me hungry too!
