Jake’s Wayback Burgers Are Sizzling in the Suburbs


Rumors of a Philly Shake Shack have been circulating for what seems like forever. The latest word is that Danny Myers will open one right at Jose Garces’s back door at 20th and Sansom streets. But just as it did in Brooklyn this week, it’s looking like Jake’s Wayback Burgers will beat Shake Shack to the punch. Philadelphia Business Journal reports that the Connecticut-based burger joint will open a location in Springfield, Delaware County next month, and expects to open at least two more in the suburbs in the near future. And here we thought our burger moment was over and hot dogs were going to be the next cool thing.
