Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck

Grass-fed beef burgers, hand-cut fries, made-to-order milkshakes, homemade bacon and a number of special sauces dot the reinvented burger menu at Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck. Honestly, they had us at ‘homemade bacon’.

Started by Matt “Feldie” Feldman, the LOS Truck, purchased from Renaissance Sausage, is outfitted with speakers that play jazz as you wait to order. And you’re in good ‘jazz’ hands; Feldman is quite the jazz aficionado himself. He used to host his own jazz show on G-Town Radio and has plans to open a jazz and burger joint in South Philly soon.

Not only are the burgers delicious, but the LOS Truck is committed to sourcing from a variety of local farms, like Green Meadow, and from the Common Market.

We recommend the LOS Burger (pictured above): Lancaster County grass-fed beef, housemade bacon, smoked cheddar, pickled tomatoes, sauteed onions and LOS sauce. It’s quite a handful, but goes perfectly with some hand-cut fries and a shake made with Bassett’s Ice Cream (we were fortunate to try the Maple Black Pepper). And, no need to leave your vegetarian friends behind when visiting LOS, they make their own veggie burgers too!

The Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck will be at Love Park every Tuesday and Thursday from 11:00AM – 3PM, even throughout the winter. To find them other days of the week or learn what their shake-of-day is, be sure to follow them on Twitter.

Trust us, you’ll get hooked on these locally sourced burgers, and the jazz isn’t half bad either!
