Franklin’s Table probably came into existence as kind of a quasi-cafeteria for college students, but it’s turned into an outpost for some of the best restaurants in Philly to serve more casual stuff that can be picked up in between classes or on your way home from the gym. Kensington Quarter’s spot in the hall is called KQ, and it serves a short menu of mostly sandwiches (plus fries and pickled vegetables). The only thing you really need to focus on here, though, is the classic burger, which comes topped with cheddar, KQ sauce, and roasted red onions, and is one of the best burgers in the city.
