The Pittsburgh Umberger

Copabanana to unveil burger named after Phantoms rookie R.J. Umberger

Popular South Street restaurant Copabanana (4th and South) will be debuting its newest menu item on Monday at noon called the Pittsburgh Umberger, named after Phantom R.J. Umberger. The rookie center who grew up in Pittsburgh will be on hand to help cook and then be the first person to sample the new burger, which features fried onion rings and muenster cheese.

A 2001 first-round NHL Draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks, Umberger starred at Ohio State University before signing as a free agent with the Philadelphia Flyers organization last summer. The 22-year-old currently leads the Phantoms and ranks fifth among all AHL rookies in scoring with 45 points.

Located on South Street since 1978, Copabanana was selected as Philadelphia’s Best Burger by AOL and is a member of City Paper’s Burger Hall of Fame. Also specializing in Spanish fries, margaritas and barbecue and Tex-Mex platters, Copabanana also has locations at 40th & Spruce and 1619 Grant Ave.
