Great cut, friendly staff. I made an appointment online and everything went smoothly. Normally I go to sulimay's but this place is open on Sundays and just as good.

Not a good first impression. First time trying this spot, showed up for my 5:30 appointment with Mike, introduced myself, and he asks me to have a seat and wait and then begins taking another client. I didn't say anything until he asked me a few minutes later (out loud in front of everyone) if I don't just want to have my hair cut with one of the other barbers instead since he still had two more clients ahead of me and estimated it would take an hour. Didn't even apologize or excuse himself. He put me in an awkward position and I went ahead with the other barber who was very sweet and tried to give me the cut I wanted but came short--the side fade is way too high. Don't come here if you're looking for a place that works on an appointment system (I found out that my experience is not unique here). FYI I would not have left this review based on the cut alone.read more

I was a walk in from out of town and desperately needed a cut. Carlos squeezed me into his already busy schedule no questions asked. One of the best haircuts I’ve ever received. Will be coming back next time I’m in Philly! Great barbershop!read more

One of the chicks there did my cut. Not gonna mention her name but she rushed for no reason and there was no one after me. She cut my hair and then sat in the chair on her phone. She was aggressive with the haircut and using the knife to shave the hairs on my neck. I showed her a picture of the cut I wanted and she did not deliver. I will come back just not with her, this place is awesome just had a bad experience.read more

I won't get my haircut anywhere else. Carlos has been my guy for almost two years and I can honestly say it's the best cut & fade I've gotten anywhere in the city. The online booking is a breeze, the ambiance of the shop is great, and there's almost always available street parking every time I'm there. If you want to look your best, you gotta get your haircut at Burke & Payne.read more

I stopped by Burke & Payne for a haircut today and it was another reminder that Jenna is one of the best barbers in Philly. Jenna has cut my hair since I moved to the city in 2015 and I leave the barber chair looking better than when I sat down every single time. As my tastes and hair have changed, she has been able to accommodate different requests and styles because of her experience. And beyond the haircut, I appreciate that she's always there to hear me out and gives good advice.read more

#PHILLYSBESTBARBERBurke & Payne Barber Co. Is easily the best barber shop in Philly. If you don't agree, you've probably never been. I've been having my hair cut by Mikey Burke for 20 years. Widest range of any barber in Philly. From skin tight fades for summer, to complete scissor cuts for a gentleman look over the winter. I'm very demanding when it comes to my hair. They ALWAYS answer the call. These guys are steadily busy so I'd suggest booking online vs. walking in. Besides Michael, Carlos & Steve are excellent barbers as well. Take your pick with who does your cut, you really can't go wrong. Also, this is the sister shop to Michael's original baby: "Barber on 24th" on the northwest corner of 24th and Lombard, one of the busiest and most well known shops in South Philly. If you study or work at UPENN, you already know it. Depending on which side of town you reside these are the only two spots to go. Take my word, you won't be disappointed..read more

Have been going to Burke and Payne for nearly two years. It took me forever to find the perfect barbershop in Philly and this place is it. I go to Carlos. Great dude. The best cuts ever. Everyone here is knowledgeable about hair in ways that I couldn’t imagine and it’s part of a fun, laid back atmosphere where you can shoot the breeze while getting a cut. Always recommend this place to friends looking for a new shop.read more

I have been here about a dozen times and almosy every time has been great. The barbers are knowledgeable and efficient and are willing to work with you on the style you want. I had one bad experience where the barber had trouble concentrating, but outside of that I have left with great results.I recommend this place for your regular haircuts.read more

Having bounced from barber to barber I was very frustrated. There was always a feeling of not being completely satisfied after each visit. Until I came here tonight! A very welcoming staff got my in and got me freshened up even though i was shaggy when i came in. Got my haircut 4 hours ago roughly and have been getting compliments ever since. Will be back! Definitely recommend!read more

I been a client of Steve’s for awhile. Always treated me with professionalism and my cut always came out perfect. I don’t agree with Jacklyn Pryor comments and trying to defame him. He has always treated me and any of my boy or girlfriends that I have referred with respect no matter what race or gender they are!!!read more

Hands down best barbershop I’ve ever been to. I personally go to my man Carlos and knock on wood i can say 100% of the cuts I’ve got from him have been more than satisfactory. The fades are tight and the cuts are clean. The barbershop is also clean and socially distanced for covid which can be appreciated. Coming from a guy who used to switch barbers ever 2 months, its safe to say I recommend this shop and especially Carlos for your haircuts.read more

Initially gave them 1 star for a really poor haircut but received a really professional response from the store’s owner who rectified the situation and got a great clean up today from Bud who was super pro. These guys run a really professional business and I should note that they were really really meticulous with their sanitation after each customer which is important these days.read more

I don’t normally leave reviews but for $30 I am not really happy with my cut. The top is ok but he messed up my sideburns and did a sloppy job. I know we wear masks but for this price should be a better cut. This was my first time coming here.read more

I moved out of the city and still make the drive downtown to get my haircut at Burke and Payne. The entire team is awesome and the vibes in the shop are great. Carlos is the man! He’s always on time and works fast while delivering a high quality haircut every time. The shop is clean and the staff is covid safe. You can’t go wrong getting a cut from Carlos then a pizza from Angelos, it’s the perfect way to start your weekend.read more

I've been using Burke & Payne for haircuts since 2018. I have moved between Burke & Payne barbers due to scheduling conflicts over the years. Every barber I've received a cut from has been excellent (4 in total). I have currently been with Bud for about two years and the service and quality of cuts are incredible. Bud's friendly, attentive, remembers your tastes, and is willing to make suggestions when applicable (without ever being pushy). I cannot recommend this shop enough. As an added bonus, there always seems to be something exciting going on in the neighborhood (Angelo's is next door). If you're looking for a new barber shop, give this one a shot.read more

Went to Carlos this morning because I live on the same block as B&P but kept sleeping on it. My normal guy in Fishtown started slacking 🧹 Carlos actually listened to me and knocked it out of the park. This guy is the best I’ve gone too in Philly. Also he’s insanely outgoing and a super chill and easy to know guy. My new spot exclusively.read more
