Yeah yeah… 50’s style Diner – A more Marilyn Monroe 50’s style joint than, say, Johnny Rockets. I get the theme.
You walk in, and you start thinking ‘this is gonna be good…’

The staff are the pimple-faced teenagers, as opposed to the old lady type. They seat you and give you their special instructions. All this is normally great, but, unfortunately, here it’s a bit manufactured. Is the menu really that complicated? This seems like an attempt to make you think that they are a SpeciaL burger joint.

What’s good about the burgers is that you can have as many toppings as you like. This gave me an excuse to try the infamous heinz 57 sauce. I will have to experiment with that on my own now. Other than that, the burger itself tasted bland. They cover it up with so many condiments, they probably figure it doesnt matter as much about taste of the actual meat. Understandable.

The burgers can get up there in price. They make you feel like a pansy if you get only a 1/3 lb burger. Well, I stopped worrying about that a while ago. Fries (nothing special at all) come with nothing, so its 6 dollars for a burger. One cheeseburger.

If you are 12 and your parents are paying for it , I fully recommend Cheeburger Chee. Otherwise, get real, go to Fairway and make it yourself. Don’t feel like cooking? try Majors Steakhouse, try 5 Guys, try All-American. Point being: try something else.

  1. What a terrible place.
    I like my burgers rare or at least medium rare but the burger nazis here won’t consider it. Makes you wonder about the quality of their meat.

  2. Keith, it’s these big corporations who are afraid some pimpled kid is going to give a customer salmonella. so many rules. they don’t care about the food, they care about putting you in a line straight to the cash register.

  3. hey anyone know if this resturant is good please email me thanks i am thinking about going here with my friends..thankss

  4. In regards to the meat, it is actually the best meat out there: premium black angus beef from Creekstone farms.

    The fries are made fresh numerous times a day along with the onion rings… freshly battered for your order.

    The reason why corporate doesn’t allow “rare” burgers are for people who claim they got food poisoning from a cheeburger.

    And Samantha…. yes this place is good, you and your friends will love it.

    And try 5 guys or All American if you feel like visiting the bathroom soon after.

  5. Cheeburger Cheeburger is GREAT! and so is All American in Massapequa and American Roadside in Smithtown or Huntington and Five Guys in Bethpage is ok.

    Samantha if you and your friends like Burgers you have to try all of these.
