While visiting my parents in Long Island, I was in the mood to grab a burger for lunch. My dad mentioned that he had passed a burger shack in Oyster Bay recently, so we decided to check it out. As we drove down Pine Hollow Road, we spotted the Joe’s Burger Shack sign and pulled up to a house that was converted into a 1950’s style diner.
One of the very first things I noticed from the outdoor furniture to the inside decor was that this place proudly displayed the colors red, white & blue. The patriotism that adorned this place instantly put a smile on my face. Frank greeted us with a warm welcome and allowed us to look over the menu without pressing us to order quickly. My dad ordered the bison burger which came highly recommended, and my plain, boring, food issue self got a burger with mushrooms.
If you’re looking for a really good, juicy burger then you HAVE to check out this place! (And definitely check out the bison burger!) They also have milk shakes that looks amazing – I would have gotten one in a heartbeat if I wasn’t allergic to dairy. (It’s a major curse I tell you!). OH! And not to mention the fried oreos!
The staff was super friendly and made you feel at home, and the atmosphere in itself made this a comfortable place to eat along with great comfort food. Plus you’ll be supporting a local, patriotic establishment, and what’s better than that!?
