If You're Ever in the Neighborhood...

Kate and I spent a scintillating weekend at a tennis tournament in Manasquan, New Jersey.  We were there once before, back in January, and this trip was a big improvement over the last one.  Manasquan is located on the Jersey Shore and when we were there the first time there were piles of snow 10 feet high.  This time it was sunnier and all the snow had melted.  It still wasn't beach weather and we didn't run into Mike the Situation or Snooki.  But the sky was blue and it was beginning to feel like spring, even though it was only in the mid 30's.  Hey, I'll take what I can get.

The tennis tournament went well, but the highlight of the weekend was easily our trip to Bobby's Burger Palace.  BBP is owned by Bobby Flay and, I have to tell you, they make a delicious hamburger.  We went for dinner the last time we were on the "shore" and this time it was just as good.  You know how sometimes a repeat visit isn't quite as good as you remember it?  BBP was just as good as the first time.  I had the classic American hamburger and Kate had the same, only she had hers "crunchified".  I have to say, the addition of potato chips as a topping for the burger was truly inspired and quite tasty.  Let's face it, what isn't better with potato chips?  The sides were good too.   Last time we had both onion rings and sweet potato fries but we decided to show some self control this time.  We had only the onion rings.

I usually don't write about restaurants but BBP is so good, very inexpensive, and a lot of fun.  The seating is at counters and the stools not only have a comfy back but they also have a nice place to put your feet.  It's all very casual, which is the way a burger place should be.

So, if you're ever in the neighborhood, give Bobby's Burger Palace a try.
