Instead, they start with fresh Angus beef patties that have never been frozen, and layer them with toppings, sauces, and cheeses. The chefs show off their flavor-pairing skills with creative Burger of the Month specials?past specials have included the Reuben burger topped with pastrami, sauerkraut, a fried egg, and chipotle mayo, and a new twist on the Juicy Lucy, a patty stuffed with four different cheeses and loaded with bacon and fried julienne sweet potatoes. All the burgers pair perfectly with fresh-cut Idaho fries cooked to a golden crisp, and if you leave room for dessert, you can choose from fried Oreos and milkshakes blended with a choice of candy. For the non-burger-lover, the shop also serves sauce-slathered wings, and hot dogs served in the New York or Chicago styles.

For 25 years, Long Island's crew has made bagels using an old-fashioned water-kettle approach, purveying the doughy treats well beyond their breakfast boundaries. A menu of breakfast edibles urges early eaters to slather an assortment of hand-rolled, freshly baked bagels ($0.90)—in varieties including poppy, onion, cinnamon raisin, and oat bran—with their choice of up to 17 creamy toppers ($1.75+) including vegetable, chocolate chip, and roasted garlic and herb. Coffee ($1.45+/12 oz.) gives nerves the jolt that early-morning fire breathing fails to provide, and french toast lightens spirits when drizzled in streams of liquefied giggles ($5.50). Lunch options allow midday munchers to fill their food processors with dishes including the Bubbalicious ($6.79)—made with fried chicken cutlets, melted mozzarella, bacon, and spicy barbecue sauce, all piled on top of a bagel—or the more heart-heartening bagel-embedded tuna fresco salad ($6.49).
