When it starts to get dark, Burger Deluxe turns Route 23 into a little slice of Vegas. Neon lights illuminate the restaurant's exterior, and a giant clock glows above the entrance. Inside, the decor is toned down a bit, though it remains whimsical in its own right. Pink marshmallow light fixtures sway from the ceiling, infusing an extra dose of retro flair into a space that already includes a classic diner counter and its battalion of swivel chairs. The restaurant's throwback vibe is reflected in its menu, which includes 22 different half-pound Angus burgers, milk shakes, and all-day breakfast options. Those with an especially deep love for burgers don't have to name their firstborn child French Onion Burger or BBQ American Burger—instead, they can join the 100 Burger Club and get their name emblazoned on the club's dining room plaque.
Tommy Chengs' chefs consolidate the flavors of China, Japan, and Thailand into a single kitchen. The menu of Asian indulgences is well suited to fit any budget, from lunchtime Japanese-style bento boxes that neatly arrange bites of beef teriyaki or pork katsu alongside shumai, rice, and soup or salad, to lavish platters of peking duck and sumptuous 17-piece sushi dinners for two. The BYOB restaurant stays open until 10 p.m. every night of the week, excluding every February 31.
At TapHouse Grille, 24 different craft beers gush from taps as plates of gourmet pub fare emerge from the kitchen. Chefs shower pastas and pizzas in fresh meats and vegetables or whip up entrees that feature freshly caught fish and quality cuts of meat. In addition to imported and domestic brews, the family-friendly establishment pleases adults with martinis and cocktails, and it treats tots to a full kids' menu and an absence of height-restrictive carnival rides.
Brick walls and ceilings and glistening wood floors surround the casual dining room, where flat-screen televisions beam down from the walls. TapHouse Grille also hosts special events throughout the week, including a Sunday brunch buffet with a live jazz band.

Most meat enthusiasts can conjure up their dream burger, but few, like the chefs at 25 Burgers, make those dreams a reality 25 times over. Patties made predominantly with USDA-certified Angus beef come sandwiched between buns made in-house everyday along with toppings that range from bacon and cheese to slow-roasted pulled pork and homemade spicy chili. Beef alternatives include four boneless chicken burgers, a naturally raised buffalo-meat patty marinated in chipotle seasonings, and a black-bean burger handmade from scratch.
For diners who don't see their ideal burger among the restaurant's 25, a build-your-own option lets them crown a quarter pound of beef with toppings such as onion straws, fried egg, or guacamole. Fixings such as sauerkraut and melted cheddar, meanwhile, top specialty all-beef hot dogs, and plates of fries come smothered with cheese, chili, or spices. Fountain drinks or five milk-shake flavors?Oreo and peanut butter among them?complement sandwiches and sides.
