Opened in 1953, B&G Tasty Foods recalls classic Americana with simple diner fare and a counter outfitted with stools made in 1926. Still drawing from its time-tested original menu, cooks sling meaty sandwiches, burgers, hot dogs, and jukebox-hitting leather jackets. B&G’s signature loose-meat sandwich, the Bee Gee, comes with a heap of french fries. Holding fast to a secret recipe with mysterious origins, the sandwich traps seasoned ground-beef between soft-steamed buns. Meals conclude with ice cream cones.
Those choosing the second option can seize other menu items, such as the quarter-pound hickory burger, bathed in barbecue sauce under hickory-smoked bacon and cheese. The gooey cheese Frenchee dunks traditional grilled cheese in crispy batter, far more satisfying than dipping tax returns into dark chocolate.
B&G Tasty Foods
Eddie Morin has fond memories of swinging his feet in a B&G Tasty Foods booth as he and his dad shared the Bee Gee, the eatery's signature loose-meat sandwich. During college, Eddie would craft his own Bee Gees as a B&G cook, cementing his love for the venerable restaurant, an area staple since 1953. So it's no surprise that in 2009, when the then-owner of B&G Tasty Foods considered closing, Eddie volunteered to take over ownership.
Since then, Eddie and his crew have undertaken extensive renovations of the space, expanding the dining area and increasing seating by half. As an homage to the restaurant's birth year, they had the logo redesigned in a retro style, and red-framed '50s-era advertisements now line the sage-green walls. Five antique Schwinn Stingray bicycles perch above tables, so diners who bring their own xylophone mallets can tap out their favorite Big-Bopper hits on the spokes.
Though the team also streamlined and updated the menu—adding items such as salads and a vegan hot dog—they opted to retain the original Bee-Gee recipe, which has remained the same since 1953, when Eddie's father developed it. Breading made from ground cornflakes crisps up the Cheese Frenchee and Bee Gee Frenchee. In addition to these, there is also a unique frenchee featured each month. Past iterations have included Nutella and banana breaded with graham crackers as well as a Thanksgiving-Day special with turkey and cranberry sauce breaded in stuffing.
