One of nature's most perfect foods, the hamburger is loaded with protein, receptive to all manner of condiments, and easily transported by unicycle. Get both hands on this versatile meat with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of gourmet burgers, sliders, drinks, and more at Bella’s Burger Shack in Basking Ridge.
Bella’s expansive menu is highlighted by never-frozen gourmet burgers, sliders, and hot dogs served on fresh-baked breads. Protein patties are hand-shaped from grade-A meat and grilled to order, and french-style fries are hand-cut before getting their hands on crispy coats ($3). Customize a basic burger with any of Bella's 10 toppings ($4.50), or leave decisions to the chef's magic 8 ball by selecting a specialty bovine disc such as the Breakfast burger, topped with Taylor ham, cheese, and a fried egg ($5.25). Sliders offer a more manageable meal for the light of appetite ($1.99+), and hot dogs ($2.49+), sandwiches ($4+), and wings ($4.50+) round out the meaty menu.
With its blonde-wood picnic seats and large oceanesque wall mural, this fast-casual burgerie offers a comfortable and unpretentious dining environment. Catch up with an old friend over a tasty burger, or let an order of spud strings and a cold soda buffer a heated debate about the Shakespearian influences in The Lion King.
Bella’s Burger Shack
For some, the test of a good burger is how juicy its center remains after coming off the grill. For others, satisfaction correlates with the number of condiments the bun can hold. When Bella was a child, her test was simple: if the burger was good, it would make her hum a little song. At least that's the story Bella's father tells.
Today, the team at Bella’s Burger Shack aims to inspire that same musical urge in its patrons. The cooks primarily do so with grade-A, never-frozen Bella burgers, served on Martin's potato bread beside steaming sides of hand-cut fries. Signature bacon-wrapped and deep-fried dogs also whet customers' humming whistles, aptly washed down with Wild Bill’s Olde Fashioned soda, always free of high-fructose corn syrup, or a creamy Bella milk shake.
