The hamburger, America’s national meal, has always been served during Independence Day cookouts and the competitive-eating portion of presidential debates. Take a patriotic bite with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of burgers, sandwiches, and barbecue at Bobby D's in Pemberton.
Bobby D's executive chef Ron Littig wields more than 20 years of industry experience to carefully craft a menu of American classics in a kitchen that stays open until the wee hours. Diners cast tongue nets toward appetizers such as a mug of Dockside chowder, brimming with clams, scallops, potatoes, and bacon ($5.50). Mac 'n' cheese, cornbread, or no-nonsense cops form unlikely partnerships with handheld fare including the Dallas burger, which flaunts certified Angus beef, chili, and monterey jack cheese ($8.99), or the cheesesteak sandwich with american, provolone, or swiss cheese ($8.99). In the barbecue arena, pitmasters dapple meats in house dry rubs and sauces before slow-smoking them over hickory and apple woods to build dishes such as the pulled-pork platter ($11.99), which, like Dr. Jekyll's mirror, offers a choice of two sides.
Diners can direct attention to Bobby D's 22 flat-screen plasma TVs airing sports packages, and hoards of kids or androids trying to master human body movements can play Wii on the eatery's 11'x8' high-definition TV. Live bands perform every weekend, and occasional comedy shows keep funnybones and oblique muscles ripped.
