Hamburgers are modeled after Victorian-era architecture, a style known for its sesame-seed-dusted roofs, flowing lettuce curtains, and meat everywhere. Feast ornately upon a well-formed feeding frenzy with today’s Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of burgers, salads, shakes, and other classic American eats at Burger DeLuxe in Wayne.
With pink light fixtures, brightly colored counter stools, and a menu of fresh, quality ingredients, Burger DeLuxe is a modern throwback to the diners from the kitschiest part of 20th-century America. Burger DeLuxe uses a custom blend of Creekstone Farms Natural and Premium Black Angus beef to craft its burger centerpieces. The mushroom and swiss burger ($9.75) tops a beef patty with swiss cheese and sautéed mushrooms, and the au poivre burger ($9.75) wears a dashing black peppercorn crust and an elegantly tailored coat of brandy-peppercorn sauce. Substitute beef with a turkey, chicken, or veggie patty ($1.00 extra). Molyvos greek salad ($8.95) keeps things traditional with feta cheese, kalamata olives, and a pantheon of mischievous gods in lettuce togas. Pair any meal with Disco fries, served with mozzarella and brown gravy ($5.75), or a milkshake, which comes in traditional flavors like pomegranate and caramel or unusual selections such as chocolate and vanilla ($4.95).
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.
