Amazing Burger Joint in Doylestown

Actually - it recently opened. It used to be "Stuff It" and is now basically burgers. It's an old-school just a burger joint - nothing special...just great meat.

Amazing Burger Joint in Doylestown

I just stumbled upon a fantastic new burger joint that opened in Doylestown, PA called Basically Burgers. The menu is amazing and includes Beef, Salmon, Ostrich and Bison Burgers along with amazing fries, shakes and Nathan's hot dogs! To top it off, it is family owned and operated, so you get that personal touch that I really like when dining out.

It's located at 12 W. State St. in downtown Doylestown (just across the street from Starbucks).

I highly recommend it to anyone craving a fantastic burger.

Check it out: http://www.basicallyburgers.com (seems like it is still under construction)

Inexpensive Dinner in South Jersey area Monday Night

We ended up going to Norma's Mediterranean & Middle Eastern Restaurant and it was amazing. Very good food and for four of us (completely stuffed) it cost $120. I highly recommend it to those in the area looking for some good cuisine.

Thanks. Right now we are booked at Aloe. Although, we may end up at Norma's Mediterranean & Middle Eastern Restaurant or Forno Pizzaria & Grille. Both have fantastic reviews on Yelp... we will see. Wherever I end up, I will post on here.

Inexpensive Dinner in South Jersey area Monday Night

I am looking for a decent, somewhat inexpensive dinner in the South Jersey area tonight (Monday Night) somewhere between Philly and Trenton, NJ. My GF and I want to meet a friend and his wife 1/2 between the two areas. Any suggestions? It could be South Jersey or somewhere down 95, but for traffic reasons, something off of 295 would be the best!

Thanks!

Business Dinner in Princeton, NJ Area [Moved from Tristate Region board]

I have to take out clients and their wives out this Saturday night in the Princeton, NJ area. I am looking for a place with great food, nice ambiance, and the price doesn't matter (big time clients and it's on the company). Not interested in Indian food or anything spicy...

Foodies...any thoughts?

Thanks,

Birthday Dinner in Napa

I know this is a little late, but my girlfriend's birthday is Monday and I am looking for a unique, fun, great food place to take her to celebrate. Cost is not really a concern (as long as the bill is less than $200 without booze), we really want great food. We know the norms Mustards, Big Fish, etc...

Thoughts?

Thanks Foodies!!

Jazz in Philadelphia

Hello Foodies. This is my first official post and I thought it should be a meaningful one. I was in Philadelphia this past weekend and uncovered Ortlieb's Jazzhaus in the Northern Liberties section of Philadelphia. Located in residential area of the city, Ortlieb's has fantastic house Jazz band including a gentlemen "Sid" who has his Gold record sitting next to him while he is on the piano. The food, very New Orleans-esq was fantastic (I highly recommend the ribs as they fell apart and had a little kick to them) and the ceaser salad with amazing jalapeno fried polenta croutons. They also had crab cakes and jambalaya that folks said is amazing. Check them out at http://ortliebsjazzhaus.com. To boot, it was rated one of the top 10 jazz clubs in the country by Playboy and have been known to have famous musicians pop-in after playing in Philly to the likes of Harry Connick Jr and others.

I highly recommend this place...

Happy eating!
