One of Long Island’s kitschiest, most nostalgic eateries is now part of history. Say goodbye to Long Island Cheeseburger, a brightly painted Wantagh building on Merrick Road where Elvis Presley, "The Honeymooners" and Betty Boop were part of the memorabilia theme.

Recalled from a past visit: a fat, juicy turkey cheeseburger and a meltingly fine Philly cheesesteak.
