A beachy surf-shack motif and an inexpensive burger-centric menu draw a family crowd to KB’s Burger Shack in Patchogue, a new restaurant in a century-old, bi-level house. Its previous occupant was Mickey Felice’s.
Dinner, on a recent evening, began with house-fried potato chips, a weakness of mine. Something else I can never resist: a pig (hot dog) in a blanket. This one ($5.95) was rolled in puff pastry, served with mustard and sauerkraut. Wicked good stuff.
I was also impressed with the thick, juicy, beefy “Santa Fe” burger ($10.95), served on an English muffin and topped with avocados and caramelized onions in a balsamic garlic chipotle reduction. Too bad the fries served on the side were the previously frozen sort.
KB’s Burger Shack is at 411 W. Main St., Patchogue, 631-627-6677
