American Roadside Burgers, Smithtown: You order at the counter at this burger-centric spot that's done in a nostalgic roadhouse motif. Here, burgers come out juicy, even though they're well done. Toppings are free, so you can pile on house-roasted jalapenos, red onion, relish and pickles. Gluttons can order the Roadstar -- essentially four burgers under one bun. Other options include a turkey burger, grilled chicken sandwich, kosher hot dog, chicken Caesar salad and shakes. Photo Credit: Newsday / Rebecca Cooney
