Blue Star Burgers, Tenafly, NJ

Blue Star Burgers on Urbanspoon
Where: Blue Star Burgers, Tenafly, NJ
What: WOW Burger
Build: 1/2 pound 80/20 seasoned fresh ground chuck, pickle slices, raw onion, all on a bun made of 2 grilled cheese sandwiches. (somebody pinch me)
Comment: Blue Star Burgers has a fantastic attitude for building a truly great burger biz, but before I go any further, I'm going to state my one and only gripe as Jason and the folks at BSB deserve for their review to end on a high note. I am not on board with the "seasoned" meat - There, I said it.  If a "seasoned" burger (garlic & onion powder most predominant) was one of the menu items, I'd definitely get around to trying it out, but it would be my choice to stray from a juicy ground chuck burger and wander off down the seasoned, (meat-loafy), burger path. I was salivating at the special burger of the week on display on the front counter when I walked in. The King Kong burger had me at hello, but I stayed with my original choice, the WOW burger even though all the burgers on the Signature Burger menu had also grabbed my attention. Long story short, BSB is onto something very special here, they have all the makings of burger greatness, (minus the seasoned beef).  If the meat were pure ground chuck cooked in all it's juicy glory and seasoned with only salt and pepper I believe bollards on the sidewalk would be necessary to corral the line of people waiting to get in. But hey, like every other one of my now 163 burger reviews, that's only my opinion and we all know what opinions are like - nuff said. Before I forget, you can order the burger by size, 1/4 or 1/2 pound single or double which is a huge plus - (love that). The bun, toppings, ambiance, fantastic attitude, price, etc., were just what you look for when craving a great burger. Kudos to a valiant effort and I hope to have an "unseasoned" burger (if only on the special menu) at BSB one day...
This burger gets an 8.5 on the BC rating scale... 
(for me, unseasoned meat would yield 10/10 ratings across this menu)



























The aptly named, King Kong...





This is the BBLT (crispy smoked bacon, romaine lettuce, sliced tomato, bleu cheese dip) which my work colleague ordered.
