Brand New: Blue Star Burgers, Tenafly, NJ

2013-06-05 16.07.45

Boozy Burbs first posted about Blue Star Burgers in Tenafly in late April.  Right on track with owner Jason Greenfest’s schedule, Blue Star has opened in early June. In fact they opened Friday, June 6, 2013 at 35 Washington Avenue, the former home of Unidentified Flying Chickens in Tenafly.

Not a whole lot has changed in his vision or plans since that previous post. Beef burgers will be made with fresh ground 80/20 chuck (choose from 1/4 lb or 1/2 lb) with chicken and portobello mushroom as options for the burger “patty”. Burgers choices range from composed menu items, specials or the create-your-own variety.

There are 4 buns to pick from (including one that is gluten free) and burgers can be made regular or meatloaf-style, which is when all the topping choices are mixed-in. Additions to the burgers include a number of cheeses, 15 or so toppings and a few of sauces. If you so desire, the 1/2 pound beef patty can be ordered to a specific temperature. View Menu (PDF)

The sides and appetizers section of the menu has no less than 13 options. Everything from chicken fingers, wings, fried mushrooms, pickle chips, haystack onions and fries (sweet potato too). Wings are served with both the drumette and wingette connected, which makes for a double order (a five wing order is really a ten wing order). Many of the sauces served across the board are homemade and vary from standard (bleu cheese dressing) to spicy & original (Rocket sauce). All are available as a side with any dish.
