If you are in the mood for burgers than you just might want to get in your car and head directly to Foster’s Grille in Nesconset. Open for a year Foster’s Grille has built up a strong base of repeat customers as well as new comers who stop by after learning of Foster’s by word of mouth. Many like myself, drive past and decide to check it out. Foster’s is located on Smithtown Blvd., north of the Ace Hardware shopping center.
On a recent visit my order included the purchase of a burger with cheese, jalapeño’s and ketchup. The order came with fries. I would not normally go out for a burger but I can tell you that I was glad I did. It was wonderful, it was cooked the way I like (medium) and I confess to eating the whole burger, which was substantial. Eating the burger did not leave much room for fries, which I passed on to my son. He enjoyed them on top of his order of a burger with cheese, bacon, tomato, ketchup, mayonnaise and chili fries. In addition to his order he had a coke and a strawberry milk shake. I had water. (Did I mention he is seventeen)?
My son is not new to Foster’s Grille and chooses to go there whenever he is in the mood for a burger. According to my son it’s a no brainer if the burgers at Foster’s are the best, (his opinion) why go elsewhere.
But, Foster’s is not just burgers they have wings that are above average in size and Sandwich’s that are so memorable that there is a couple that comes from Queens to enjoy them (I heard this straight from the owners wife Teri). Why? What makes Foster’s food so delicious? It’s the freshness of the food. Foster’s receives deliveries of fresh bread and meat everyday. The food is not soaked in lard, no peanut oil, it’s fresh and it is charbroiled and it is quite good.
If you need more of a reason to go to Foster’s than you should know that they host an Old Car and Music night every Thursday. The Thursday, I visited there was a guitarist named Bobby who played “70’s” music.
On the night I frequented Foster’s I was surprised by the number of people in the restaurant. There were families, seniors and singles. The food is a little pricey and you do have to fill out an order sheet and place your order yourself but there is staff to bring the food to the table. And there is a value in knowing that you are getting fresh food in a clean environment. Go on a Thursday and you may even enjoy some music with your food.
