Friday’s Last Spoonful: Field Trip
Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries
Sitting down to eat a meal at Boardwalk Burgers and Fries usually means heaping servings of fries and very satisfying burgers, which are made to order. David and Fran DiFerdinando founded their restaurant chain 1980. The brothers were inspired and sought to bring the classic and trademark boardwalk fries to places other than the boardwalks of Ocean City, Md. Look for medium-cut fries made from Idaho potatoes that are fried in peanut oil then lightly salted. Cooks leave the skin on and that adds an extra bite to every fry. Guests can add vinegar, black pepper, or Old Bay Seasoning to their liking as beachgoers do on the boardwalk. Meanwhile, signature (Mushroom Swiss or BBQ Bacon) and customized burger sandwiches can also be made-to-order. The single burger platter includes a medium-sized heap of fries and a regular- sized drink for under $10.00. The Mixed Stew crew recommends that you ensure that you ask the cooks to toast the bread when placing your order. Not in the mood for burgers or fries? The menu also lists chicken tenders, hot dogs, and salads. Look for a franchise near you.
