All American Hamburger in Massapequa

All American Hamburger in Massapequa

Living on this island for the better part of the last 30 years, we’ve never stopped into All American Hamburger in Massapequa, although we’ve passed it hundreds of times in the last few years alone. Our upcoming burger episode on FiOS1 Long Island’s Restaurant Hunter gave us the impetus to stop by and see what they’re all about.

Like a scene straight out of American Graffiti, generations of South Shore residents have been hitting up All American Hamburger for the past 40+ years. Not much has changed; the decor is still the same and the prices seem to have stayed below the national average for food. It’s refreshing to see a restaurant that you can take a family of four to and escape with an expenditure of less than $20 for everyone. The menu of hamburgers, hot dogs, fries, shakes and more starts at the very reasonable price of $1 and change for a single hamburger. Walk in, wait on line and order at the counter. They’re pretty quick, so if your order isn’t complicated, you should be out within a few short minutes.

Hit the restaurant during the busy lunch and dinner hours and the line can be out the door. That’s not something that should dissuade you from leaving, as it does go quick. Credit isn’t accepted, so be prepared with cash when you pay for your items. Seating is limited; with a few tables lining the exterior front of the restaurant and a bench or two on the side. On our visit more customers were eating inside of their cars in the parking lot than at the physical tables.

The plain quarter pounder that we ordered came simply; ketchup, pickles and sauteed onions. The burger delicious; wasn’t greasy and more than you would expect from a “fast food joint”. Now that we’re aware of the goodness that All American Hamburger can bring, we’ll be sure to visit more often in the future.
