Bobby’s Burger Palace in Lake Grove

Bobby’s Burger Palace in Lake Grove

Two years ago Bobby Flay opened up Bobby’s Burger Palace in the Smith Haven Mall in Lake Grove. We’re not sure what his thinking was on the location choice, since he spends most of his time in NYC (Roosevelt Field or even Walt Whitman malls would’ve been closer), but one thing is for sure; he’s bringing a unique flavor to Suffolk County with this burger dominated menu.

If you know Chef Flay (Iron Chef Bobby Flay, that is), you’re aware that he likes to play around with Southwestern flavors in his dishes. He’s included these flavor profiles, along with flavors from around the country, on his menu. There’s the Bobby Blue Burger, LA Burger, Miami Burger and more. Any burger can be crunchified by adding potato chips to the order. Beyond burgers, there is a healthy dose of fries, milkshakes and margaritas to round out your meal.

The decor is almost the opposite of some other burger joints that we know. It’s a modern southwestern interior (oranges and greens) with a windy counter, set up so that even when you’re sitting next to strangers, you feel as though you’re only sitting by yourself or those who you came with. The lighting, especially on top of the counter area mimics the design and pattern, blending in perfectly. Seating at tables is also good; set up for a quick meal, but not uncomfortable if you want to stay a little bit longer.

The menu hangs above the front desk, and that is where you put your order in. Once you place your order, it’s off to your table where waitstaff will bring you your food as it is ready.

We’ve eaten at BBP four times in two locations; the other one being Mohegan Sun Casino. We’ve never left unhappy and have always enjoyed our meal as well as the atmosphere. Next time, we’re going to get a little wild and try out some of the unique hamburger menu items to mix things up a little bit. You can only eat so many crunchburgers.
