The main reason to check out this old-school bar in Staten Island is their half-pound cheeseburger served on an English muffin. But once you’re here, take advantage of the huge new outdoor patio, where you can watch sports on TV any day between 11:30am-10pm (11pm Thursday-Saturday). During Yankees games, they offer a special that includes two hot dogs, fries, and a beer for $10.
