The is an institution in Stony Brook, whether you're stopping by for ice cream or for a full meal. Either way, you can't go wrong. And if it's a meal you're after, we highly recommend the turkey burger.
The Dish: Turkey Burger with Side Salad ($13.95)
What's Inside: A grilled turkey patty on a soft, warm whole wheat bun served with lettuce, tomato and onion. It comes with a cranberry mayonnaise spread; cheese optional.
Eat this Because: The turkey burger won't leave you hungry – or feeling as guilty as a different kind of burger might. Turkey patties generally have fewer calories and less fat than beef patties. The cranberry mayonnaise spread is a sweet complement to the burger, and for this Patch editor, the whole wheat bun is tops among whole wheat buns.
Side Dish: Burgers come with a side of fries of your choice, or you can upgrade to get a salad our soup for $1.99 more. Don't forget to order a classic drink such as Boylan's cream soda, orange cream, root beer or ginger ale ($3.25).
