If burgers and the boogeyman sound like the perfect combination to you, allow us to introduce to you the Haunted House of Hamburgers, where they love Halloween, they love hamburgers, and it’s spooky season year-round.
The restaurant opened in the fall of last year in a shuttered Farmingdale Friendly’s, according to the Long Island Press, and they’re Long Island’s only Halloween-themed restaurant.
Owner Jordan Desner told the Press that he always loved Halloween and had the restaurant concept in mind for a while before finally turning it into a reality. Though this reality is more nightmarish than dreamy.
Both the inside and outside of the restaurant are covered head to toe in spooky Halloween decor, from coffins and light up ghosts to bubbling cauldrons and full-sized horror characters (close your eyes on the way in if clowns aren’t really your thing, because Pennywise is waiting outside to greet you).
The decor even makes its way to the bathroom, where you’ll find a skull toilet.
Rest in peace under a ceiling that lights up to Halloween music as you dig into a selection of dishes including delicious hamburgers (of course), mouth watering appetizers, fresh green salads, hot soups, and so much more.
Tombstone Tacos, Slayer Sliders, Scared to the Boneless Wings, and Casket Quesadillas make for perfect sharing bites before digging into bigger dishes such as the Killer Clown Clam Chowder, Buffalo Chicken Flatbread RIPizza, the Sea Monster Surf and Turf Burger, and the Foggy Night Fettuccine Alfredo.
If you haven’t been scared off yet, we suggest sticking around for dessert as well–the Death By Chocolate Cake sounds like the perfect way to end your…meal!
For those that need a bit of liquid courage, fear not–there’s a lovely selection of Crypt Keeper Cocktails as well.
The Zombie Breakout combines Stoli citrus vodka, St. Germain, strawberry, and mint leaf, the Grave Digger is made with Kahlúa, coffee vodka, and heavy cream, and the Smoked Witches Spell combines Empress 1908 gin, sparkling lemonade, blue curacao, and a rosemary spring.
And, what gives us the creeps the least is their Haunted Happy Hour, which features great food and drink deals Monday through Thursday from 3 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Costumes are encouraged and be sure to grab some free candy on your way out! Learn more on their website here.
