I just had an awesome burger at Surf Dog Bar and Grill in Woodbine down in Cape May County. I got the big dog or something like that. It was a giant burger grilled perfectly, just the right amount of char, then beer battered and deep fried! It is one of the better burgers I’ve ever had.
It came with onion rings and fries. The onion rings were sweet and crispy. I’m not a huge onion ring fan but these were delicious and I ate them all. The fries were possibly the best fries I’ve ever had as an included side with a burger. They were crispy and meaty and had that perfect beefy oil flavor that comes from clean but not brand new oil. These guys know how to fry. They clearly know the sweet spot of the melange of flavors you get from used oil while knowing you have to keep it spotlessly clean so you don’t have everything taste burned.
If you are in Cape May and don’t mind a biker bar (I was the only non biker in the place) it’s worth a stop. The guy behind the bar was very friendly and none of the bikers cared in the least that I was an “outsider”.
