How they describe themselves? “A badass burger-creating, in-house-butchering, beer-pouring alternative to the bland.”

To start, BBD stands for Beer, Burger and Desserts! Sounds delicious right? It’s definitely the place to splurge and enjoy the “day-off” your diet!

Located in Rocky Point, Long Island, is owned by Chef Ralph Perrazzo, that has an amazing background experience in high-ended restaurants. Curious to know which ones? Bradley Ogden at Caesars Palace, Jean-George in Manhattan and Clio in Boston.

After learning and tailoring his expertise at these esteemed restaurants, he decided to fly solo and start is own business.

He explains it better:

There are a plethora of “Burger” restaurants flooding the market as of late, but BBD’s stands out among the pack for being the only one that makes all three cooking styles of burger.

Craving a big juicy Steakhouse Burger, cooked the way you like it on a wood & charcoal grill, with your choice of toppings? BBD’s has it.

Got a hankering for that sloppy, griddle burger with all the fixings and a secret sauce? It’s there. In the mood for a steamed burger, with spot-on onion flavor infused and a super soft bun? It’s waiting for you.

Everything is literally done in-house: from the burgers and sausages to their chicken nuggets in the kid’s menu. Their craftsmanship certainly differentiates them from other businesses.

Also, BBD is also part of the craft beer movement and offers ’25 direct draw draught brews and 40+ bottles’.

The desserts? Ah! Surely work aaaall the calories. Chef Ralph is known from having fantastic sweet-hands and his desserts are to-die-for.

All dishes are quite unique and has a special touch, that entertains and amuses guests

Hence, they are always coming back for more!
