Doylestown Brewing Co. burgers

Burgers and more burgers. Anyone else craving a burger? McDonald’s isn’t going to cut it — you need something that’s fresh, cooked well and local. Good thing we hunted down a few burger night specials and locations with great burgers:

  • Wycombe Publick House, Wycombe, PA: It’s burger night on Mondays. Get $2 off all their signature burgers. My favorite is the Wrightstown Burger: crumbled blue cheese and bacon.
  • Continental Tavern, Yardley, PA: Half priced burger nights on Mondays.
  • McCoole’s Red Lion Inn, Quakertown, PA: $6.99 burgers, your choice of beef, chicken, portabella (bison excluded). Deal’s on Tuesdays.
  • Carversville Inn, Carversville, PA: Grilled-to-order burgers every Tuesday night.
  • Doylestown Brewing Co., Doylestown, PA: Enjoy ½ priced burgers for dine-in only.
  • New Hope Winery, New Hope, PA: Starting at 4 pm on Thursdays, enjoy $10 burgers and rotating $3 draft beers.

Local seafood specials. If you can’t make it to the shore before the summer ends, you can still enjoy the taste of a seaside dinner, locally. In and around Bucks County, you’ll find plenty of local lobster and seafood specials:

  • The Buck Hotel, Feasterville-Trevose, PA: Seafood and dinner buffet on Mondays, complete with a raw bar, snow crab legs, carving station, hot buffet, and more. Also on Tuesdays it’s Lobster Fest after 5 pm. Enjoy lobster with a soup or salad, and sides a la carte.
  • Fran’s Pub, New Hope, PA: All you can eat crab legs and trivia night on Tuesdays.
  • 59 Almshouse, Richboro, PA: Buck-a-shuck oysters on Thursdays.
  • DeAnna’s, Lambertville, NJ: Happy hour raw bar on Thursdays and Fridays, with $1 clams, oysters, and shrimp.

Logan’s Summer BBQ. Celebrate the end of summer with a classic summer BBQ at the Logan Inn in New Hope this Wednesday, August 23. They’ll be grilling up all of your summer favorites on their patio. For more information and the full menu, click here. Please call the inn to save your spot!

Bucks County summer produce

Farmers market fun. Stop by your area farmers markets this week, and pick up some peaches, zucchini, tomatoes, mixed greens, and other local items like jams, honey, treats, and more. The markets should be bursting with plenty of summer produce, so don’t miss out!

Check out which market is near you, or try a new one!

Fajitas and ‘ritas. You know what pairs well with $5 margaritas? Sizzling fajitas. Thursday nights are now Fajita-Rita-Nights at the Rising Sun Inn.

From 5 – 10 pm, you can enjoy chicken, steak or shrimp fajitas with warm tortilla shells, peppers, onions, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and salsa. The guac’ is a dollar extra. Eat your fajitas in the tavern or on the deck.

Peppers are great in fajitas, but did you know you can also roast them up for a delicious roasted soup? This recipe for roasted red pepper soup is better than the more predictable gazpacho, and if you are craving a soup, this one is perfect for summer!
