Barnacle Bills: Great buryers & terrific pub

Trying to find the best burger in Central Jersey, and I've been reading all the comments in this website. Gotta get to Rossi's eventually, but hit Barnacle Bill's last night. There was an hour wait, but I was fixated on that cheeseburger that the servers kept walking by with, so I wasn't leaving. Turned out only to be 40 minutes. In the meantime, very active bar and fresh peanuts with shells on the floor.

It was worth the wait! 10 oz burger, cooked exactly as ordered, and piping hot. Fries also piping hot. Juicy burger, sauteed onions and mushrooms. Just when we thought we had the perfect night, a small band started up in the far corner. Guitars and guys singing some mellow tunes (started off with "You Got that Lovin Feeling"). We eventually left with stomachs full and singing whatever tune they were playing.

Looking forward to Rossi's, but this is a go to place.
