I had the opportunity to speak with Eddie Fahmy, owner A2Z Consulting and spokesperson for the Bethpage Burger Bar, the latest buzz on Long Island. The Bethpage Burger Bar is a family friendly eatery that serves different types of burgers, comfort food and vegetarian dishes, something for everybody! Their goal is to make everybody feel welcomed, provide friendly service, and serve delicious food and drinks in a safe environment. Eddie and Chef David also paid attention to safety protocols and installed the latest technology point of sales system with each table having its own QR code so customers can order and pay for their meal right from their own phone.
Opening a restaurant during a pandemic is quite risky wouldn’t you agree? “Yes, we wanted to create jobs for the people who worked for us in the past as well as those who are in need of one. We also knew that with all of our safety protocols in place along with our delicious food and affordable prices, people will keep coming back. So far, we have been very lucky as we are seeing recurring business and many new faces. We keep hearing how our new customers were recommended by somebody who just ate there. That is what we knew would happen and we are so grateful that people not only love the food, but the excellent service and ambiance.” There are so many great food choices for even the pickiest eater and that is what Eddie really focused on with the team. “The team wanted a simple concept that matched the design and layout of the place so I worked closely with Chef David. We know that everybody loves basic foods; i.e. burgers, sandwiches, chicken wings, shakes, etc., so the menu items were developed from there. We also took into consideration the vegetarians. Many more people are eating healthy so we wanted to provide healthier options.”
The Bethpage Burger Bar has a great party room that can host any intimate event. The design layout is quite retro and welcoming. “Yes, we designed a party room to host parties and events with affordable packages to meet all budgets. We have several booked so far and as we keep getting busier. I have a good feeling that our party room with become very busy with the holidays around the corner.”
Eddie shared with me how food brings people together and that is how most friends and family’s discuss their day and life in general. “Growing up, dinner was a time for me and my siblings to sit with my parents and talk about school, friends and just share laughs over a delicious meal. I want people to come to the Bethpage Burger Bar and do the same with their friends and family.”
The Bethpage Burger Bar is open Monday – Friday 4:00pm – 10:00pm and Weekends 10:00am – 10:00pm. First responders receive a free meal Monday – Wednesday, a great way to give back to our local heroes.
